I don't do it but I've seen tons of books in the library in the quilting section about it.

i'm about to try my hand at making appliques. i actually own an embroidery machine, so it's made stupid easy for me. when i make a desing with my computer, it already makes it into an applique if i want it to.

this is how it goes:

1. it sews the outlines of the picture. it stops.
2. i put the applique-fabric onto the fabric onto which i'm going to sew the applique on.
3. it sews the outlines again, this time the applique fabric is on top of the actual fabric and gets all the stiches. the machine stops.
4. i use scissors to remove any excessive fabric. i push a button and the machine starts to make a thick zigzag stitch on the outlines of the applique.

if you don't have life's little luxuries (such as an embroidery unit) you will do these steps by hand and will forget about step one. so you need to sew the applique fabric onto the other fabric, preferably by the outlines that you want it to have (you can draw them onto the fabric). then you cut away the excessive fabric and use a tick but narrow zigzag to make the outlines.

mmkay?
