Took a class in appliqué, read multiple "how-to's" and was never able to grasp the process for appliqué. Purchased this and have made many many bags for kids and adults. Everyone that sees the bags asks me to make them one. Thank you!!

I never considered appliqueing before, but the number of great ideas I've seen changed my mind. The ebook really helped me learn the tricks of attaching the fabric, going round corners, etc. Very useful!

You have to read, "How to Applique" by Kimberbell Kids. Kim manages to take a complex applique process and simplify it into clear, concise instructions on applique and satin stitch techniques. Everyone from beginner to experiences will benefit from this eBook. Her tips and suggestions are invaluable -- and her artwork is just darling!

Simply put, I stunk at applique! T-shirts I'd appliqued on grew holes, appliques I put on jeans fell off in the wash and I couldn't get my stitches neat or even. It was a mess! I purchased "How to Applique the Easy Way" and my first project after reading the e-book is still together and looking great... after many wears and washes! The instructions are simple and clear and truly makes applique fun and easy!
