a quick tip: hand appliqué with scotch tape

I’ve been doing more hand appliqué this past week and tried something out that you might already know. It worked for me so I thought I’d share it.

I had a piece up on my design wall with everything in place. Right next to me I spied my much-loved and silly frog shaped tape dispenser. Rather than fuss with finding my appliqué pins (they are wonderful pins, short and without big heads to get your thread all looped up in) I used scotch tape to hold my shape in place.kinard_tape_dispenser

It worked wonderfully well and left no residue since I worked on it immediately. I would peel off a piece as soon as I stitched up next to it and just move it over or take it off. I’ll show you more of the work in progress in a couple days.kinard_applique_with_tape
