Tips for Needleturn Applique


  • Freezer paper can be used to do applique. Trace out the shape on freezer paper and iron the wax side to the fabric. Cut around the shape, taking into account the seam allowance. Use spray starch to stabilize the piece.
  • A toothpicks works wonders to turn the fabric when doing needleturn applique. The heavy toothpicks also work well to tuck in spots when doing applique.
  • You don't have to pin when doing needleturn applique. Spray adhesive glue into a small bowl and use a Q-tip to apply the glue to the turned under edges of fabric. They will stay without pinning.
  • If you insist on using pins, pin from the back to reduce snags in the fabric.
  • If you are right-handed, hold the applique down with your left hand and applique counter-clockwise. Do the reverse if you are left-handed.
