How to Reverse Applique a Tote Bagcomments (31) June 3rd, 2008
Reverse applique involves layering several fabrics together, and then cutting pieces away to reveal what's underneath. This tutorial shows you how.
What you'll need:
Woven cotton fabric in three colors
Fabric pencil or marker
Small, thin sewing needle
Thread to coordinate with all three fabrics
Then, when you cut fabric for the front panel of your tote, cut this same piece in three different fabrics. These three fabrics will make up the colors of your reverse-applique design. Stack these pieces on top of each other, with the right side of each one facing up.
Pin all three fabrics together, and make note of which order they're in - you'll need this information in a minute!
