Easiest Appliqué -- the "Magic Design Transfer" method

Easiest Appliqué -- the "Magic Design Transfer" method

This is my FAVORITE way to do simple, raw-edge appliqué. It is super fast, totally simple, and you will never have to reverse your image again! Take your appliqué design from paper to fabric in seconds without the hassle and confusion of reversing your image.

This was from my recent appearance on Creative Living with Sheryl Borden. I had a ball on set with her, she's been on the air since the 70's and is a totally pro. Grab your free copy of the Lettering Appliqué Pattern seen in the video, and make your own project using whatever word(s) you like!

Hi, I wanted to ask for suggestions because when I tried this technique, the color from the sharpie does not transfer. What am I doing wrong? I had the video playing as I was trying.

Hi, Shannon, I downloaded the pattern. I see instructions, but don’t see the actual letter patterns. What am I missing? Thank you.
