Get liberated! Meg McElwee, author of the blog Sew Liberated and the boutique sewing pattern line by the same name, teaches you how to transform your sewing by adding personal touches with applique details and other handwork. Sew Liberated: 20 Stylish Projects for the Modern Sewist features a mouth-watering set of sewing projects, each of which has been embellished with applique.

You will learn hand- and machine-appliqué techniques for use outside the traditional quilting context while sewing some seriously stylish projects including aprons, skirts, pillows, a wall clock, blouses, and bags. McElwee's background as an early childhood educator stands out in the inspired section on sewing for children, which features a chef's hat and apron, an artist's smock, a blanket baby carrier and more. Step-by-step sewing project instructions, color photographs and illustrations, and comprehensive how-to appliqué and embroidery instructions make Sew Liberated an all-in-one resource and guide. Sew Liberated provides you with all levels of new techniques, creative challenges, and a full range of projects ranging in difficulty and time commitment.
