This excerpt from the pomegranate atarah video tutorial focuses on the technique of making machine appliques from silk dupioni fabric. Spoiler alert: Use sheer fusible interfacing to back the appliques, and baste the appliques on to the background fabric before finishing the edges. The video walks you through the steps.
Use dupioni silk when you want to give your machine applique project a really special touch. The fabric’s texture creates a beautiful look and feel. It works especially well for an atarah (neckpiece) and corner pieces for a tallis, as in this project, or a challah cover.
The pomegranate atarah project is available as a PDF pattern in the shop.
