Reverse Applique and RETRO Pillow Challenge!

I've seen some pretty cool reverse appliques the past couple of years, but Richochet and Away has the most detailed, funky reverse appliqued projects ever!!!! Look at this checkered pattern on a bag! She's got 8 more amazing reverse applique projects HERE.

To see how to make such intricate appliques, check out her
reverse applique tutorial.

Join Ricochet and Away and Sew La Vie for The Retro Pillow Challenge! You can use this technique to make the winning pillow!


  1. Michelle,
    Thanks so much, this feature is just awesome! As for the challenge, I hope no one feels they aren't skilled enough at sewing to enter. I am taking the challenge in an effort to try regular applique and quilting for the FIRST time. We've linked up some great tutes to help everyone along the way. Plus, remember it's a "challenge" not a "competition". There will be some voting, but just for fun and bragging rights. Our goals are to meet new friends, teach, and learn.
    We love Some day Crafts!

  2. Thanks so much for featuring the Retro Pillow Challenge!!! We already have eight participants - I am so excited and can't wait to see what each one is going to sew up during September! By the way I LOVE the chevron pillow in your following post. It's an example of how a design can be so simple and so effective! I'll be sure to check back and read up on a few more blog entries here :-)
