Stash Happy: Applique Reviews

"All scraps, buts, notions, and leftover fabrics take on transformative
powers with applique in Shaffer's latest edition to the Stash Happy series.
The book abounds with brightness, joy, and creativity while providing
knowledgeable advice on creating and customizing a variety of projects. The
basics are carefully described, along with an applique sewing kit and
templates to prepare crafters. Multiple techniques are employed and well
explained in the creation of gifts, home furnishings, and items for adults
and children. Lines often have a hand-drawn quality, and although some of
the projects have unfinished seams, they never feel raw but, rather, homey
and comforting. The overall style of the book matches the projects in its
clean, simple, and precious design, with instructive, bright, colorful
photographs. Shaffer's outstanding color combinations and innovative color
schemes make this book a pleasure to flip through. Enticing and encouraging
for novices and experts alike." - Booklist
