Come practice and refine your hand stitch work for reverse appliqué. You will use a pattern developed specifically for this purpose and practice on this piece rather than on a design you care about.

Explore the tools you use, the role of trimming and clipping to your success, body mechanics, and how to hold your piece and more. Get tips and pointers on how to hand stitch like a pro. All you learn is applicable to both hand reverse appliqué and hand appliqué. You'll be glad you did.
