Scrappy Applique is a simple, fun, and quick raw-edge applique technique developed by me, Shannon Brinkley (that's me, looking pensively at Paris).
It's quick to pick up and allows for a lot of creative possibilities. You can totally do it, I promise.
You collage scrap fabric to create a mosaic look, then choose from the several different finishing options, ranging from super fast and easy to more intricate and detailed.

I was lucky enough to attend 2 workshops by Shannon. She was delightful and very inspirational. Shannon does a great job of describing and demonstrating her technique. This is a versatile idea that can be adapted to a simple project as well as more complicated ideas. Her patterns are detailed enough to be recognizable but simple enough to allow for all skill levels. The book is well written and has been a valuable resource for finishing my pieces. I am looking forward to creating some pieces using my grandkids artwork and plan to include them in the process. I would love to take another workshop with Shannon!

Shannon is a professional speaker/teacher but more than that, she kept the topic fun, interesting and exciting. Our guild members kept telling me how much they learned and what a great teacher you are Shannon. Thank you so much Shannon!
Shannon knows her field. She is very knowledgeable; it's refreshing to attend a class and have the instructor be able to answer all of your questions. Not only will I be using this technique for a long time, Shannon is very personable and friendly.
