If you’ve been around this blog for a while then you know I value making time to make things. For me, the time I spend creating is restorative and fulfilling. And, I believe the same is true for many of you, too.
With that thought in mind I am so excited to share my latest design. The Tea Time Appliqué set. A simple appliqué design set that’s perfect for busy people who love to create.I understand for many of you that time may be an issue, or you don’t have a dedicated sewing space. I imagine there are a million different reasons that get in the way of your sewing. The Tea Time Appliqué Set is fashioned with that thought in mind. It is designed so you can carve out a few moments and create fun tea-related vignettes.
The Tea Time Appliqué set includes both large and small designs for all the elements you see in the cover image. A large and small teapot, teacup, saucer, spoon, bird, plus a few accessories to make your design unique.
It’s a pretty straight forward pattern: Trace, fuse, and stitch. Voila! You’ve created a masterpiece. The templates are professionally drafted designs and the pattern includes 6 Sample Layouts for inspiration. All of the templates are ideal for creating unique quilt blocks.
Can you think of a more enjoyable way to use up all of your fabric scraps? And, you don’t need a lot of time, space, or materials.

I understand that many of you are new (or newly returned) to sewing and have never appliquéd anything before. I did not forget you. I have written a 47-page eBook called Appliqué Made Easy: A Beginner’s Guide to Simple Appliqué Techniques. If you’ve never appliquéd anything before, this eBook will explain all of the details.
The book is broken down into five different chapters that cover the following topics.
- Essential Sewing and Appliqué Supplies
- Straight Stitch Appliqué
- Zigzag Appliqué and Lettering Technique
- Reverse Appliqué
- Fussy Cut Appliqué
Appliqué Made Easy is designed to take you through the process of learning appliqué. Each chapter allows you to build skills and knowledge before moving forward. You will follow a series of instructions and photographs that take you step-by-step through the process of appliqué.
Once you’ve found success with a few simple projects, you will be able to move on to creating your very own unique appliqué designs. Also included are four practice templates that teach you appliqué basics.
Not sure if applique is for you. Watch this short video and see how simple it is.
I am so excited to see what you create with these designs. When you post your appliqué art on Instagram be sure to tag me at #theseasonedhomemaker. Also, use the tag #seasonedapplique so others can see and share.
All that’s left to do is imagine the possibilities.
