Create hand or machine applique with 'Harris Tweed' - in easy steps! Chris Hammacott leads you through plump cushions, quirky tea cosies, a table runner and a wall-hanging, all given the rugged but cosy personality of 'Harris Tweed'. Designs are inspired by Chris's croft life on the Isle of Lewis; and her sheep, chickens, cats and pugs. The Kindle cover has reverse applique sheep. A scarecrow with tweed hat decorates a denim jacket; three-dimensional flowers enhance a sweater. Follow the guidelines and techniques, and watch the author demonstrating on the video clips. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more advanced student, Chris will convince you of the wonderful qualities of 'Harris Tweed' for applique.

About the Author

Chris Hammacott has been writing about, teaching, and designing textiles for over 30 years. Trained as a weaver, she has taught City & Guilds from her own distance learning centre. Chris was expelled from her first needlecraft lesson at school and since that experience has vowed to make textiles fun! Her motto is: 'if you like it, do it some more.' Chris's designs have appeared in quilting magazines in Australia, Europe, the USA and UK. She writes two regular magazine columns. In 2012, with her husband Andrew, she moved to a small croft in the Outer Hebrides. In her workshop there, Chris teaches all aspects of 'Harris Tweed', from spinning and natural dyeing to designing items made from the wonder cloth. Andrew weaves 'Harris Tweed' in the old weaving shed.
