Hayley Smith, founder of Craft Yourself Silly, draws on her bestselling range of Tessepatch(R) kits for inspiration.

You can also use the templates individually as appliqu motifs to customize items you already own.
Hayley covers all the essentials of patchworking, from the properties and uses of different fabrics to the key equipment you will need to cut and sew your pieces with ease. Her detailed step-by-step instructions and templates ensure your projects come together just right the first time.
