"raw edge" applique sounds dirty.
as you can see, i used a blanket stitch to sew scraps of fabric onto a foundation piece. the foundation piece is a giant old sheet.
all raw edge applique.
dont go crazy if your sewing machine does not have a blanket stitch ... zig zag stitches work great for raw edge... you can also raw edge with with a straight stitch or, a hem stitch. try out whatever stitches u have.
try matching thread, contrasting thread. try everything!
