Appliqué

Appliqué or applied work is a method of applying one fabric to base fabric, which is applied using various stitch techniques.

There are two basic types, onlay and inlay. Onlay appliqué has many variations, but its basic form is applying a motif or shape onto a background fabric, which is then stitched either decoratively or blindly. Inlay appliqué consists of two fabrics contrasting in colour; the exact same shape is cut from both, and then swapped and laid into the other like a jigsaw.

  • I have always enjoyed hand stitching and when I saw the Certificate advertised, I knew it was for me and learnt four new techniques to a 'professional' standard, and have since continued onto the Diploma course. More Testimonials >
