    Quality applique is difficult...

    It’s especially difficult when done by hand. The human element means no guarantee that each cut out is exactly the same. As a result, hand cut applique can end up looking like a toddler made a mess no one wants (unless it is a gift from an actual toddler who put much time and love into it). This is one of the reasons why we don’t hand cut applique. Also, it would take a long time to hand cut all that imperfect applique.

  • What is Applique?

    Every Kiss Begins with Applique!

    Applique can make any garment stand out among the hordes of plain boring garments.

    If that picture wasn’t convincing enough, read on to discover why applique may be the right choice for you.

    Applique? Sounds fancy...

    The word "appliqué" derives from the French verb "appliquer," meaning "to put on." Applique is a sewing technique that involves stitching a small piece of fabric onto a larger one to make a pattern or design. We start by stitching the piece of applique to the shirt in the shape of your design. Then, a laser cuts where the design was stitched so we can remove the excess material around the outline.
