The more you will experiment with the applique the more you will see the new look of the project.

Let us tell you about the different kinds of appliques and what kind of style you choose for the best results.

Fused Applique:

Applique is the way of connecting a beautiful layer of design to the dress but it can also be time-consuming and requires focus. Now people use the fusible technique to complete the work in no time and basically, it’s an iron-on adhesive way. You will be able to prepare an amazing and creative design for your dress and it’s not time-consuming at all.

By using the web, the fabric shapes you have fused with the base fabric and then machine stitching holds all the pieces together for the best-embroidered finishing to the clothes. You can try this technique as a beginner and by the constant practice, you will be successful in applying this trick.

Machine Applique:

There are two methods of doing applique through your sewing machine. The first method is the traditional method what we have seen always, track and trim. This method is old and may take the experience as well as lots of practice. Once this whole process gets complete then you have to trim the excessive parts of the clothes and your first applique method is completed.

The second way of applique by sewing machine is the pre-cut shape. These shapes can be bought from the shop or can be cut through the laser. Usually, people use a zig-zag stitch to create the smooth texture around the shape and to give strong stitches to the shape. Make sure that your computerized sewing machine for beginners is working in a way where half of the stitch is on the shape while half on the base of the fabric to connect them with each other.

Hand Applique:

This one requires lots of effort as well as time. So if you are the one who needs to learn everything about sewing then this technique is for you. This method is suitable for the quilting and for creating the dimensional design on the project. Traditionally people do it with the help of needle and thread to sew the shape on the base of the fabric but there are more ways to deal with it.

Another method is “needle-turn method” where one has to turn the needle in the seam allowance to complete the work. The hand applique method helps in adding motifs and beauty to the project which is definitely more in demand. People like to have more hand applique work due to the clean detailing and how it gives traditional look to the project.

Styles of Applique:

Now let’s talk about the type of applique we have:

Raw-Edge Applique:

This is the quickest applique style because it never demands to finish and turning off the edges. You just have to sew the specific shape to the background of the fabric and you are done. You can apply this fabric with two ways by hand and by sewing machine.

Reverse Applique:

Reverse applique is quite a different form of applying. Like in other appliques we stitch the motifs to the background but in this technique, we have to join the layer first and then stitch the motif on the top of it. In the end, cut the parts of the fabric to reveal the real shape of the motif.

Smooth Edge Applique:

In this method, you have to stitch the raw edges with the help of thread to give a clean and tidy look. In most of the party dresses, you can see smooth edge technique to give proper look to the dress. This look is required for the formal or party wear and finishing off the applique must be on point.

Decorative Stitch Applique:

This is the technique suitable for the people who know how to use decorative stitches. You can use a decorative stitch on the applique shape and this will definitely bring out the best in your design. Your project will look different due to the machine experiment.

Felt Applique:

It’s an easy way to create the designs and to attach the shapes with the fabric. The edges of the motifs you are going to attach to the fabric base do not require any kind of finishing and cutting. Just keep it simple and you are done with the felt applique. It will also elevate the applique technique for you.

Multi-Needle Hoop Applique:

This is one of the ideal technique for the sewers who are moving towards the advanced level. You have to create the large hoop with the help of sewing machine. You have to keep the position of the fabric strong and stitch each section with accuracy and neatness. This technique must be applied when you want to add detailing to the project for creative design.
