If you’ve never decorated anything with appliques, then you are definitely missing out. Appliques are the best way to add your own style and flair to any quilting project, item of clothing, or décor in your home. When something looks too drab, you can spice it up and make it fun with applique designs that are totally customized to your liking.
Appliques can easily be ironed or sewn on to your already-existing projects when you want to update them and keep them looking good as new. No one will know how long that quilt has been draped over your couch when they see the new appliques you’ve put on it to bring a new feel to the room. They’ll especially be surprised when they notice that your pillows look new and expensive, only to find out that it was quick and thrifty to give them such a refreshed look.
It can also be especially frustrating to pick out just the right clothes for the little ones that keep on growing. (And how many times have you tried to get the same stain out to no avail?) Make life a little simpler by buying plain shirts in bulk and sewing on different applique patterns to each one. Voila! New and improved t shirts at a fraction of the cost. There really are a million and one uses for appliques on your clothes, for your kids, and around the house.
