We love all sorts of sewing at Prints to Polka Dots, each has its own strengths, and what we really love about applique is the way you can create something very personal and special out of, what appear to be, no more than scraps.
- Personalise a larger sewing project – the classic zipper pouch, cushion cover or tote bag etc…
- Turn a plain t-shirt or top into an upmarket, unique piece.
- Upcycle old clothes with holes in with the use of regular or reverse applique.
- Create beautiful pictures in embroidery hoops or on cushion covers, telling the recipient you really know what makes them tick.
Whatever you choose to do, make it fun! Read through our guides and tip sheets and above all GO SLOW and you will be producing beautiful pieces in no time!
