Applique is a longstanding craft technique which applies a pre-cut of piece of fabric onto a garment by embroidery stitches. The design is then complimented by other bit of embroidery fill or text which embellishes the fabric. It is most often used to create text on a garments where you can touch the fabric and the edges fray in a distressed finish
The garment is then taken off the machine and de-framed. Any loose threads are trimmed off.
At Banana Moon we have a specialist applique cutter to cut the fabric and a large number of embroidery heads which finish off the applique design. Our in-house design team design all of the applique designs and oversee the cutting of the fabric and the embroidery. Try co-ordinating a different colour fabric to the embroidery stitching to create a really pleasing contrast colour effect between the two.
