Here at Alice Caroline, we love appliqué. It’s a great way to add a personal touch to any sewing project. From simple shapes to intricate designs, the possibilities really are endless! We have a handy selection of pre-cut shapes in a variety of designs – these are great for beginners just starting out with appliqué as it removes the need for cutting and measuring but also great for those of us who just can’t be bothered! ???? Read on for some appliqué project inspo.
How we use pre-cuts:
Liberty Rainbow Butterfly T-Shirt
Add a unique touch to a plain t-shirt. Simply appliqué your shapes onto the front or back of the t-shirt either by sewing machine or by hand. You could also combine multiple shapes to create a more complex design.
Hexie Pin Cushion
Another one of our loves is English paper piecing and our pre-cut hexagons are SO great for EPP projects. we’ve appliquéd a pincushion with a pretty hexie flower! The perfect home for your sewing pins.
Flower Appliqué Jeans
If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try adding a pop of Liberty to your jeans with some appliqué designs? This is a great way to add a personal touch to your wardrobe and give your old jeans a refresh!
Butterfly Appliqué Cushion
Whether you’re sprucing up an old cushion or creating a whole new design, cushions are another super easy project and a great way to customise your home decor.
Handmade Greetings Cards
You can also create the most lovely handmade cards. Why not add additional embellishments too, such as sequins or ribbons?
