What is Applique

We have an Intro to Applique class this weekend and I was just thinking, perhaps people don't even know what applique is. So I googled it to see if I could find a nice little definition and here is what I borrowed from the about.com site.

Question: What is Applique?

Answer: Appliqué is a kind of patch that is applied to clothing. While patches are used to repair clothing, appliqué's are used to decorate. Many patches are often put together to make an object or scene. Different fabrics are selected for the individual patches to add texture, contrast and style.

 In the class, we are going to teach you easy techniques for learning how to cut out your own designs and add them to just about anything. You'll see just how easy it is to do. You just need to practice to make your designs look professional.
