pattern. The polyester twill has a high gloss coating applied to the surface

that it is also the number one fabric used for applique embroidery designs in
the market today!
<<< CHINO DISTRESSED
Chino Twill is a 100% Cotton
fabric and is the #1 choice for Distressed Appliqué style designs.
Distressed Appliqué is a unique cutting pattern performed by a special
fabric laser which causes the material to "Purposely" fray and fall
Chino Twill does not have any
coatings or finishes applied to the surface, so the fabric has just a plain
cotton look and feel to it. What is unique about chino twill is its uncanny
ability to curl and fray at the edges. Basically, the more you wash and wear
it, the more it will distress.

Long before there was
polyester twill fabric, felt was the choice for Appliqué designs.
Acrylic felt is soft and fuzzy and provides that Vintage Old-Fashioned look and
feel for Appliqué!
Using felt in an
Appliqué provides a traditional soft raised texture to the design,
similar to old style letterman sweaters. Yes, you can combine felt with other
fabrics in a layered effect to achieve interesting contrasts and classic visual
<< CALICO COTTON PRINTS

PLAID, FLANNEL & FLEECE
We offer so many kinds of
fabrics for applique its almost overwhelming, but its all about choices!! You
can incorporate almost any kind of soft fabric including plaids, flannel,
fleece or any kind of fabric. Basically, if we can cut it with our laser and
sew it, then we can use it for Appliqué work.
The only fabrics which should
be avoided for Appliqué work are materials containing resins, chemicals
or plastics which give off harmful or toxic gases when being cut or burned by
our laser equipment.
