My fabric appliques/patches are constructed to be supple, thin and flexible. They contour well to curved surfaces without feeling rigid or uncomfortable. In addition, I use high-quality paints, pigments, and cotton fabric. This helps the product resist fading, cracking, peeling and flaking. However, care must be used when washing the applique to keep it looking its best: (Turn item inside out before washing) Wash on gentle cyle, cold/cool setting; or hand wash Use only mild soap/laundry detergent Do not add fabric softener or other laundry additive Air drying* is recommended, or tumble dry on gentle cycle *Lay flat, face up to air dry
I happily accept orders for custom fabric appliques, but please see below for limitations and restrictions when submitting requests: Copyrighted or Trademarked items cannot be requested (example: Disney characters, comic book characters, movie/tv/music celebrities, sports team logos, product logos or designs, etc). Standard applique requests should have a minimum size of 2" x 2" and maximum 8" x 10". Color-changing applique requests are limited to 5" x 5" maximum if the entire item changes color; or up to 8" x 10" if the color change is used as accent color. Minimum size is 2" x 2". Available color-changing colors are: violet, blue, yellow, orange
Each applique is hand-painted using high-grade paints that I either create myself (for color-change and special effects) or purchase (for standard colors), so there will be slight differences in tones, textures, color saturation, etc. This is part of the handmade appeal.

No-sew/no-iron appliques (patches) are created using peel-and-stick adhesive backing. They are the fast, easy, and convenient way to attach my appliques and patches. No iron or sewing machine required: 1) Carefully peel away paper lining (make sure not to touch the adhesive on back) and place on your project. 2) Firmly press down on the applique/patch, making sure it sticks securely and completely to the item. 3) You're done. All of my no sew/no iron products are washable and/or dry cleanable. Custom orders can be requested for no sew/no iron backing (for an additional fee). Please send convo for details.
They are appliques & patches that are painted using UV sensitive fabric paints that I have created. The paints behave just like regular fabric paints but are developed to give my products a fun, unique, special-effect. The color-change paints display intense, vivid color when exposed to UV rays (sunlight) and fade to light pastel or nearly white when not in sun.
Absolutely!...all of my items are made by hand. I generally use durable cotton fabric (but I also make custom/special designs from cotton blend, denim, silk, canvas, linen or other material) and quality fabric paints and/or pigments. My appliques and patches are not machine manufactured or embroidered.
