How To: Do Reverse Applique

To do Reverse Applique You Need:

  • 1 or 2 layers cut away stabilizer
  • Plain fabric
  • Contrast fabric
  • Batting: Thin layer 
  • Embroidery Thread
  • Sharp point Scissors

 

  • Hoop the stabilizer and the fabric. (If you want to add a thin layer of batting, it can be placed between the stabilizer and top fabric)
  • Stitch the Design according to the Color Chart

Stop after the 2d Outline (Inner Line) for the Flower stitched.
Remove the hoop and without un-hooping the design cut on the inner running stitch to remove the center fabric. Remove all the layers of fabric from the inner section as shown below.

  • TIP: I found that sharp point scissors work the best, but you can also try a crafters blade.
  • Make sure you place your design on a wooden board when cutting with a blade

 

Turn hoop over and use a temporary adhesive pray (suitable for your embroidery machine) to keep the Contrast Fabric and Batting in place

  • Place the hoop back and embroider the next Color Stops.
  • The Contrast fabric will be secured with a Decorative Stitch.

 

And this is the end result of this Unique Reverse Applique technique.

We use the Sashiko Plumeria Decorative Pillow with Reverse Applique to demonstrate this technique.
