Inspiration Gallery: Reverse Applique

By Twistie

I love reverse applique.

Whether it’s an elaborate South American mola like the one pictured above, or a simpler piece,

like this clever  set of instructions from Craftzine on how to use the technique to repair a ripped or stained shirt, the principle is the same. You take layers of cloth, and cut down to the layer you want for each individual part of the design. Once you’ve got your motifs cut, you bind the raw edges.

The results can be charmingly quaint

unexpected and whimsical:

historical:

via Stimpzilla’s Sumptuary Law

or quite, quite modern:

Whatever direction you decide to take it in, reverse applique will trot happily in it.

Now, I think I have an old beret that needs sprucing up….
