An applique like the Bullion Crest above is best affixed with glue. It is too thick to be sewn by hand unless you’re using a heavy duty needle, and a lot of strength. Save yourself the trouble, and take a look at our Glue Guide to find a glue that fits your needs!
This Diamond Shape Rhinestone Applique is great for adding sparkle to your outfit! The easiest way to attach this applique is by sewing it on. Glue may be too visible, and if it’s going on a delicate piece the glue may affect the garment’s flexibility. Use a strong invisible thread to secure it down.
There are some appliques that you can apply with heat like this 2.25″ Hot-Fix Stones Sq. Motif. Look for the terms “hot fix” or “heat transfer” to find these appliques. Use an iron to apply these by placing them on your garment then turning the clothing inside out and ironing on.
