Jersey applique is so beautiful and such an easy project – even for a sewing beginner or for your kids! It just takes some minutes, and it’s a perfect project to use up all those jersey knit scraps. You can choose a simple design for your jersey applique, such as dots, stripes or flowers, or a more complicated pattern.
The jersey is appliqued with running stitches by hand. But even if you hate hand sewing, don’t fear: jersey applique is really easy and fast to sew.

Using a paper pattern, cut out dots – or strawberries, ice cream cones or elephants! 😉
Applique the jersey dots with running stitches.
Tie an overhand knot and cut off the yarn ends.
I used the jersey applique to embellish a headband.
