Jersey Applique Tutorial

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.


You’ll need:

  • jersey knit fabric
  • yarn
  • needle with a rounded point
  • scissor
