Embroidery applique patches – applique or embroidery patch; what is the difference?
They are piece of cloth with a logo/text embroidered/printed, and with finished border. They can have an iron on backing, Velcro backing, or adhesive backing; they can also be applied by a sewing machine. Patches/appliques applied by sewing called “sew on patches / sew on applique”.
In an embroidery design, when we need to cover a large area/background with another color, we have two ways to do that: The first is to use a piece of cloth (called applique) and place in that area/background and cover its edges with a satin-stitch border; the second option is to fill that area/background with stitches. This method needs a lots of stitches and costs more than the first one.
A design done as a patch can also have an applique inside it to save the stitches/cost.
