Wood applique is an embroidery technique that involves covering a surface with cloth using a blanket stitch. The illusion of raised stitches or raised material on the fabric's surface is created in this way. Early European and American quilters adopted the technique, which has since been extended for use in other fields of design.
Spray starch the cloth you wish to applique, iron it flat, and cut out shapes that will make your design are all steps in the procedure. Then, to make a pattern, layer these shapes on top of each other.
You can apply this technique on any sort of cloth, including wood, although natural fibres like cotton and linen absorb more than synthetic materials like polyester, so they're better for it.
