What is appliqué?
Applique is a decorative technique that involves sewing or bonding pieces of fabric onto another piece of fabric. The word "appliqué" comes from the French word "appliquer," which means "to apply."
Applique can be used to create a variety of effects, from simple designs to intricate patterns. It can be used to add a touch of color, texture, or interest to any piece of clothing.
Why appliqué letters onto a jean jacket?
There are many reasons why you might want to appliqué letters onto a jean jacket. Here are a few:
To personalize your jacket: Appliqué letters are a great way to add a personal touch to your wardrobe. You can use them to spell out your name, initials, or a special message.
To add style: Appliqué letters can help you add a touch of style to your wardrobe. They can be used to create a variety of looks, from classic to trendy.
To update an old jacket: If you have an old jean jacket that you're tired of, you can give it a new lease on life by appliquéing some letters onto it.

To appliqué letters onto a jean jacket, you will need the following basic supplies:
Fabric - I love turquoise so I used Speckled "Metallic Turquoise" by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Ruby Star Society.
Iron-on adhesive - Heatn'Bond Feather Lite is perfect for this project.
Scissors - Your regular fabric scissors are great for this project, but I find having a pair of small embroidery scissors helps trim tight spaces in the letters.
Thread - Aurifil 50 wt thread in Light Jade matches perfectly with the fabric.
