Fabric Stickers with the Sewing Hive

This DIY will show you how to make and embroider a “fabric sticker” to add Holiday Cheer to your accessories. This is also known as applique. It can be used to decorate t-shirts, fabric gift bags, linens, jeans, or whatever fabric object could use a touch of fun this season. 

The supplies required are:

  • fabric with a motif, like the one on the bag
  • double-sided fusible interfacing, like Wonder-Under brand from Pelloniron,
  • ironing board and a pressing cloth
  • embroidery hand stitching needle
  • embroidery floss
  • craft scissors and fabric scissors or pinking scissors
  • straight pins


There will be kits available to purchase for those who would like order from The Sewing Hive website that include:-a pre-cut and prepared fabric for applique with the sticky back attached (motif choices: snowman, holiday cars, winter sweaters and gingerbread houses)-embroidery floss and in contrasting color-handmade 7″x 9″ drawstring bag ( color choices: red, navy, aqua, evergreen, winter white, cobalt blue) with contrasting ribbon and beads-written instructions with a YouTube link you can use to do a “sew-along”

Customers that order kits will need to supply their own needles, ironing equipment and straight pins. This is for safety reasons. Kits can be mailed (a shipping fee will be included) or picked up at The Sewing Hive in Columbus, Ohio.
