An appliqué is a small, flat, ornamental piece that is usually affixed to a larger cloth surface, such as a clothing garment. Matthew F. Sheehan carries a large selection of clerical appliqués to choose from that can be used to decorate a variety of vestments and clothing items from shirts and scarves to chasubles more. Our high-quality full-color appliqués are available in a variety of designs to suit your needs.
One of the most popular symbols used in religious appliqués are crosses. The iconic symbol can be worked into a larger design or left alone for a simple, yet stunning piece. Choose a single cross represented on its own or opt for a stunning profile featuring an important Biblical figure and a cross. Our large selection of cross appliqués ensures you'll find the appropriate image for any occasion.
Our Christian appliqué designs are hand embroidered to ensure the highest quality possible. Many of our designs are done using gold metallic thread that contrasts beautiful on a range of background colors to help the appliqué stand out. Our designs range in size from a modest 4 inches high to 9 inches high and larger. The size that you choose will impact placement options, so please take into account the garment you wish to adorn before choosing your Christian appliqués. We recommend sewing your appliqués in place using a coordinating thread color for minimal design interruption. For the best results, choose a professional seamstress to perform the addition.
