i'm giving away scarves as presents for xmas & i love the way appliques/patches/whatever look on knitted scarves.  i wanted to prettify them by adding some. anyway i have a few questions :
  • what kind of material are theses generally made of?
  • how exactly do you put these on scarves?
  • do they hold up well?
  • how do they hold up in the wash?
any help is appreciated Smiley

Do you have any pictures or examples of what you are thinking of? I would imagine that felt would be nice/easy... you don't have to turn under the edges or anything...
Another option is get some of that Sulky stuff from fabric store. Its clear plastic-y stuff that you can sandwich around pieces of fabric, scraps of yarn, sequins, etc- then you stitch through all the layers and either rinse away the plastic or iron it away (depends on the type of product you use). Its really fun to use- I've made a lot of things with this, but unfortunately have no idea where it is right now, I'll try to post a pic if I can find an example.

i was thinking of using felt, but it seems like it would pill after its been washed.
i've never heard of that sulky stuff, sounds pretty nifty.
