Frequently Asked Questions

What types of payment do you accept?

There are two payment methods available: PayPal and Credit Card.


With PayPal you can pay using a credit card, debit card or bank account. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can still pay using a credit card by checking out as a PayPal guest.

Credit Card

Credit card payments through direct checkout are processed using Stripe. The following credit cards are accepted: Mastercard, Visa and American Express.

Credit card information is not stored or processed on our website; payment information is securely transmitted directly to Stripe’s server without it passing through our server so you can be assured your credit card information is safe.

You can read more about Stripe at their website.

There are heaps of ways in which you can use appliques including:

• Clothing embellishment

• Embellishing bibs, baby blankets, quilts, hats, bags etc

• Wall art, decorating canvases, etc

• Scrapbooking, card making

• Decorating tissue boxes and lamp shades

Your imagination is the limit!
