Embroidery vs Applique

What are the main differences? Does one hold up better than the other?

Thanks,
Nikki

Embroidery is done entirely with thread, and appliques are done with a piece of fabric (or more pieces) that is sewn on with thread :-) Appliques by machine can be done with some embroidery accents as well! I find that both hold up really well (if done properly lol)! HTH!

That helps a lot. So, the applique can be outlined in any color you choose?

Thanks,
