A method for securing a raised appliqué to a substrate and the articles resulting therefrom. The preferred method includes various steps of digitizing an ornamental pattern into a computer format, then using that format to stitch, cut, and embroider an appliqué and wadding material onto a substrate, such that the appliqué is three dimensionally raised in portions by the wadding material, and the resulting combination of substrate, wadding material and appliqué material may then be sculpted out to form an attractive raised appliqué design suitable for use on any substrate, but especially garments, headwear and similar articles.
