A piece of background fabric is placed in the hoop and onto the machine. The design will stitch an outline of the appliqué shape(s).
You then place the appliqué fabric over this outline shape.
The outline stitching is repeated, attaching the fabric to the base.
The excess appliqué fabric outside the stitch line is cut away manually with scissors.
The machine then stitches a “tack-down” line of zig-zag stitching around the shape, followed by a decorative stitching line.
Embroidered appliqué is very precise and can include additional accent stitches to create unique and beautiful designs.
