Machine Embroidery-Simple Machine Applique
Simple Machine Applique
Most machines nowadays have buil-int, programmed stitches. Use these to full effect with lustrous embroidery threads and a few satin ribbons to enhance any project.
To applique a ribbon or braid:
Stabilise the fabric by placing either Calico or Stitch ‘n’ Tear underneath.
Set the machine to zig-zag or choose from other built-in stitches.
Adjust the stitch size to desired length and width.
Lay a length of ribbon or braid along the fabric.
Lower the pressure foot over the far end of the ribbon (either centrally or over one edge).
Stitch through all layers to hold the ribbon in place.
Try a variety of different coloured ribbons and stitches to create colourful effects.
