Tear away stabilizer, standard type Fabrics for the applique, prelaundered as the finished product will be laundered. Draw Your Applique Design The first you need is a design to applique. A simple design with straight sides is easiest for beginners, so consider starting with a block, kite or star.
Either draw your design on the plain paper, or trace the design onto the tracing paper. Keep in mind that the finished applique will be a mirror image of your tracing.
Trace onto the Iron-On Adhesive Place the iron-on adhesive on top of your design, paper side up, and trace your design onto the adhesive. If your design is made up of more than one element, like the elephant and heart, you will need to trace each section separately. If there are sections next to each other, you need to decide which will go on top of the other.
Rough Cut the Design After your design pieces are traced, you need to separate them from the rest of the adhesive. Choose Your Fabrics This is one of my favorite steps — choose the fabric for each section. To make selecting easier I separate my fabrics into color families. Cotton woven fabrics are the easiest to work with, although you may want to experiment with other fabrics as you gain experience.
Beware of fabrics that fray because they often shred when laundered, and thicker fabrics like corduroy or velvet may be too difficult for some machines to handle smoothly. Fuse the Fabric to the Adhesive Heat your iron according to the directions that came with the adhesive. When the iron is hot, place the preshrunk fabric right front side down on your ironing surface and press to remove any wrinkles.
Place the adhesive, paper side up, on the wrong back side of your fabric. Fuse according to the directions that came with your adhesive. Cut out the Sections Cut out each section, following the tracing lines carefully.
Remove the Adhesive Backing Carefully peel the paper backing from the iron-on adhesive. If the backing is difficult to separate from the adhesive, tear the edge of the paper a little to get things started, or use a fingernail to separate the paper from the fabric.
If you have several pieces you may need to look at the pattern to remember how the sections fit together. When the applique looks the way you want it to, iron it down according to the directions that came with the adhesive. Add Some Details Using the water soluble pen or pencil, draw in any details you wish to add to the applique.
Now this part is a little tricky — holding the interfacing tightly, flip the item over and pin the interfacing on from the front. Stitch Your Applique Now comes the fun — stitching! Use a Satin stitch if your machine has it, otherwise use a Zig Zag stitch and decrease stitch length until the threads are sewn right next to each other.
Using a scrap piece of fabric, experiment with stitch width and length until you find an effect you like.
You want the thread to go into the applique fabric on one side and into the background fabric on the other, so the raw unstitched edge of the applique is completely encased in thread. On my Viking I generally use a stitch length of.
Unless you tend to lose them like I do. Line the applique up so the raw unstitched edge is in the middle of your presser foot and start stitching.
Go slowly at first, until you gain some confidence. There are several ways to turn corners; try different ways until you find one that works for you. The way I round a corner is by stitching to the end of the fabric until the thread is even with the bottom edge of the fabric.
Then I sink the needle in the very outermost point of the corner, where the two sides meet. Raise the presser foot, leaving the needle sunk into the fabric, and pivot the fabric to the right so the raw edge is lined up in the middle of the presser foot.
Lower the presser foot and continue sewing. Curves are easier than corners, and wide curves may not require any pivoting. Stitch wide curves slowly so the stitches remain even. Sharp curves may require a pivot to keep the raw edge in the middle of the presser foot.
When stitching an outer corner, like the outside of an O, stop with the needle down on the background fabric, then pivot just enough to line the raw edge up. When stitching an inner corner, like the inside of an O, stop with the needle down in the applique fabric and pivot just enough to keep the raw edge in the center of the presser foot.
