This is a method for doing Cut-In-Place Applique'.

I have had a lot of customers that have asked me how to do applique'. This is a how to, or DIY method for sewing it out yourself. I will try to do a digitizing article for this later.

There are two main methods for making applique'. There is Pre-Cut Applique' and Cut-In-Place method for making applique'.

The First Step is to hoop your shirt, blanket or other item that you are appliqueing. For this example I am using backing and placed a towel in a 7.25" square hoop.

I placed the cloth over the hoop and smoothed it out. If you were doing this in a production setting you could use a temporary adhesive spray to hold the cloth down and smooth it out.

The first part of the design sews a running stitch around the perimeter of the design. Stop the machine at the end of this step.

Cut the excess cloth from the design. It is easier to cut if you can remove the hoop from the machine. You must cut the cloth very close to the stitches.

Replace your shirt on your embroidery machine and the design then sews the cover stitch of the applique down.

The final step is to start the machine again and stitch the satin stitch down.
