These are instructions on how to embroider the applique designs from the Flowers in My Garden Applique Set.

You will need base fabric, fabric for the applique, light-weight stabilizer, embroidery threads and temporary fabric adhesive in a stick.

Step One: Hoop the base fabric stabilized with the stabilizer needed for your project. We used light-weight cut-away stabilizer.

Upload the file into your machine. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider an outline of the shape and stop.

Step Two: Place a very small amount of the fabric glue inside the shape. Cover the shape with a piece of fabric, press a little with the tips of your fingure so that the applique fabric adheres to the base and does not shift during embroidery. Start the machine.
The machine will embroider the same shape over the applique fabric and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the shape as close to the stitches as possilbe. Return the hoop to the machine.

Step Five: Return the hoop to the machine and let it finish the raw edges. Change threads when needed. The designs have a blanket-stitch finish. We recommend to use cotton threads for the finish.
