Flower Applique Set

These are instructions on how to embroider and make blocks with the designs from the Flower Applique Set.
There are 12 designs for large (5" x 7") hoop in the set.
All designs have a blanket stitch finish.

All designs are embroidered in the same way. 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 first 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 the next step. 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 Four: If the design has more than one shape, repeat steps 1 through 3. Thus, to continue with this block, return the hoop to the machine and embroider the next shape:
