Applique Snake Set

These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Applique Snake Set. There are 2 designs in the set, one for the head and another for the tail of the snake.
You will need base fabric, fabric for the applique, light-weight stabilizer, and embroidery polyester or rayon threads. A fabric glue stick is also helpful.

The Tail

Step One: Hoop the base fabric stabilized with the light-weight stabilizer.

Upload the design file into your machine. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the shadow, so choose thread of the same color as your base fabric, but slightly darker.

Step Two: The second color will embroider the outline of the applique fabric. You can use the same thread as in step 1. After the machine stops, place a very small amount of the fabric glue inside the outline.

Cover the outline with a piece of fabric, press a little with the tips of your fingers 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 outline as close to the stitches as possible. Return the hoop to the machine.

Now the raw edges of the applique will be finished, so use a thread color that matches your project.

Step Four: The next color will embroider the area around the hole. Again, choose a color that works for your project.

Step Five: The last color will embroider the details of the snake tail. Choose a dark color for this step.

The Head

Step One: Hoop the base fabric stabilized with the light-weight stabilizer.

Upload the file into your machine. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the applique. After the machine stops, place a very small amount of the fabric glue inside the outline.

Step Two: The second color will embroider the outline on the applique fabric. You can use the same thread as in step 1. Cover the outline with the applique fabric and start the machine.

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

Now the raw edges of the applique will be finished, so use a thread that matches your project.

Step Four: Colors 4 and 5 embroider the area around the hole. Choose colors to match your project.

Step Five: The next color embroiders the snake's tongue.

Step Six: Colors 7 though 9 embroider the snake's eye. Use the colors recommended here:

Step Seven: the last color embroiders the details of the head. It should be dark.

Happy Embroidering!

We embroidered the applique on a pair of jeans. You can read about it on the project page.
