Apple Appliqué Set

The Fruit Appliqué Set consists of six machine embroidery designs.
You will need scraps of fabric of different colors. We recommend to lightly starch the scraps so it is easier to work with them.

Fruit Applique Set

All designs are basically embroidered in the same way. Fisrt the machine embroiders an outline of a shape on which you should place a piece of fabric. Then the machine embroiders the outline of the same shape over the fabric, after that you need to cut away the excess fabric. Finally the machine finishes all raw edges with a satin stitch outline.
If there are several shapes in the appliqué design, this procedure is repeated with every part. As an example, we used the embroidery of the grapes.

Step One: Hoop your base fabric (the fabric on which you are making the embroidery) with a stabilizer. Thread the needle with embroidery thread. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider an outline of the grapes and stop.

Place a piece of fabric over the outline, and start the machine. It will embroider the outline of the grapes again and stop.

With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the excess fabric as close to the outline as possible.

Return the hoop to the machine, it will secure the fabric with light zig-zag.

Step Two: Start the machine again. It will embroider the outline of the leaf. Cover the outline with a piece of fabric and start the machine. It will embroider the outline over the fabric.

Cut away the excess fabric as close to the outline as possible and return the hoop to the machine.

Step Three: Return the hoop to the machine and finish the embroidery. The final outline has stops that allow you to change the thread that you use for the grapes and the thread that you use for the leaves, if you wish. Thus, we made the outline of the grapes in purple and the outline of the leaves in green.

We embellished terry-cloth towels with these appliqué. When working with terry-cloth, use water-soluble stabilizer, and sandwich the fabric between two layers of the stabilizer.When the embroidery is finished, cut away the excess stabilizer close to the embroidery.
