The “Applique in the Hoop” technique is described below. These steps of Placement, Tack Down, TRIM, and Satin (Cover stitch) are the same for each applique design available on this website. While some designs may have many applique elements/pieces and some just have a few applique elements/pieces the overall process is the same.
Single stitch that outlines the applique shape.
|Place applique fabric over the Placement stitch.|
|Tack Down stitch to secure the applique fabric to the background fabric.|
|TRIM the applique fabric as closely as possible to the Tack Down stitch.|
|Note the closely Trimmed applique fabric|
|Satin stitch – will cover the edge of the applique shape.|
