Updated; Embroidery Machine Appliqué Tutorial

Here is a quick tutorial on how to make an appliqué with your embroidery machine. It is a great skill to have. As you see here you can use your appliqué on anything; baby blankets, totes, towels and monogrammed gifts.
Materials you will need:

  • 1- scrap piece of appliqué fabric
  • 1- main fabric or for Customizable Acrylics use Embroidery Paper!!
  • Thread the color of the appliqué fabric
  • Adhesive spray
  • Interfacing
  • Embroidery machine
  • Hoop
  • Embroidery appliqué design
  • Embroidery scissors
Step 1: Place the interfacing into the hoop and spray the surface.
Step 2: Put the project or main fabric or paper on the sprayed interfacing over the hoop.
Step 3: Put the hoop into place on your embroidery machine and allow the appliqué to trace the design over the main fabric.
It is showing you where to place the scrap fabric for your appliqué.
Step 4: Smooth out the scrap piece of fabric over the project fabric. The embroidery machine will trace the design again.
Step 5: Now for the fun part. Take a small, sharp pair of embroidery scissors and cut away the excess fabric from the design.
Be careful and cut as close to the design stitches as possible without clipping the design.
Step 6: Place the hoop back on the embroidery machine and allow the machine to finish the appliqué design. Most appliqué designs have a zig zag stitch first and then a satin stitch.
This can be a great skill to have. Any store bought blanket, towel or tote can be made into a special semi-handmade gift.
Happy Stitching!
