I just LOVE this new collection I listed recently, “Popsicles & Pinwheels”. I used some awesome fabric from Riley Blake, from the Sweet Nothings line and So Happy Together line. I have a bit of a fabric obsession lately, I can’t stop buying it! LOL! I wanted to share some of the new designs from this line. All the designs can be purchased from my website at Hooked On Applique!
I am hooked on the Nautical theme right now! I just love the designs and colors! I listed a collection of cute Nautical themed designs recently after learning my Nephew’s room was Nautical themed. I created a collection of designs with him in mind! All the designs can be purchased from my website at Hooked On Applique. The designs are great for boys and girls, I made an adorable shirt for my daughter for Memorial Day with the nautical LOVE design from my site. Here are a few things I’ve created…..
I wanted to share how I clean my hoops.
I use Spray Goo Gone and some Dawn dish soap. I hope you find this tutorial helpful!
ITH Closet Dividers Instructions
*You can purchase these designs from my website Hooked On Applique*
I recommend using tearaway or heavy wash away stabilizer in your hoop, and layering a piece of stiff craft felt, batting or stiff interfacing under your fabric to keep the dividers stable.
1- hoop stabilizer, stitch placement stitch…
2- Lay down stiff felt/interfacing and your fabric, stich tackdown, trim edges…
3- Stitch wording, letters, ect as normal…
4- take your hoop off and turn hoop upside down, spray temp adhesive, layer your interfacing/felt and fabric (just as you did for the top), put hoop back on RIGHT side up (your fabric will be on the bottom)..
5- Stitch the tackdown again, this will secure the fabric for the backside of your divider, remove hoop and trim edges just as you did on the front.
This step allows you to have a nice clean front and back to your divider, the backside of the stitches for any wording are hidden.
6- Put matching thread in your bobbin, Stitch the finishing satin stitch…
You are all done! Enjoy! These make GREAT baby shower gifts!
Hello fellow crafters! Today i’m going to share with you how to create APPLIQUE’s with an embroidery machine. Applique is my favorite type of embroidery to do on my machine. I have a Singer Futura Quartet that I absolutely love! With APPLIQUE’s you use fabric as your fills in a design giving you endless possibilities to each design. I love fabric, so thats probably why I love applique so much, lol.. It also saves you on thread b/c majority of the design is covered with fabric. You can purchase applique design files online just like a regular embroidery design. Visit my website HookedOnApplique to purchase this Candle Numbers design set along with my other designs!
