A Practical Guide to Machine Appliqué

by Flossie Teacakes

The eBook covers:
• How to appliqué using different stitches: starting with a basic straight stitch; followed by a zigzag stitch; and finally a dense satin stitch (demonstrating different width stitches for the latter two)
• Suggested machine settings (including tension) for each of the above stitches
• Troubleshooting photos to help you achieve a good finish for the slightly trickier satin stitch which can be hard to execute perfectly on non-digital machines
• Two ways of stabilising your fabric to give a perfectly smooth finish to your appliqué
• How to use fusible web to keep your appliqué pieces exactly where you want them as you sew
• Appliquéing using a template
• Appliquéing using a flower or shape cut directly from a piece of fabric
• How to deal with mirror images if you choose to appliqué letters or numbers
• Specialist machine feet for the appliqué enthusiast
• How to guide the fabric as you sew
• How to secure your stitches without them being visible
• Techniques for neatly negotiating convex and concave curves when using a zigzag or satin stitch
• How to create order when creating an appliqué made of many small pieces
• Two basic shape templates are included which you may print out to practise on if you wish
• Every aspect is fully illustrated with diagrams and photographs
• It assumes you are using a basic sewing machine, so no fancy electronics are required for any of the stitches (although lucky you if you have them!)
