This was a fun project to work on! It’s so creative, and the sky’s the limit!!
In the first video, we created an applique design from an existing design on the Dream Machine – we did some outlines and some satin stitches offset so we don’t cover up the beautiful embroidery AND we put it all together in the correct order. Once we finished this part, we set up the applique to send to the Scan N Cut DX225 cutter! We added a bit of extra space around the design – which turned out to be too much space, LOL) and cut the fabric. We used the special thin fabric blade and cut it perfectly! I also did an experiment with the new GudyStic temporary adhesive that I love so much – and I got decent results – but I will be working with it more to come up with some better ideas.
In Part 4, the video below, we take all of our applique design components – the placement stitch, the tack down stitch and the satin stitch for the applique as well as the original design plus the pre-cut applique pieces and put it all together at McDreamy (my Dream Machine 2). Watch the video and see what you can accomplish with a little bit of imagination and embroidery technology!!
Learn. Stitch. Smile
Be confident in every stitch!!
