How to Embroider an Applique Design by Sew With Lisa B


0 How to Embroider an Applique Design by Sew With Lisa BDemonstration – "How to Machine Embroider an Applique design" by Children's Embroidery Designer Lisa B. from Applique embroidery uses a combination of fabric and fill embroidery. You will need an embroidery machine, the fabric you wish to applique upon secured in a hoop, the threads, a pair of scissors and the fabric for the applique design. Download the digitized applique design to the embroidery machine and attach the hoop. Stitch the outline of the design. Place the fabric over the applique design outline and stitch the tack down stitch. Next, remove the hoop from the embroidery machine and trim off my excess fabric. I recommend using a pair of curved scissors to allow you to trim close to the thread without cutting it. Remember, never remove the fabric from the hoop until you are done, as this will affect the alignment of the applique design. Next, stitch final tack down stitch. Finish the design by stitching the fill embroidery portion. Change fill colors and stitch out the eye of the pig. When the sewing of the design is complete, remove the fabric from the hoop and trim the excess threads. The applique design is complete. For more visit

It mostly takes practice to get good at it. You can also stitch out the design on a separate piece of fabric and attach it to the onesie later using fuseable fabric adhesive. Hope this helps!

For this particular onesie I embroidered a patch and then sewed the patch on the onesie. I also hoop and embroider onto the actual onesie a lot of the time, it just depends on the design.
