applique part 3

now the fun begins-machine stitching your appliqued pieces. i use a buttonhole stitch. you can use which ever fancy stitch your machine does. even a small narrow zigzag would be fine. you can see with just changing the stitch length how it changes the look for the buttonhole stitch

i like to use sulky thread-it has a bit of a sheen to it. if your fabric is thin, you may want to use a stabilizer behind on the reverse side. a piece of tracing or typing paper works fine and just tear it away when you are finished

i have all 4 squares done(took about 45minutes/square to do). i just might have a chance to start stitching them together tonight after the hockey game

    As for the readability of the font...it looks fine on my monitor (resolution is 1280 x 1024)

I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
