An Update to My First Share
I did update yesterdays post with the link.
To save you from having to go look for it, here it is.
The cut file (.fcm) for the Brother Scan N Cut can be downloaded here.
My original intention was that I wanted to make a small, simple embroidery design for those that wished to try “In the Hoop Applique” on their embroidery machines while also utilizing their Brother Scan N Cut machines.
At that time, my focus was on getting the cut file and the embroidery file to work with each other, and then I needed to figure out a way to easily share them.
Once the files were finally out there being shared, I got several requests from those that do not have the Scan N Cut, but do want to stitch the embroidery design.
Here is how I would recommend doing so.
- After hooping the main fabric, stitch Color Stop One (thread color #1).
- Lay the piece of applique fabric (with NO fusible applied) so that it generously covers the placement lines. I like to put a light coat of glue stick within the perimeter of the placement line before placing the applique fabric.
- Re-stitch Color Stop One (thread color #1) (This would normally be incorporated into the digitized design as it’s own color stop)
- Remove the hoop from the machine, but do NOT remove the fabric from the hoop.
- Carefully trim the excess fabric, outside of the placement line, close to the stitches.
- Return the hoop to the machine and continue on, starting with Color Stop 2 (thread color #1)
- Stitch Color Stop 3 (thread color #1)
- Stitch Color Stop 4 (thread color #2)
I hope that this information is helpful in encouraging you to try In the Hoop Applique.
My (still unquilted) Go! Be Dazzled quilt has LOTS of In the Hoop Applique.
