Embird Studio, Applique from Pre-cut Shapes & the Accuquilt Go Cutter

 

Embird Studio, Applique from Pre-cut Shapes & the Accuquilt Go Cutter

 

Do you love appliqué? Maybe you love appliqué but stitching the shapes at the sewing machine means that you need to be really accurate with your stitching. As you know this is a time consuming task.

Wouldn’t it be great to have the appliqué shapes stitch on your embroidery machine while you either watched the machine stitch or you did other sewing or another job?

In this latest lesson for creating appliqué objects in Embird Studio Carolyn takes you through opening an image accurately at the original size in Studio and then creating accurate appliqué shapes to stitch at your machine. You no longer need to place fabric squares and then trim after the tackdown stitches in the hoop in this lesson. Carolyn will show you an entirely different method.

You’ll have all the shapes cut beforehand and with your digitising skills in Studio you’ll create embroidery objects to match those shapes exactly. It’s quick and easy.

As well as showing you how to create accurate shapes and embroideries to match Carolyn also demonstrates the Accuquilt Go Cutter in this lesson - but the Go Cutter is not an essential accessory in order to use this lesson as Carolyn explains the same method when using appliqué shapes cut by hand.

The image below is a quilt from the PS I Love You book series that Carolyn made for her grandson. This quilt is easily replicated using the method taught in Carolyn’s latest lesson.


If you do use an Accuquilt cutter and dies then there is no longer any need to purchase pre-digitised designs for your shapes. You can make your own and personalise them whichever way suits the project that you’re working on, thus saving yourself money as well.

Save the shapes when completed and they’ll always be ready for future projects. They can be then edited, added to with shading etc. and made into fantastic new projects.

This is a fun way to create appliqué and you’ll be sure to wonder why you ever did appliqué any other way.

This Embird tutorial is a 25 page document in pdf format available for immediate download. You can also order it for use with PE-Design if you prefer.

 "Hi Carolyn,
I just looked at the costumes you made for your grandchildren and I am so impressed.  How lucky they are to have you for a grandmother.  A few years ago, I made the Dallas Cowboy's cheerleader outfit for one of my college age granddaughters.  I used the Embird Studio shapes to create embroideried stars.  I then appliques the stars to the vest.  It was quite realistic."
