Appliqué Your Knits With Machine Embroidery

Explore various appliqué styles and discover an array of innovative techniques guided by designer Lisa Archer. Create a chic knit skirt as Lisa walks you through choosing the best materials as well as stabilizing and prepping your fabrics. Dive into reverse appliqué with a trendy infinity scarf, and learn how to trim away the interior shape without nicking the appliqué fabric. Customize a split appliqué with a name or phrase of your choice — the options are endless! Add a pocket appliqué to a child’s shirt, and make an adorable in-the-hoop monster to pair it with. Finally, create a colorful t-shirt quilt, and use part of a design file to do the quilting, too. Conquer knit fabric and add another dimension of style to gifts and apparel with raw-edge, reverse, split and pocket appliqué!
