For giving garments and linens a per­

sonalized touch, first transfer the design
to the right side of the fabric. An
embroidery hoop is recommended es­
pecially for soft fabrics and toweling.

In order to monogram, you must move

the fabric slowly and run the machine

rapidly. Monogramming is like writing by
moving the paper under a stationary pen.
Guide the fabric slowly so that the zigzag

falls close together like a satin stitch, but
be careful that the stitches do not pile up.
When guiding from side to side, mov§,
fabric slightly faster to avoid a heavy

Practice by forming loops. Once this is
accomplished any letter is easy.
Sometimes the use of paper or non-woven

interfacing under the fabric may make

guiding the fabric easier. The paper or
interfacing may be torn or cut away at
the completion of the monograrn.When
monogramming towels, plastic film plac­
ed on the top will help cover lc|pp^and
make the monogram smooth. BilH 'br cut

scraps to household articles and clothing

is a very interesting way of trimming an

otherwise plain article. First, trace the
design on fabric to be appliqued, or
patched then pin or baste it securely in
place on garment. With a small straight
stitch or narrow zigzag, sew around the
transferred design or patch.

After excess fabric is trimmed away, sew
around the applique or patch with a satin
stitch or short length zigzag stitch. For a
smooth curve, stop frequently at the

inside edge of the curve to pivot the

fabric slightly. Corners look much better
when the point is stitched by pivoting

rather than just turned.

As with all decorative stitches, paper may
be used to give more body to the fabric
when stitching and can be torn away
when the applique is completed.
