Appliqué adds beauty and interest to clothing and household linens. You can create your own
design, trace a simple outline from a colouring book, or use a motif cut from a printed fabric.

Fabrics of similar or different textures combine equally well.

A closely spaced plain zig-zag stitch is used for appliqué work. Although you may vary stitch

width to accommodate fabric weave and texture, never allow the stitch to be too wide.

Make a test sample to help you decide which of the following methods is best for your fabric

and design.

• Pattern Group Selector; /

• Needle Position: i. ij.! J.i

• Stitch Width; To suit fabric

• Stitch Length; Between 0 and 1

• General Purpose Needle Plate

• Special Purpose Foot


• Baste appliqué design to fabric and outline

the design with a short straight stitch.

• Remove basting and press.

Method 1 - Trimming after Stitching

• Set machine as code recommends.

• Outline the entire design with appliqué


• Cut away the fabric or the outer edges of

the stitching with embroidery scissors.

Method 2 - Stitching after Trimming

• Trim outside fabric edges close to straight

stitch outline of design.

• Set machine as code recommends.

• Overedge the design with appliqué stitching.

This step will produce a smooth, lustrous

finish that requires no additional trimming.
