How do I sew an applique?
- Cut out the applique, leaving a seam allowance of between 3 and 5 mm (1/8 and 3/16 inch).
- Place a pattern made of thick paper or stabilizer on the back of the applique, and then fold over the seam allowance using an iron.
- Turn the fabric over, and then baste or fuse it onto the fabric that it will be attached to.
- Attach zigzag foot "J".
- Select a stitch.(ex. , )
- Turn the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise), and then begin sewing around the edge of the applique, making sure that the needle drops just outside of the applique.
When sewing around corners, stop the machine with the needle in the fabric just outside of the applique, raise the presser foot lever, and then turn the fabric as needed to change the sewing direction.
