Heirloom Embellishments Volume 6
Embroidery Collection $45.00
CD Includes: 25 embroidery files; 16 Madeira applique designs and 9 lace embroidery designs.
In-The-Hoop Madeira designs can be used in a variety of ways from traditional turned under edge borders, using water-soluble thread, to large windowpane openings created on the fold. Complete directions are included in a PDF file allowing you to create perfectly shaped Madeira techniques with the aide of your embroidery machine (no more tracing lines on the fabric!) 5 In-The-Hoop lace shaping files are designed to use with English Cotton Netting and 2 large shadow applique designs with pretty floral center options.
In-The-Hoop Madeira Windowpane openings are created on fabric using Sulky® Ultra Solvy™. One of the hardest parts of creating intricately shaped Madeira borders is tracing the borders onto fabric and then trying to keep your stitches exactly over the drawn lines. Creating in the hoop borders are easy since the embroidery machine eliminates the need for tracing and embroiders the neatest border you have ever seen! This means you can achieve beautiful borders on opaque fabric as shown by the black polka dot purse sample.
Please Note: No projects are included with this collection. The Madeira borders are meant to create pretty shaped borders for your project, whether it is an heirloom project or a quilted block with a border. Think of them as “digital” templates that eliminate the need for tracing. We give you directions for creating In-The-Hoop Madeira borders and you use your imagination to make them into something beautiful!
