Double Applique Toledo In The Hoop Eyeglass Case

January 01, 2020 2 Comments

an Easy Way to do Double Applique on your embroidery machine

Double Applique is super Easy and Fun. Use 2 different colors of fabric to Create Beautiful projects. We used ONLY White and Blue Fabric and Blue and White Embroidery Thread...keeping it simple with Great results!

 

To make a 5*7 Eyeglass Case you need:

  • Sharp point Scissors
  • Embroidery Thread (we used blue and white)
  • Cut-away stabilizer (7” x 9”) / or use water-soluble stabilizer to avoid any whiskers in your satin outline
  • Batting: Thin layer (6” x 8”)
  • Front Fabric 1 (we used white) (6” x 8”)
  • Front Fabric 2 (we used plain blue) (6” x 8”)
*******************************
  • Lining Fabric (we used plain blue) (6” x 8”)

 *******************************

  • Back Fabric 1 (we used blue striped fabric) (6” x 8”)
  • Batting: Thin layer (6” x 8”)
  • Back Fabric 2 (we used plain blue fabric) (6” x 8”)

Steps:

Step 1. Start by hooping your stabilizer. Stitch out the 1st color stop. 

  • Place 1 x layer of BATTING+FRONT FABRIC 1 on top of the OUTLINE. Use embroidery adhesive spray to keep the fabric in place while stitching.

Step 2. Stitch the next color stop. The FRONT FABRIC 1 will now be secured in the hoop.

Step 3. Stitch the next color stop. 

Place FRONT FABRIC 2 on top of the OUTLINE. Use embroidery adhesive spray to keep the fabric in place while stitching.

Step 4. Stitch the next color stop. The FRONT FABRIC 2 will now be secured in the hoop.

Cut away the areas as shown in the image below.

Step 5 through 9. Continue with the color chart (see image above).

Step 10. LINING - with adhesive spray add the LINING FABRIC to the back of the hoop, then stitch next COLOR STOP, where the lining will be secured. 

After the LINING is stitched, remove the hoop, cut away excess lining (from the back) and excess fabric/batting (from the front). 

Place hoop back for next COLOR STOP.

Step 11. This is a running stitch simply to indicate where a satin outline will stitch next.

Step 12. A Satin Outline will cover the INNER section.

Step 13. A wider running stitch will show where the next fabric should be placed.

Step 14. Add BACK FABRIC 1+BATTING+BACK FABRIC 2 to the back of the hoop. (In other words, the batting will be sandwiched between the 2 layers of fabric.) Remember to use matching top and bobbin thread to ensure a neat satin outline.

The next COLOR STOP will stitch the FABRIC+BATTING+FABRIC. After the fabric is stitched, remove the hoop, cut away excess FABRIC+BATTING+FABRIC and place hoop back for the FINAL SATIN OUTLINE.

Step 15. FINAL SATIN OUTLINE will stitch.

Remove design from hoop. Cut away the stabilizer and remove the small piece of stabilizer between the 2 satin outlines.

Your IN THE HOOP project is complete!

TIP: We use a soft vilene type cut-away stabilizer for In-The-Hoop Projects. If you find that cutting too close to the satin outline, risks cutting the satin stitching - then you can also use water-soluble stabilizer and after the project is done, run a wet Q-tip along the satin outline to remove any visible whiskers.
