How do you make embroidery machine appliques for iron on patches? I bought a Singer Futura 150 sewing and embroidery machine and I have successfully created lots of embroidery designs onto items like shirts, towels, etc. But I want to know how to make a design so I can cut it out and use it as a iron on decal.
I'm familiar with the different stabilizers such as water soluble, which dissolves in water, the tear away kind and the stay on thicker kind. And all work well with the designs I put on these items. I know others create there own decals from their machines but I do not understand how it's done. What type fabric is used? What type of stabilizer is used? If using the water dissolving stabilizer does the stabilizer go on top while its embroidering on the design to be washed off later? And how do you cut out the finished design so that it looks professional when applied to other surfaces?
Well Julie if you find out Please let me know. I am surfing constantly for the same problem. itsretrotweety59 AT yahoo.com and I will email you as well.
Here ya go Julie, Floriani Press N Bond.
What is that becky? Is there a web site that tells about it? I guess not many people on here know much about using a machine and doing the appliqués. I finally joined a futura group that is SOMEWHAT helpful about it. here is the link if you want to join its free you just have to be moderated first then you can join it. I'm going to try it on bluejean fabric first they say do that then cut it out.
Besides doing a design on shirts or towels your just limited on things because you have other layers of fabric that get in the way. I tried taking say jean legs apart then after doing the design putting them back but its double trouble. So I hope to be able to do the appliqué patches to be able to use on more things like purses hats, etc. thanks Julie
