Turn it inside out? You betcha!

Seriously, you turn your tee shirts and tote bags inside out to embroider?

Absolutely!

Some don't have the luxury of a professional six needle embroidery machine, or maybe you just prefer the sewing and embroidery combo that has a flat bed embroidery unit. Nothing wrong with that, but some items are just plain harder to hoop in these instances.

Small tees, totes, and other miscellaneous items can be easier handled if you turn them inside out. Jan Page shares an easy technique to solve embroidery on small pieces.  Click here to learn this technique.

Check out the tutorial video to see 3 Simple Ways to Applique!   Stephanie Struckmann will show you how to use this technique with an embroidery machine. Then, she will demonstrate the technique on a sewing machine with a knit fabric and a woven fabric. You'll also learn how to use Baby Lock's Fusible Applique paper to print your template on...it's seriously awesome! It makes life so much easier when appliqueing, and who doesn't love that?

Create a tablet case using a 12” x 18” piece of reinforced felt while using the Baby Lock Aventura built-in frames and font. Why stop with one when you can create one for every person in your life or any color of your choosing?
