|1. Print the pages of the Embroidery Layout PDF file. || |
|2. Tape the sheets together. Use the printed registration marks for accuracy.|| |
|3. Cut out the paper templates. Overlay the first one on top of the layout template. Tape it down with a little piece of blue painter's tape so it won't move.|| |
|4. This is a picture of the Skeleton Leaf template. There are arrows that point to the juncture location printed on the template. The
embroidery designs in the embroidery groups that I offer as Embroidery
Art Parts (such as the Skeleton Leaves) all come with digitized jump
stitches that exactly mark where the juncture of the embroidery design
Trim paper away from connection points so that you can see what you are doing when placing the next embroidery templates.
|6. Place the next templates onto the layout template, paying careful attention to the juncture areas. Tape all of the paper templates together.|| |
|7. Move the group of paper templates to your project. Pin and tape each template to the project. Remove the tape that holds them together as a group. || |
|8.Fold the other templates back so that you can embroider the first design. In the Skeleton Leaf group, the stems are always embroidered first. || |
|9. Stitch the first design. || |
|10. Fold the next template back into position so you can embroider it. Just after the basting rectangle is completed, the needle will jump to the first juncture stitch. Stop the machine A FEW STITCHES BEFORE the basting rectangle is completed and step it forward to this juncture stitch so that you can verify that the penetration point is exactly correct. Then step the stitching forward one stitch and verify the location of the second juncture stitch. Fine tune the location of these stitches if needed. Ask your embroidery machine dealer how to do this if you don't already know how. The basting rectangle will make this process very easy because it controls the location of your stitch out both vertically and horizontally. || |
|11. Stitch the second design. Fold the next template into position. || |
12. Embroider the last design. Admire your work!
