Further you can read some pretty helpful tips on how to place, hoop and stitch corner machine embroidery designs. We’ll be describing the entire process, taking as an example Hydrangea corner machine embroidery design and a cotton napkin. The info will help you avoid mistakes in the work, and hopefully turn the creative process into a pure artistic joy.
Few things that you’ll need to know before starting working with corner machine embroidery designs.
1 – Placement. Think through where you’re going to place a corner design. If you place it too close to the edges, there’s chance that your hoop will not be able to “catch” the embroidered-to-be item properly. Of course there’re ways to embroider without the hoop (floating technique), but still placement is the first thing to consider.
2 – Hooping. If you’re set on placing your corner design close to the edges, chances are that you won’t be able hoop your fabric properly. Don’t worry, you still will be able to embroider, but for that you’ll need to make some preparations for the item to fit into the hoop. Here’re some of the methods, used by embroiderers all over to overcome such a conundrum.
~ Floating technique. The embroidered-to-be item is attached to the hooped stabilizer. The design is stitched on the floating fabric (thus is the name of the technique).
~ Fabric extension. The embroidered-to-be item is “augmented” with pieces of random fabrics or stabilizers so that it becomes large enough to fit into the hoop properly. The augmented pieces either stitched or glued to the main fabric. After the embroidery is over, they are removed. Another variation of fabric extension is attaching (gluing) the textile piece to a bigger piece of stabilizer. The sandwich then hooped as usual with the stabilizer being the main carrier of the pressure from the hoop. If your machine has basting function you can use it for additional stabilization. The gluing agent in this case can be either temporary spray adhesive or the adhesive layer of the stabilizer itself.
Now let’s speak about details of our hydrangea corner machine embroidery design napkin project.
First of all let’s sort out our supplies. Machine Embroidery on table linens requires a pretty simple set of supplies. Most linen fabrics are stitched with 75/11 size of sharp embroidery needles. Usually any type of threads can be used. We used rayon threads (# 40). Stabilizers will largely depend on the quality of your napkin fabric. The looser the weave, the sturdier should be stabilization. Ideally, stabilization-wise, cut-away backing is what will help you get the most perfect results. However, not everyone is fond of the backside of the embroidery, when cut-away backing is used. To find a happy middle, we suggest using either medium-weight tear-away backing, or, even better, a water-soluble type of stabilizer. Additional stabilization (for the abovementioned problems with hooping) in the form of temporary spray adhesive or an adhesive layer of the stabilizer itself will also be needed. So, now that the supplies are all set, let’s move on to the instruction.
Yow to embroider a cotton napkin with Hydrangea design for Machine Embroidery.
1 – Print out a template of Hydrangea Corner Machine Embroidery Design and roughly cut out the outline of image. The template has pre-marked axis lines for easier design centering.
2 – Trace the pre-marked axis lines from the cut-out onto the corner of your napkin. Use temporary textile marker for the job.
3 – Hoop the stabilizer
4 – If you’re using self-adhesive stabilizer, remove the coverage; otherwise skip the step 4 and move on straight to step 5.
5 – Draw on the stabilizer two crossed axis lines (their coordinating marks are given on the band of the hoop). These lines will help you center the napkin in the hoop squarely.
6 – If you’re using a non-adhesive stabilizer, apply temporary spray adhesive onto the hooped baking.
7 – Smooth the embroidered-to-be area of the napkin onto the hooped stabilizer coordinating their axis lines.
8 – Embroider.
9 – After the embroidery is done, remove the excess backing, gently pulling it away from the stitching. You might want to hold the stitching with your fingers to prevent the fabric (and the stitches) from stretching too much. Remove loose thread ends too.
10 – If the marks from your temporary textile marker are still visible, give the napkin a gentle wash. Never iron the fabric with the marks from the marker being still on. Heat from the iron will make the marks permanent.
