Applique Alley is going FONT CRAZY

It’s true that we haven’t had many fonts on our website in the past.  However, thanks to this little lady we all lovingly call “Little Emily”, we are going a little crazy with the font cuteness. (Yes, my name is Emily, too.  I have been dubbed “OG Emily” to prevent from becoming “BIG EMILY”.  I wasn’t a fan of that.)

Emily started digitizing for Applique Alley several months ago.  Then, one day, she just started busting out the cutest fonts you’ve ever seen!

Vintage, Satin, Zig Zag, Sketchy… we’ve got them all!  Having years of embroidery experience under her belt, Emily knew just what each letter needed to be to maximize the fit on every item!

Sugar Cakes has been such a huge success, that she created multiple stitch finishes for every need.

After Sugar Cakes, came SO JELLY…

Then…. SQUISHY SUMMER … IN. LOVE. WITH. THIS!!! (it comes in zig zag & vintage!)

Next up… Alley Sribble!  Doesn’t that sound like a fun dance?!?  That’s just what fabulousness in a font makes me want to do!

Stitch the Placement for the Whale.

Cover with fabric for whale and stitch the whale tack down.  You will be covering the fabric for the heart but we will take care of that soon!  Cut around the whale tack down.

Now the zig zag tack down will stitch.

Stitch the heart.  You will cut INSIDE This stitch.  DO NOT iron over your applique to adhere your heat n bond lite until you cut the heart out.

Photo May 28, 10 25 17 PM

I use the tip of my applique scissors to poke a tiny hole before cutting inside the stitches.  Then just cut around the inside of the heart, leaving just a bit of fabric on the inside.  See pictures below.

Photo May 28, 10 25 40 PM

Notice how I left a little blue fabric on the inside of the heart.

See that wasn’t so scary!  That’s all a reverse applique is!

Now you may iron over your fabric to adhere it with the heat n bond lite to the shirt.  Please excuse my dirty iron!  haha.  It is well loved!

Stitch the satin stitch for the whale and that’s it!
