Infographic: Satin Stitch Applique

It’s infographic time again! I feel like a lot of my topics have been leading up to this one, since it is a slightly more advanced technique. Satin stitching is one of those techniques that is mostly about practice. Once you’re sure your machine can do the stitch, you just need to get used to the feel of it in your hands and you’ll get better. So don’t feel too upset if it’s not perfect the first time.
I personally love it a lot since you can get embroidery machine-quality results while using a regular machine. It’s like regular fusible web applique but taken up a few notches with the addition of stabilizer and some other tweaks to your machine.
If you want to give it a try, I definitely suggest testing it first on scrap fabric. Maybe even try just doing straight lines first to see if your machine can handle it.
I hope this helps some people!

  1. What kind of stabilizer do you recommend? I don’t mean brand, I mean the actual type. There are tons of stabilizers at my craft store and I can’t tell which is for what.

  2. I’m new when it comes to embroidering and I’m having a hard time decide on an embroidery machine that is good without breaking the bank. I already have a sewing machine so what embroidery machine would you recommend a beginner to someone who wants to make their own custom pattern?

    1. Hello! For new embroiderers, something in the Brother brand is usually recommended 🙂 Something like the SE600 or PE800. Making your own embroidery designs takes all new software in addition to the machine, however :/ Many people recommend Embird or Stitch Era Universal for beginners. They at least have free demos you can try so it will help you decide before you buy.
