Love those large appliques in the hoop designs but nervous about the multiple hooping process? A quick and easy way to get more comfortable with these large designs is to do a practice stitch out without the applique elements. Simply stitch out the Placement Stitches and Alignment crosshairs, skipping the steps for Tack Down and Cover used for the Applique shapes. The result is an Outline stitch out with crosshairs and gaining the confidence of a new technique. Check out the short video below to show you how easy it is to a multiple hooping design.
