Default Re: Trying to make an applique tshirt

If you don't want to do a tight zig-zag, satin stitch, then play around with it. When I do my appliques not on my embroidery machine I like to do a regular running stitch about 1/4 around the applique and then make the zig-zag up a wide stitch and stitch the outside with it. Or the blanket stitch always looks cute too! Or you can just do the running stitch and fray the edges of the letter.
I just read this to my mom and she said this all makes perfect sense!! Thanks so much!!
