Embroidery Applique With heat-transfer vinyl

Did you know that most varieties of iron-only vinyl (the types you use with cutting machines) can be used as applique "fabric" with an embroidery machine?

What's even better, is you don't have to pre-cut it.  Just tear it off after embroidering your applique's final border stitch.

Here's an overview of some of the steps.

1. Stitch Placement Line

2. Place HTV

3. Stitch Tacking Line

4. Add Border Stitch
