Crocheted Lady Series


Hi everyone,

Just a note to let you know that there is a replacement design for download on the page describing the Crocheted Lady #1.

If you own the set and haven't sewn it yet, only the bottom half had the patterned edge on it.

Please discard the original design and replace it with this one.

I do apologize for any problems this may have caused.

For those of you who haven't purchased Crocheted Lady #1, Belle, this is a chance to try a sample of the set.
 

Method I use for Hooping


  1. Hoop a double layer of Aqua Magic nice and tight.
  2. Spray with KK2000
  3. Smooth the fabric you will be using to sew the design on into position on the Aqua Magic.

 

Threads you can use...


  1. Actually, both of the sew-outs I have pictured are sewn with a combination of these two threads.
  2. The weight of the thread makes the design stand up beautifully.
  3. You can sew it with 30 weight cotton or 30 weight rayon too.
  4. Just remember to put in a size 90/14 or a 100/16 topstitching needle and raise the upper tension a little to make the heavier thread sew better.
  5. And…DON’T FORGET TO CLIP YOUR THREADS BETWEEN COLORS.
  6. You will be thrilled with the results when you take this little extra bit of time.

Ways to Use the Design

Method #1

  1. The design can be sewn as a doily with a free standing edge...
  2. The first color is gray, You're not really meant to sew it with gray...
  3. It's just a way for the machine to stop so you can trim away the excess fabric.
  4. Put the color in that you will be sewing the entire edge with...
  5. After the machine stitches around 2 times, trim very close to the edge of the fabric and continue with the colors in the way that they are listed.
  6. When you are finished, wash out the stabilizer and use your “doily” as a gift for a friend…gather it in the center and hand tack it to a clip used for hair barrettes.

Method #2

  1. The design can be sewn as an applique...
  2. Hoop the fabric you are going to sew the appliqué to…this would be your garment, your pillowtop…etc.
  3. Lay the fabric you want to use as the appliqué on top of the hooped fabric.
  4. The first color is gray…you're not really meant to sew it with gray...it's just a way for the machine to stop so you can trim away the fabric.
  5. Put the color in that you will be sewing the entire edge with...
  6. After the machine stitches around 2 times and stops…
  7. Trim very close to the outside edge of the appliqué fabric and continue with the colors in the way that they are listed or your own chosen colors.

Method #3

  1. Use it as a design for a pillow front. 
  2. I sewed the design this way and when it finished sewing, I embroidered an initial in the center.
  3. Beautiful!
