Sew out Example
**Colors # 1, 2, & 3 are the flowers. Sew as usual.
**Color #4 is the guide stitching to show you where to place the pocket fabric.
It is best to use the same color thread as the fabric you are sewing the design onto.
**Prepare the pocket fabric:
You can use a piece of "pocket" fabric that you have sewn the top hem edge on
previously, OR you can just turn down the raw edge of the fabric 2 times so that
the raw edge is totally enclosed. I recommend a one inch wide "turn down" for the
upper edge of the pocket. The top edge of the pocket should be on the straight
grain of the fabric, NOT the bias.
Then place that turned down fabric pocket piece face up onto the guide line of
sewing and make sure that the top edge of the fold is right at the guide stitching.
I use a spritz of embroidery spray adhesive to help me keep the fabric in the proper
position. It is also wise to pin the piece in place......make sure to avoid the area that
the needle will sew. The pocket should be sitting right at the sewn guide stitches
on the top edge.
**Color #5 is the tack down for the fabric for the pocket. Use the color thread that
you will be sewing the final # 6 satin stitch with....they should match in color.
**After the fabric is sewn down, remove the hoop from the machine and trim the
excess pocket fabric away, cutting very close to the tack down stitching. Then put
the hoop back into the machine.
**Color #6 is the final satin stitch that will put the finishing touch on your pocket.
