    Final Product: What You Will Create
     


    Step 1:
    Create your applique pieces.

    You can create the applique a couple of different ways. If you have software you can print the dielines and create a template. If not, you could also hoop the applique fabric face up and then embroider the dieline directly on it. Then gently cut along the stitches.

    Step 2:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    First hoop 3 pieces of tear away backing in your hoop. Then sew the 1st color stop which is the dieline. (You can now use this as a template to cut both the front and back applique pieces if you want).


    Step 3:

    After the dieline has sewn, stop the machine and place the bottom front applique piece within the dielines. (If you are using your own fabric be sure to use an adhesive spray to keep the fabric in place).


    Step 4:

    Remove the hoop from your machine. Do not unhoop the design. Turn the hoop over so you are looking at the back of the design.


    Step 6:

    Now place the bottom back applique piece on the back of the design making sure that the applique piece is secure and will not fall off when you return the hoop to the machine. (Use spray adhesive if you are not using the PSA Twill).


    Step 7:

    Remove the design from the hoop and gently tear away the backing from the bookmark. You may need to trim away any excess backing or stray thread.


    Step 15:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    You will also need to remove the tear away backing just below the heart.


    Step 16:
    Fold the card in half along the bottom line shown in the picture. Measure about 3" above the bottom of the card. Then fold the heart back along the top line so it is facing up.


    Step 17:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    If you want you can cut a little heart out of the Velcro. Then remove the backing from one side and place it on the back of the heart. Then remove the backing from the other side and close the card. (Let the card sit with the Velcro together so that the Velcro adheres to the fabric).
