    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    The roosters are obviously appliqued. The bodies of each of the roosters can be appliqued using the stitch and trim method, but the portions of applique that are only outlined with E stitches need to be precut for accuracy. Therefore PDF patterns are attached for precutting the roosters. SVG and FCM files are also attached for those of you with electronic cutters. The pattern pieces in all formats have been enlarged 2% to ensure a good fit of your appliques. CS means color stop.


    Step 1:
    Cut your 2/3rds yard of linen into 3 15” x 22” pieces for the background of all the roosters; cut 6 sheets of fusible poly mesh stabilizer 15” x 22”; press your linen pieces with Magic Sizing and then fuse two sheets of stabilizer to the back of each piece of linen

    Step 2:
    Spray with Magic Sizing and press the applique fabrics 4 times.

    Step 3:
    Cut Heat n Bond Lite to match the size of your applique fabric and fuse to the back of each piece following the manufacturer’s instructions.

    Step 4:
    If using a Scan N Cut remove the paper backing from the applique pieces and smooth onto your mat with a brayer. If hand cutting the pieces, spray a little adhesive spray on the PDF paper templates and place on top of the materials and carefully cut out.

    Step 5:
    Cut the applique pieces. With a new blade in the Scan M Cut Turquoise blade holder; pressure 4; Cut speed 6; Blade depth 3.5 was used to cut these appliques.

    Step 6:
    Load Rooster RRAD01 into your machine. Some embroidery formats automatically rotate the design, some don’t. So if your design is not rotated so that the head of the rooster is to the right, please rotate the rooster in your machine. Fold your background fabric in half and finger crease in both vertical and horizontal directions to use in lining up your hoop in the fabric. Hoop the fabric tautly aligning the fabric creases with the hoop marks.


    Step 7:
    Run CS 1 to stitch feathery details.

    Step 14:
    CS 17 will be the outline for the feathers.


    Step 15:
    Fuse the feathers in place as in Step 9. There is no tack down stitch for this section of applique as the feathers are attached with an E stitch. This applique must be precut.

    Follow the balance of the color chart to complete the design.


    Step 19:
    Following the color charts for RRAD02 and RRAD03 stitch out the other two roosters using the same techniques for cutting the appliques and for stopping after each outline stitch to apply the appliques.
     


    Step 20:
    Remove the back inserts from the picture frames and remove the glass. Cut 3 foam board inserts with a box cutter the same size as the back insert of the picture frames.

    Step 21:

    Step 22:
    Trim 1” off the top and bottom of the background fabric just to remove excess for folding over the foam board.

    Step 23:
    Center one of the embroideries over the foam board placing the design so that the bottom of the embroidery is 3” above the bottom of the foam board; insert a straight pin into the bottom of the board to hold in place.

    Step 24:
    Smooth the embroidery over the top of the foam board inserting straight pins about ½” apart to hold the fabric in place. Put as much tension as you can on the fabric to smooth out any wrinkles. Repeat at top, bottom and both sides of the embroidery.

    Step 25:
    Do not try to miter the corners, it makes them too thick. Just fold them in straight in one direction and fold them over the top in the other direction. Use embroidery tape to cover all the raw edges if the fabric. Insert the pictures in to the frames and hold in place with the metal inserts that are part of the frame


    Step 26:
    Not wanting to have to attach paper to the back and a wire for hanging, I took the framed embroideries back to Hobby Lobby where they just charge a couple of dollars each to attach the paper backing and wire hangers.


    Step 27:
    Proudly display your triptych, your works of art, on a kitchen or dining room wall!
