    This is the placement for the panels that you have sewn out (You also have the same photo in your colour chart). You will notice I have also included panels for those who have a 360 x 200 hoop for the awnings and the base of the bag.

     

    Sewing out the New York Machine Embroidery Design Set

     

    First of all, do not look to closely as this work as they are my first stitch outs.

     TIP I always start to stitch about half an inch down from the top of the panels and then reverse back over the stitches to the top, that way you should not get any movement.

     

    Zig zag stitch the New York machine embroidery designs

     

    Zig zag stitch over the satin stitch border in the same colour thread as you stitched the satin stitch border. (I am showing the zig zag stitch in a white cotton so you can clearly see what I am doing.)

    At this stage you should put those magnetic catches to the lining of the bag, which I normally do. I forgot! I realised this when I had already stitched the lining to the bag. To compensate for this, I foraged through my mother's, grandmother's and auntie's collections of buttons and found this divine metal button. I stitched the button on and used a hair band to keep the bag closed.

    I Am Woman - Machine Embroidery Design Instructions

    Instructions for making the 4 small panels on a large panel

     

     

     

    I used the following for each of the panels
    • 2 very fine panels of wadding
    • Thick wool wadding
    • Thai silk
    • Silk organza
     
    I have no idea what you call this waxed type of paper with the sticky glue below the wax. I did purchase it from http://www.stirlingembroidery.com
     
    I hoop the wax paper
     
    Get a pin and go around as I have done in the following photographs
     
    Lift the wax paper away from you went around with the pin


     


    With your scissors cut away from the pin area as shown above
     
    After you have used the scissors
     
    Take the wax paper away from the sides
     
    This reveals sticky side around the hoop area


    Place your fabric over the sticky paper inside your hoop


    The silk is now ready for you to put onto your machine
     
     
     
    Place your stabilizers underneath the hoop


     
     
    Place the silk organza on top of the silk

    I use silk organza often and I keep many shades of the very fine silk organza in my stash

    TIP

    Why I like to have many different colour's of the silk organza is for the reason why I am using it to do this work. The bright pink Thai silk that I had selected for "I am Woman" was just to bright for the patterned Thai silk background so I used the silk organza which matched the patterned Thai silk beautifully. You might keep this in mind when next time you just cannot match up with another fabric
     
    Stitched out


    Cut away as much as you can all your stabilizer
     
    I purchased from the $2.00 shop the canvas
     
    Before laying the Thai silk on the canvas I sprayed glued the canvas and put thick wadding over the the canvas
    I framed the canvas with each of the designs using a staple gun
     
    Framed
     
    On the main canvas board I also spayed glue on the canvas and put thick wadding over the top of the canvas
     
    I used a staple gun to frame the Thai silk over the canvas
     
    To get an exact place to staple each of the four panels I used pins. I placed pins around each of the panels which goes through to the other side of the main canvas
     
    Showing you the back of the canvas with all the placement pins
     
    All four panels placed with pins.

    I then turned the main canvas over and then started madly stapling using the staple gun
