I am making a wallhanging for Halloween that is appliqued on the embroidery machine. This is a picture of the first two blocks. You hoop tear-away stabilizer and the background fabric. The machine stitches the placement of the applique and then you lay fabric on top of the stitching. It stitches it again and you closely (and carefully!) cut away the fabric at the stitching. Then it satin stitches around the applique. There is a little more to it but that is most of it. I think I am going to hunt a denim shirt to do these appliques on. I will post pictures of the other blocks as soon as I get them made. It is piddling work but they are sure cute when you get them done.
