Let me explain: When you are embroidering on a perfectly flat garment you can usually either measure for positioning designs, or try on the garment and audition a printed template to visualize the placement. However, the wrap on this style means it conforms to the body form or "person" wearing it. To really judge perfect placement the garment needs to be almost entirely constructed prior to embroidery. That's where "off site" embroidery becomes the solution. It is basically a form of appliqué, made with the Brother Appliqué Creator. Did you know that many Brother machine models have this feature built in to the embroidery mode? It's a favorite feature I use on a frequent basis. It is so easy to do with so many possibilities! Check out the magazine article for full details. This article is full of tip boxes that will help you on your quest for successful sewing and embroidery.
