Applique Problem

stitcheasy2003October 12, 2006


I would like to know what to do. I have put an applique design on a top and I have notice and with other applique designs that the ends come unglued and curl up. I thought of doing a satin stitch but this design has small end pieces across the top of it. What can you use so the ends don't come undone? Any ideas Thank you .

Are you saying that you made an appliqué then glued it to the top? I think the solution would be to appliqué directly onto the garment.

Pull the thread tails underneath and tie off to secure the ends. These are probably jump stitches.

if you are not going to satin stitch, at least do a top stitch, applique isn't a glue project, it's sewing.
