Maderia Applique Embroidery Designs

Heirloom Embellishment Series 2 -  Madeira Applique Tutorial and Embroidery Designs

This collection includes 9 beautiful embroidery designs and features one of Hope's favorite heirloom techniques, Madeira Applique.

The Madeira Applique designs use a 100 wing needle to create a unique heirloom technique which has been recreated in the embroidery hoop. Some of the designs can also be used to create a “Reverse Shadow Applique”.  Some can be stitched out without using an overlay fabric to create pretty wing needle scallops. The cover showcases the Australian Windowpane technique which is detailed with step-by-step color photo instructions found on the “printable” PDF file included with the designs.

Hope includes full directions in .pdf format with color photos, showing you how to create your heirloom techniques in the hoop.  Click Here to see a sample page of the tutorial.
