Brand new Embroidery designs are being released today for Fake Fur. I know you might not want to think about it, but Christmas is really close. For those in the decorating world, our season is already underway. Stockings and Santa Hats are a big part of this time of year and fake fur will surely be at least one item you might be asked to embroider.
The Fake Fur Underlay design pack includes six different sizes you can place on your fake fur item and then add additional embroidery right over it. This will keep the fur pile laying down so your embroidery doesn't get swallowed up. Another name you may have heard this called is a "Knockdown Stitch" I like to call it a global underlay because that is a great way to think about it. It is essentially a light density fill underlay that covers the "global size of the design" Stabilizer is a matter of choice when using these designs. If your fake fur is very stable and you have a Mighty Hoop, you may not even need stabilizer. It is best to make samples before you try the designs on Client items. Fake fur differs between manufacturers. If you feel a stabilizer is needed or you are floating the items, tearaway can be used or sticky stabilizer for hard to hoop items.
Each design in the Fake Fur Underlay pack is going to have a height slightly larger than 2 inches. In researching Christmas Stockings and Santa Hats, the 2- 3 inch cuff is pretty common, so each design should fit well within that standard height. The widths will vary from 3 to 8.25 inches. So you should be able to find a global underlay design in this pack that will work for you as long as it will fit your hoop and the item to be embroidered on. Don't forget you can take seams out of items, do the embroidery and then re sew the seams. This is a common practice on things that are too tight to get in your hoop or over the arm of your embroidery machine.
As a bonus, the Christmas Text Design above is included in the download also. So are you ready to get started on your seasonal embroidery? I have a video below you can watch that shows how the designs will stitch out. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
