Some Notes About Our Embroideries
All of our embroideries have several layers.
The layer underneath the embroidery is called stabiliser and that is exactly what it does, it stabilises the fabric whilst it is being sewn. Depending on the garment you have chosen you may be able to see the back of the embroidery, if so you may see that some of the stabiliser is still attached, don't worry this will not effect the embroidery in use.
We also use topping fabric, this gives the embroidery a neater finish and prevents fibres showing through the embroidery if the fabric being embroidered has a pile (like fleece and Minkee). The topping fabric looks a little like cling film, sometimes small bits of topping will be visible in small corners of your embroidery or under layers where there are wide stitches with gaps. This topping fabric is water soluble, so it will disappear when the garment is washed, or if you wish you can remove it using a damp cloth.
For applique designs, the finished design will look different to the one in the sample photo, although we will of course attempt to make as close a match as possible if you want a particular look. The sample photo is from the designers website and our fabrics will not be exactly the same. If you have a preference for individual colours or fabrics you would like included in your chosen applique design, please indicate your preference in the special instructions box (when you complete checkout). If for instance, you would like pastel colour or bright colours, please indicate your preferences in the same way.
Finally of course if you have any questions or need any more information on embroideries of appliques, just drop us a line at the usual email address and we will come back to you ASAP.
