Learn a really easy way to do Madeira Applique and make setting snaps a breeze with the Snap Setter. FABRIC: ½ yd. (.5m) batiste ¼ yd.

NOTIONS: MACHINE ACCESSORIES: 1 pkg. Sulky Totally StableTM Schmetz 70 & 80 universal 505®Temporary Spray Adhesive needles Spray Starch Schmetz 110 universal or Blue water soluble marking pen 100 wing needle Snaps Husqvarna Viking Embroidery Snap SetterTM Card 1 Rajah Pressing Cloth 2 bobbins Glass head pins Edge Stitching foot (optional) Embroidery scissors 8" Gingher scissors Applique scissors (optional) Iron and ironing board Embroidery 1. Cut the batiste into three 14" squares. Double the size of the pattern and with the blue marking pen, trace the outline of the bib, marking the Madeira border and embroidery placement points on the right side of one piece of batiste. 2. Cut the organza into two 9" x 8" pieces. Hoop the 2 pieces of organza in the standard hoop of a Husqvarna Embroidery machine.
3. With the Husqvarna Viking Embroidery Card 1 (or design of your choice) stitch color 1 and 2 of the teddy bear design using the soft green rayon thread in the needle. DO NOT STITCH the color 3 outline. Trim all jump stitches. 4. Remove hoop from the Husqvarna Embroidery Machine, but DO NOT UNHOOP the organza. Lightly spray the wrong side of the marked batiste bib with 505 spray adhesive. Place the wrong side of the marked batiste on top of the hooped organza, aligning the blue placement marks with the raised hoop coordinates. Place the hoop back on your Husqvarna Embroidery Machine, and stitch color 3 outline. 5. Remove the hoop from the Husqvarna Embroidery Machine and trim the extra organza from the back leaving about an 1/8" of organza. Remove all extra pieces of thread from the back of the bib. Madeira Border 1. Trace the Madeira border onto the Totally Stable from the fold so you have half the bib and cut out the border. Fold another piece of batiste in half, right sides together and press the Totally Stable pattern for the Madeira border to the wrong side of one half of the folded batiste. 2. Using YLI dissolvable thread in both the needle and the bobbin, stitch along the inside border of the Totally Stable from fold to fold. Do not stitch around the outside of the pattern. 3. Remove the Totally Stable and trim ¼" away from the stitching line. Clip points and curves. Turn right side out. Finger press and carefully "poke" out the points. Press with a dry iron, keeping the seam line at the edge of the fabric. 4. Spritz with water to dissolve the thread. Open the piece and pin the Madeira Border to the right side of the embroidered bib front, aligning the border points with the blue marks. 5. Starch and press the bib front. 6. Put in the Schmetz 110 needle. Thread your Husqvarna Viking with white Sulky rayon in the needle, and Zwicky 60 wt. Cotton thread in the bobbin. 7. Select the Point de Paris or Pin Stitch with s.l. 2.5, s.w. 1.5 or 2.0. 8. Stitch the Madeira Border to the bib front, keeping the straight part of the Pin Stitch on the bib, letting the width part of the stitch swing in the Madeira border. Use the STOP button when approaching a point, to prevent "overshooting" the point. Pivot the fabric as you proceed. 9. Starch and press when finished. BIB CONSTRUCTION: 1. Use the bib pattern to cut out the third piece of batiste. Note that the right back neck tab is shorter than the left one. 2. Place the third piece of batiste, right sides together, with the bib. 3. Put the Schmetz 70 needle in the Husqvarna Viking. Use Zwicky 60 wt. cotton bobbin thread in both the needle and the bobbin. Select straight stitch in ¼" position. (SW 3.5) and use A foot. Stitch the bib back and front together, leaving a small opening on one back edge.
4. Press seam. Clip curves. Turn right sides out, smoothing out seam lines. Press. Stitch opening closed. Starch and press again. 5. Snap on edge stitching foot and select a straight stitch position to topstitch around outside edges. (D foot also works with needle just to the left of the center position.) Use Sulky rayon with thread in the needle and Zwicky thread in the bobbin. 6. Add a decorative row of baby daisy stitch around the inside neck edge. Use the clear B foot, large 110 needle or the wing needle. Select D9 SL 1.5, SW 4.5 HINT: I find this row of decorative daisy stitches hides uneven and clipped inner seams that might show through the sheer batiste. Personalize bib with baby's name and birth date using one of the programmable fonts and the soft green rayon used to stitch the teddy bear or add "With Love From Grandma" and the date. 7. Press bib. Attach domes and snaps to bib neck flaps, placing the dome on the longest neck tab.
