Types of embroidery

Posted by the_sewingshop@yahoo.com on February 19, 2017 at 8:40 PM


For most people when they think of embroidery all they can picture is a 3 letter monogram or a small baby name on a blanket or something along those lines. I am here to tell you there is WAY more to embrodiery and sewing then just simple names and monograms. At The 1 Sewing Center we have embroidered on everything from a piece of toilet paper to a carhart boot, and everything in between, literally. From baby bags to biker patches. From buisness shirts to bridal parties. Ok, you get the point. Not only can you embroidery on a variety of different items, but there is also different types of embroidery that you can choose from.

Here is a list of the most popular types of designs:

3-D: A stand-alone design created by stitching on a water soluble stabilizer, that is stitched to the project after the embroidery is completed creating a 3-D apperance. 

3-D PUFFY FOAM3D foam (3D Puff) is a technique where foam is inserted under the top stitch to raise the surface, giving a three-dimensional look to your embroidery designs.The 3D foam effect is commonly used on garments that don’t require much washing. Apparel like caps, jackets and other outerwear are pieces that are best suited for this technique.



APPLIQUE: A 3 step embroidery design where fabric is abhered to stabilizer or another piece of fabric during embroidery.

CUTWORK: A design that features cutaway portions to reveal openings that either remain free or are filled with a contrasted or matching fabric. 

FREE STANDING LACE: Stand alone embroidery designs that mimic the look of lace and are embrodiered on water soluble stabilizer. You could also use to make book marks, earrings, or Christmas ornaments.

LINE ART: Simple outline designs that typically use one thread and are less dense than designs that are filled in. 

QUILTING: Embroidery designs used for quilt blocks, quilting, or securing quilt layers.

Thanks for helping me learn more about embroidery. I had no idea that applique is 3 steps where fabric is used. I'm interested to learn if any fabric can be used with this type of embroidery or if it needs to be of a certain material. http://www.candeprint.com/services
