I decided to use my old Bias Bars to make a 3/8" vine. So the pattern says to cut bias at 1-1/8" and sew a 1/8" seam with wrong sides together. I wasn't sure how I was going to do that... Is there such a thing as an 1/8" foot? After looking at a couple of the feet that came with the Brother, I noted red marks on the open foot. Sure enough it's exactly 1/8" from the center. I sewed my small seam...
I inserted the bias bar, rotated a bit so the seam is facing upward. Then I press it down. Removed the bias bar, and pressed in a curve. Now I'm ready to applique!
Oops, not quite yet. Of the many styles of applique stitches, I had to chose which one I'd use. I tested a few, and chose this fine stitch and practiced with white thread. It's so hard to see the invisible thread :).
With my sample done, and all the settings locked in the Brother's memory, I'm ready to stitch - tomorrow that is.
