This project is created using a sewing machine with an embroidery module, however, it can be made using following the steps for shadow applique using your own design.
8. Embroider shadow appliqué motifs on three batiste panels. Hoop the fourth panel, slide a piece of tear-away stabilizer under the hoop, and stitch an embellished monogram with Dual Duty XP Fine.
12. Pin two panels right sides together along their marked edges. Sew from the top edge to the upper mark, backstitching at both ends. Begin sewing again at the lower mark and finish stitching the side seam, backstitching at both ends. Press the seam open. Repeat to join the other two panels.
