Reverse cutwork is unique in that it starts out like regular cutwork, but then appliqué fabric is added to the back of the hoop. Satin and bean stitches are added to secure and emphasize the designs. This collection creates a gorgeous combination project that combines two fabrics for maximum effect. Each block is quarter-turned and then joined into a group of four to form a gorgeous cutwork pillow.
These twelve designs are specially digitized to be compatible with an embroidery machine cutwork needle, so you won’t have to lift a finger to cut the fabric! We teach you exactly how to use this exciting tool. If you prefer not to use a cutwork needle, the design can easily be trimmed by hand with appliqué scissors; our step-by-step tutorial will show you both methods.
