This fun, floral applique embroidery design is more than cute, with its positive and lovely sentiment spelled out in stitches! Customizing this quirky watering can is a wonderful way to turn your favorite fabric scrap into something special with little more than thread in coordinating colors. What a great way to make your fabric go further and bust that scrap stash!

This design is set up for applique, with the position and material stitch settings ready to use. That said, we want to share a time saving shortcut that you can use with any applique design! Right click on the color chip for the placement or material stitch on any applique design and you’ll find that you can assign it the proper step of the applique process without having to go to the applique properties tab!

Why should you assign these stitches to their ‘job’ in the applique process? With Embrilliance Essentials, these settings allow you to to create cut files for electronic cutting machines as well as perform stitch removing functions when you overlap multiple designs!
