  1. using templates for dresden plate, am i doing it wrong

    by , 05-15-2014 at 05:50 AM
    I am making a Dresden plate, but I think I may have used the template wrong. Does it make a difference if I use it frontwards, backwards, right side of fabric, wrong side of fabric. My wedges are all different, with different angles. I cut the fabric while it was folded, trying to get 2 wedges for one cut, may be an oops.

    I have a pfaff performance 5.0, today I went to use the lettering and fancy stitching, they come up on the screen but when I go to sew it starts but then goes it seems like it goes into darning mode. The letter will partly form and then it fills in with the darning stitch. Same thing happens with the fancy stitches. Anyone else have this problem with this machine.

    I used the Frixion gel pens that disappear when heat is applied. I also use them to trace the turned edge of the appliqué pieces as they come in different colors that are useful for dark fabrics.
