This is what I will be busy with for the next few days....I have 50 of them to do.......at least I have a bunch of colors and the owner is letting me pick the thread.....I used the knockdown technique so I wouldn't have to use wss....

They look great. Sorry to be ignorant on this Vicki, but do you just sew ordinary sewing stitches roughly in the shape you are to sew or do you digitise the specific area where the design will eventually be? Love Chris

These look fantastic and you have done the knock down stitches beautifully. The only time I had a real success was on a whiite towel. I never have the exact colour when I want to use KD stitches. I also think that I make the KD stitches too big an area.
Great job Vicki.

Wonderful job! I have never tried knockdown stitches. Sure beats having to either pick out the wss or rinsing it out!

Pardon my ignorance but what is the knockdown technique?

You lay down a light underlayment matching the fabric by out lining the design you are stitching.....this keeps pokies from sticking through the stitches and you probably don't need to use wss…..

Isn't it great.....thank heavens I have colors of thread that match the hat....these are those sweater fabric hats and the stitches would have disappeared in it.....
