VIDEO: How to Applique a Luxe Cuddle® Throw (& Free Luxe Throw Pattern)

Season 9 of Sew Together Tuesday rolls on! Last week our National Educator Teresa Coates shared her tips about how to use embroidery to monogram a throw (learn more, here), and this week she’s sharing a variation by appliquéing Luxe Cuddle® to create a throw for your favorite college student, sports fan, teen or anyone else.

These techniques work for a variety of larger appliqué designs — add a name, a silhouette or your own design. For more information, our “Embroidery and Applique Tips for Cuddle® Minky Plush Fabric” article is a great place to start!

Class is in session, happy sewing!
