Most of the designs in our collection have been made and remade over the years; proved and improved every time we discovered a better way. We are proud of the quality of our designs. They come with our full guarantee of your satisfaction:
ANY LITTLE PROBLEM , JUST SHOUT & WE'LL FIX IT !
QUALITY CONTROL
WE STRIVE FOR PERFECTION WITH EVERY DESIGN WE MAKE
 
APPLIQUE

....BECAUSE WE LOVE TO MAKE BIG COLOURFUL DESIGNS , ...AND WE DON'T HAVE ALL DAY TO DO IT !

To keep it simple we standardise our applique designs by maintaining strictly consistent parameters over the following elements :
 
DESIGN STRUCTURE

All our applique designs have 3 steps per layer of applique : Mark-out , Tack-down , and Satin Finish, with coloUr change stops in between each step. Simple applique instructions are included in the download pack.

TACK-DOWN STITCH

We employ a double running tackdown stitch so there is no problem if you trim too close and snip a stitch.

SATIN FINISHING STITCH

Satin stitch width ranges from 3.2 to 5.6 mm depending on the design size . This means you need to trim tighter on the 4×4 design than on the 6×8, but there is always enough width to cover the trimmed edge .

SMART ORDERING

As with all our embroidery designs , we manually order all design objects within the design . This helps maintain balance in stitch direction and avoid excessive compensation issues.

 

CUSTOM DESIGNS
Building BluCatRedDog has been an all consuming affair..... and we're only about half way done. We still have hundreds of designs not yet listed. For this reason we will not be accepting any more custom work until next year.

If, however, you are looking for a stock design that you don't see, do give us a shout.... We may well have it in the works.
