For the project you will need:

  • Sulky Puffy Foam, 2mm thick (see https://www.sulky.com/puffyfoam/ ),
  • Quilter's tape,
  • Regular cotton fabric for the base,
  • Light-weight cotton (such as batist) for the top,
  • Light-weight tear-away stabilizer,
  • Rayon or polyester embroidery threads.
Use size 12/80 embroidery needle.

Step One: Upload any of the trapunto design into your machine.

Hoop the base fabric with stabilizer. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.
