You will need fabric, water soluble mesh and embroidery threads. 40-weight embroidery polyester threads are preferred for the project.
Cotton thread is not suitable because the embroidery will be too bulky.
Rayon thread is sensitive to the chemicals in the water-soluble mesh and will not work for the project.

Please note: ALWAYS make a test stitch-out on scrap before you make a stitch-out on the real item.

The Butterfly

Step One: Hoop fabric with a layer of water soluble mesh. Start the machine. It will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture. Take care not to cut through the stabilizer and stitches.
