Besides your embroidery machine and embroidery threads (either polyester or rayon), you will need the base fabric (on which you made the embroidery), the applique fabric (we recommend light-weight stretchy fabrics with lycra or jersey), Puffy Foam by Sulky (available either on Amazon.com, or in your local sewing shop).

Step One: Stabilize and hoop the base fabric. The type and weight of the stabilizer for the base fabric depends on your project and the weight of your base fabric. Start the machine, it will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Place a Puffy Foam sheet over the outline and start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the Puffy Foam and stop.

Step Three: Neatly remove the Puffy Foam around the outline and inside the motif as shown on the photo below.

Step Four: Cover the working field with a piece of stretchy fabric. (We used stretchy polyester velour with a knit base). Pin the applique fabric to the base fabric outside the embroidery field. Start the machine. It will embroider the outline over the applique fabric.

Step Five: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the applique fabric around the outline and inside the design (see photo below) as close to the stitches as possible. Take care not to cut through the stitches.

Step Six: Return the hoop to the machine and start the fourth color of the design. It will finish the raw edges. You will get a neat trapunto embroidery.
