Besides embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), you will need

  • light- to medium-weight tear-away stabilizer,
  • Puffy Foam by Sulky,
  • a piece of stretching fabric for the top,
  • a piece of light-weight polyester leatherette fabric for the lining,
  • rhinestones and beads for decorating the crown,
  • glue to attach the rhinestones (altenatively you can sew them on)

Emboridery

Step One: Hoop tear-away stabilizer. Start the machine. The first color will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Place a piece of Puffy Foam on the outline and start the machine. It will embroider the same outline and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine, cover the back of the hoop with a piece of leatherette. Pin it in place from the right side outside the embroidery. Return the hoop to the machine and start it.
