Embroidery

Step One: Hoop the base fabric with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Upload the file. Start the machine. The first color will embroider the outline of two leaves.


Step Two: Place a piece of green fabric over the outline.
Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline and leaf veins over the fabric.

With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric around the outline as close to the stitches as possible. Take care not to cut through the stitches.


Start Three: Return the hoop to the machine, it will finish the raw edges of the leaves.


Step Four: Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to embroider all leaves. You can use the same green fabric or use shades of green fabric.
Colors 4 and 7 embroider the outlines. Colors 5 and 8 embroider the same outlines and leaf veins over the fabric. Colors 6 and 9 finish the raw edges of the leaves.


Step Five: Color 10 marks the position of the outer petals of the poinsettia flower. Cover the outline with a piece of red fabric and start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the fabric (color 11).

Step Six: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the outline as close to the stitches as possible.


Step Seven: Start the machine, color 12 will finish the raw edges of the outer petals.

Step Eight: Color 13 will mark the position of the inner circle of petals. Cover it with a piece of red fabric (preferably of another shade) and color 14 will embroider the same outline and petal veins over the fabric.

Step Nine: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the outline.


Step Ten: The next color (15) will finish the raw edges of the inner petals.

Step Eleven: The last color will embroider the center of the flower.

Happy Embroidering!
