Winter-Themed Snowman Sweatshirts

With the help of the applique designs from the Snowman Set we made winter-themed sweatshirts for the whole family. We chose sweatshirts in Christmas colors, but other colors like blue, black and gray will work as well.

You will need

  • blank sweatshirts in the right colors and sizes,
  • light-weight iron-on cut-away stabilizer,
  • small embellishments, like winter-themed buttons, beads or crystals (optional)


VERY IMPORTANT: Please note that it's important that the sweatshirt is supported during the embroidery process. The machine should stand, for example, on a large table and the sweatshirt should not hang down, but be supported by the table. Otherwise, the weight of the sweatshirt will pull the hoop of your machine out of position and ruin the embroidery. You can even damage the carriage of your machine.

Press the sweatshirt.

On your computer, open the design you're going to embroider in your embroidery software. Print out a template of the design and cut it out.

If you do not have embroidery software, you can make an approximate template by cutting out a rectangle of the size of the design.

Using the paper templates, choose the position of the embroidery on the sweatshirt.

Stabilize the sweatshirts (base fabric) with light-weight iron-on cut-away stabilizer. Stabilize the applique fabric with the same stabilizer.

Embroider the design following the applique instructions.
