You will need
Step One: Stabilize the base fabric and hoop it. Upload the file into your machine.
Start the machine. The first color will embroider the outline of the design on the base fabric.
Step Two: Cover the outline with the stabilized applique fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the applique fabric.
Step Three: 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.
Step Four: The next color will embroider the center of the mandala. You have 2 choices here - you can either cut away the fabric from the center or leave it there.
Step Four: This color embroiders the mandala motif. Choose a color appropriate for your project.
Step Five: The last color embroiders the rooster. Again, you can choose any color you like, or omit this step.
