You will need

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon),
  • base fabric (the fabric on witch you embroider the applique),
  • medium-weight cut-away stabilizer for the base fabric,
  • applique fabric,
  • light-weight iron-on cut away stabilizer for the applique fabric,


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.
