Size: 196mm x 235mm (4.19" x 4.85"). Stitches: 18020. Colors: 1/3 (different colors for stops only).

You will need :

  • embroidery threads, either rayon or polyester,
  • base fabric (fabric on which you embroider),
  • embroidery stabilizer, the type and weight depends on your project (we used light-weight cut-away),
  • piece of applique fabric,
  • scissors.


Stabilize the base fabric with stabilizer. Hoop it tightly.
Prepare the embroidery thread. Please note that you do not need to change threads - you can use the same thread to embroider the entire design.
Upload one of the embroidery files into the machine.

The first color will embroider the outline of the motif and stop.

Cover the outline with a piece of applique fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the applique fabric and stop.

With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric around the outline and inside the motif circles as close to the stitches as possible.

Return the hoop to the machine. Start it again. The last, third, color will finish the raw edges of the applique.
