You will need:
  • embroidery threads, eiher polyester or rayon,
  • solid color cotton fabric (we used Osnaburg),
  • craft felt,
  • bias tape or fabric for bias binding,
  • #12 universal sewing needle,
  • sewing threads of matching colors,
  • scissors or rotary cutter,
  • trim to make a loop (you can use bias tape for this, if you like),
  • iron.
Embroidery
Cut 2 pieces of cotton fabric and a piece of felt. Make a sandwich with felt between the fabric layers.

Upload the file "pocket-back" into the machine and embroider it.

For the pocket fronts, use only 2 layers - fabric and felt. The felt works as a stabilizer.

Embroider the files and cut them out, leaving 1/4" margins.
