You will need:

  • applique scissors.

The files of the deer and tree are embroidered in the same way.
Step 1: Hoop your base fabric stabilized with cut-away stabilizer. Upload either tree or deer file from the set into the machine. Start the machine. The first color will embroider the outline of the applique fabric placement and stop.
Step 2: Cover the outline with applique fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the fabric and stop.

Step 3: With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the excess applique fabric around the outline. Cut as close to the stitches as possible, take care not to cut through the stitches.
