Christmas Coasters/Ornaments In-the-Hoop
These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Christmas Balls Coasters/Ornaments In-the-Hoop Set.

The designs are for the small hoop (4"x 4").

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon. We offer a color card, but feel free to pick your own colors,
  • water-soluble mesh stabilizer,
  • fabric for the background, choose any color you like,
  • polyester craft felt,
  • applique scissors,
  • iron (optional).
All files are embroidered in the same way. Prepare the threads.
Hoop a layer of watersoluble mesh, craft felt and fabric. Tighten the hoop.

Upload the files into the machine. Start embroidering. The first color will embroider the outline of the coaster. The next color will quilt all over the coaster. The other colors will fill in details. Change threads as needed and work until the last color.

Before the very last color, take the hoop from the machine and working slowly, cut away first the background fabric around the design, then the felt. Take care not to cut through the stitches and the stabilizer.

Return the hoop to the machine and start it. The last color will finish the raw edge.

Cut away the excess stabilizer and rinse the remainder.

Leave to air dry. Press if needed. You can use an iron or simply place the coasters under a flat heavy item.
The fabric is part of the design. It can be of any color.

Here are some more pictures of the coasters.
