Christmas Coasters In-the-Hoop (ITH)
These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Christmas Coasters In-the-Hoop (ITH) Set.

The designs are for the small hoop (4" x 4").
Stitch-outs of the coasters.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon. We used green and red threads, but feel free to pick your own colors;
  • water-soluble mesh stabilizer,
  • fabric for the background, (background fabric is part of the design, it can be of any color, we used white),
  • polyester craft felt,
  • applique scissors,
  • iron (optional).

All files are embroidered in the same way. Prepare the threads.

Black fabric here for demonstration purpose only. We used white fabric for the coasters.
Upload the files into the machine. Start embroidering. Change threads as needed. Work till the last color remains to be done.
Design in the hoop, embroider till the last color remains to be done.

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.

Leave to air dry. Press if needed. You can do it with a iron or simply place the coasters under a flat heavy item
