These are instructions on how to embroider designs from the Cross Stitch Bracelet Set and to make bracelets. All designs from the set are for the large hoop (5" x 7").
Stitch-outs of the bookmarks.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon, the color depends on the color of the fabric used for the borders,
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer, preferably of black color, or Oly Fun (multi-purpose craft material) of any color instead of stabilizer,
  • polyester craft felt of different colors, or thin faux leather,
  • ribbon ends, 1/2" and 1" wide,
  • bracelet/necklace closures,
  • jewelry pliers and other jewelry tools depending on the accessories you use.
Hoop the cut-away stabilizer, or Oly Fun.

Place a piece of felt or faux leather over the stabilizer, baste or pin outside the embroidery field.

Print out the color card. Upload the design of your choice into the machine.
