Embroidery
Note: you can embroider the Steps 1-4 with one color. We made them different to make the machine stop.
Step One: Hoop a piece of spunbond nonwoven fabric. Upload the file into the machine. Start the machine. The first color will embroider an outline of the necklace.

Step Two: Cover the outline with a piece of felt. Start the machine, it will embroider the same outline over the felt.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine and cut away the felt around the outline as close to the stitches as possible. Be careful not to cut through the stitches.
Step Four: Pin 2 pieces of ribbon in the corners as shown on the pictures below.

Step Six: Cut away the fabric around the outline close to the stitches. Take care not to cut through the stitches, through the spunbond/stabilizer and cut away the ribbons.

Step Seven: Colors 5-13 embroider the design. Follow the color card when you embroider the design for the first time at least. Then you can choose your own colors.
Step Eight: Before you start embroidering color 14, pin a piece of lining fabric to the back of the hoop. Check that the ribbons are not on the embroidery field.
Return the hoop to the machine.
