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

There are 3 files in the set, but by changing thread colors you can get a great variety of coasters which look very different. The designs are for the large hoop (5" x 7") and measure about 5" x 5".
Finished coasters.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon,
  • 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).
2 coasters embroidered with threads of different colors.

Embroidery
All files are embroidered in the same way. Prepare the threads.
Hoop a layer of watersoluble mesh, craft felt and fabric. Tighten the hoop.

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.

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.
Cut out the fabric and felt around the embroidery.

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 do it with a iron or simply place the coasters under a flat heavy item
