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

There are 6 files in the set, the designs are for the large hoop (5" x 7") and measure about 5" x 5".

We made our coasters on off-white background fabric.

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 off-white),
  • 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. Change threads as needed. Stop just before the last color.
Stitch-out before the last color embroidered.

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.
Stitch-out with the background fabric and felt cut away.

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 so with an iron or simply place the coasters under a flat heavy item for a few hours.

Have fun!
