You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon, follow our color card,
  • water-soluble mesh stabilizer,
  • pale pink fabric for the background, (background fabric is part of the design),
  • polyester craft felt,
  • applique scissors,
  • iron (optional).
Stitch-outs of all 6 coasters, close-ups.

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

The black fabric here is for demonstration purpose only.

Upload the files into the machine. Start embroidering. Change threads as needed. Stop just before the last color.

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.

Cut away the excess stabilizer and rinse the remainder.

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