A grey sweatshirt with cat embroidery over a black background

You will need :
  • a sweatshirt of any color,
  • a piece of fabric for embroidery that contrasts with the sweatshirt,
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon - black for a light fabric, or light grey for dark fabric,
  • tiny yellow and green buttons for the cats' eyes (optional),
  • light-weight tear-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • quilter's ruler, chalk pencil, rotary cutter or scissors,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle.
Stabilize and hoop your fabric tightly. Upload the Halloween Cat into your machine. Embroider the designs one by one.

The finished embroidery - grey cats on black background.

Cut out the rectangle. If you have shears with a zig-zag edge, use it.
