Look at the color sequence:

An overview of the embroidery objects:

For the embroidery objects 1 and 2 you can take the color that you will choose for object 3. (Object 1 shows you the size of the card, object 2 only sews the fabric to the stabilizer and object 3 is the background stipple stitch). For object 8 you should take the fabric color again.


Let’s start embroidering:

Hoop the stabilizer and embroider the first object.

Put the fabric on top, and be sure the rectangle is covered. Temporary adhesive spray is very useful!

Embroider all objects and finish nr 7 (the flowers). Take the hoop away from the machine

Place the Decovil on the back of the project with the glue towards the stabilizer. (Find a fitting object to put the embroidery hoop with project on, you could iron the Decovil oto the stabilizer). The next rectangle sews the Decovil to the card.

Take matching bobbin thread with the color you chose for the ouline.

After embroidering the frame, change the bobbin to white Bobbinette thread again.

Embroider the circle for the hole. Punch it out with the smallest tool of the Eyelet embroidery attachment # 82

Six different sizes of eyelet studs allow you to create 6 different sizes of eyelet. Also included is Presser foot for eyelet embroidery #92, a free-motion foot which doesn’t press the fabric against the feed dog – Instead, the vertical spring movement of the presser foot (hopper mechanism) holds the fabric down while stitching, preventing the fabric from being lifted along with the needle (“flagging”).

If you don’t have it, you could also use one of the small holes of a revolging punch tool.

Embroider the last object: it’s a satin stitch circle to finish the hole.

Cut out the card with the rotary cutter and remove loose threads if necessary.
