    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Step 1:
    Angelina Instructions In General

    There are two types of Angelina, one of which is heat bond-able. The heat bond-able Angelina, which is called “Hot Fix”, will bond to itself. To make it bond, place a small amount of Angelina between two sheets of tracing paper, parchment paper or paper towels. With your iron set to silk setting, iron the Angelina for a few seconds. Lift the top paper and check on the status of the bonding. If it has not bonded, wither press it again for a few more seconds, or increase the temperature on your iron. Once you have a good bond, you have a non-woven sheet of “fabric”.

    The longer you iron the Angelina, the more the color changes and it can sometimes dull the surface (not necessarily a bad thing). Two or more colors can be mixed to create your own colors. The more Angelina you use, the stiffer the ending “fabric”. Regardless of the thickness, you can satin stitch it if you want. To get a feathery effect, fuse only the center portion of your Angelina, leaving fine hairs around the edges. I used the feathery effect for this project. Using the two pieces of paper towel and your choice of color(s) of Angelina fibers create a “fabric” a couple of inches larger than your FSL design.

    Step 2:
    Place the Angelina fabric between two (2) layers of fibrous water soluble stabilizer and tightly hoop the stabilizer.

    Step 3:
    Using your polyester embroidery thread with matching bobbin stitch out the design changes thread and bobbin as needed.

    Step 4:
    When finished stitching remove from hoop and trim excess stabilizer.

    Step 5:
    Rinse in warm water and blot dry. Lay on lint free towel to dry completely.

    Step 6:
    When the design is completely dry you then decide if you want to leave the excess Angelina sticking out the edges of the design or trim. Either looks good it just depends on what you like. Add a ribbon to hang and enjoy!
