    Final Product: What You Will Create


    Step 1:
    Gather the materials and read through the instructions before beginning. Print out a paper template of the design. The pattern chosen did not have a bib, so one was created merely by creating a line on the pattern, separating the pieces, and adding a seam allowance to sew the pieces back together after embroidery.

    Step 2:
    Separate and press the pattern pieces. If there is no bib on the pattern you choose, make one by squaring a line on the apron pattern front piece; cut to separate the pieces—remember, a seam allowance needs to be added when cutting the fabric so the pieces can be sewn back together again.

    Step 3:
    Working with the white fabric for the bib, cut a piece of fabric larger than the pattern piece and large enough so it will fit in the hoop. Lay the bib pattern piece on the folded fabric and also determine where the embroidery will be placed by cutting out the template and placing it at the center front of the bib. Be sure there is plenty of fabric beyond the pattern piece so the entire piece of fabric will fit in the hoop. Press the fabric well using spray starch.

    Step 4:
    To find the center of the fabric, fold the fabric in half crosswise and lengthwise and make gentle creases. At the edges of the creases on all four ends make pencil marks; these will be used to realign the pattern piece on the fabric after the embroidery is completed. Align the paper template to the center of the fabric and then hoop the fabric with the chosen stabilizer.

    Step 5:
    Load the design on the machine and align the needle to the center of the template. Remove the paper template and stitch the design following the color sequence.

    Step 6:
    After the embroidery has finished stitching, remove the fabric from the hoop, trim away the excess stabilizer, and press the fabric. Using the pencil marks at the ends of the creases, align the pattern piece to the design and fabric, aligning the fold line in line with the pencil marks at the ends of the vertical creases. Trace the left side of the pattern piece. Flip the pattern piece over, align, trace, and then cut out the pattern piece—adding a seam allowance at the bottom of the pattern.

    Step 7:
    Stitch the red rick rac around the bib after sewing on the neck strap and D ring strap if there is one on your pattern.
