    Preface:
    Brighten up your kitchen with this fun pie towel topper. The topper is separate from the towel, so it can be used with different color towels throughout the season. Make the pie any color you like for different seasons. This is all done in the hoop, so it’s fun and easy! To use the topper you tuck the towel end through the elastic on the back, tuck it over the towel bar and back into the elastic.


    Step 1:
    Gather the materials and read through the instructions before beginning. Print out a paper template of the design and color sequence.

    Step 7:
    With this project, you will stitch the back side of the pie (crust) and the elastic to the project while it is hooped. This can be tricky as you need to make sure you secure the crust fabric and the elastic to the UNDER side of the hoop with embroidery tape while being very careful not to dislodge the hooped project. This must be done so the project lines will match up and so that the fabric and elastic don’t get caught on the underside of the hoop. CAREFULLY place the project back onto the machine and allow it to finish stitching the design. This will secure the backing and elastic all in one step.

    Step 8:

    Step 11:
    Place your hooped project on the embroidery machine and confirm center placement. Remove the template. If you wish to use water soluble stabilizer (WSS) place the WSS between the hoop and the needle, securing it with embroidery tape, and stitch out the design following the color sequence.
