    Final Product: What You Will Create


    Step 1:
    Press your fabric squares with Magic Sizing or spray starch a couple of times. This helps prevent fraying and makes it easier to trim around the scallops.

    Step 2:
    Tautly hoop two layers of fibrous water-soluble stabilizer I the hoop. Take the two layers of starched fabric and the Battilizer® to the embroidery machine. 


    Step 3:
    Run color stop 1 (CS) as a placement line for your fabrics. Note all color stops are stitched with the same color thread.

    Step 4:
    Spray adhesive on the Battilizer® and position over the placement lines so the batting exceeds the placement lines by ½” on all sides. Spray adhesive on a white fabric square and place it over the Battilizer®. Run CS 2 to tack down the fabric.

    Step 5:
    Remove the hoop from the machine, do not unhoop. Trim the fabric right up next to the tack down line around the scallops. Be careful not to cut the tack down stitching. Then trim the Battilizer® around the scallops. Hint: Lifting the excess fabric up and towards the tack down stitches while trimming allows you to trim closer to the tack down stitches.
