    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    Black embroidery always looks better when it is stitched with a black bobbin even if your tension is perfectly set. Though it is listed as optional in the materials list, I highly recommend that you use one.


    Step 1:
    Hoop no-show mesh stabilizer and your fabric in a 5” x 7” hoop. These are one color designs, so with black thread in the top and bobbin of your machine stitch the design.

    Step 2:
    Acid free, self-stick mounting boards are used to successfully frame the embroideries. This brand is available from Hobby Lobby®.

    Step 5:
    Open the mat package, but do not remove the paper covering the mat. Place the embroidery over the mat. Measure the space between the sides of the embroidery and the edge of mat so that the embroidery is ½” from the sides of the mat and that the bottom of the plant stand legs are 1” above the bottom of the mat. Draw the outline of the mat onto the fabric with a pencil or marking pen.

    Step 6:
    Lay the 1” mark of a see-through ruler along the lines you drew on the fabric and trim the fabric so you have this 1” margin all around the embroidery.

    Step 7:

    Step 8:

    Step 9:
