    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    The link is to a set of eight Holiday Gift Tag designs. Purchase the set so you’ll always have the perfect gift tag. Names may be added either in embroidery software or at the machine that has that capability. It takes about 30 minutes to set up each gift tag and stitch it, so several may be done in an afternoon.


    Step 1:
    Read through the instructions thoroughly before beginning and assemble all the materials needed to complete the project.

    Step 3:
    Hoop one layer of fleece with one layer of poly mesh stabilizer. For this project, several gift tags were ganged up in one large hoop. If you have a large hoop for your machine you may wish to do this, too, or each one could be stitched in a small hoop.

    Step 4:
    Load the design on the machine. If adding lettering at the machine, do it as indicated in the machine instructions. A large hoop was chosen for this project so several designs could be stitched at once. Move the first design into position in the upper left hand corner of the hoop.

    Step 5:
    There are several ways to load and stitch designs. It may be done all at once, or individually. To keep the colors easier to identify, I chose to upload each design individually and then stitch it.

    Step 13:
    After all the designs have stitched, remove the embroidery from the hoop and generally cut the tags apart. Using sharp shears, trim the excess fleece from around each tag leaving about 1/8” of fleece. Repeat until all the tags are trimmed.
