    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    A project that can be completed in an hour or less. A bit challenging when hooping the tote bag since the back of the tote bag needs to be out of the way of the embroidering area. This tutorial shows you how to roll the excess of the bag and secure using masking tape to open up the embroidering area.( As an option, you can remove one or both side seams of your bag for easier clearance of your embroidering area. )


    Step 1:
    Gather all supplies and review instructions before beginning.

    Step 5:
    Hoop stabilizer in your correct size hoop for the design. Mark axis points directly onto stabilizer. Spray temporary adhesive spray onto stabilizer. Place and center tote bag right side up onto stabilizer matching axis points. ( turn bag inside out) Finger press to secure tote bag to stabilizer. ( If tote bag is not sticking to stabilizer, lightly spray a bit more temporary adhesive spray to secure but not too much as it may soak through to the front of the bag.) Masking tape was used to hold back excess of tote to open embroidering area. Make any adjustments as needed during the embroidering process to keep the embroidering area open. Attach hoop to machine. Confirm center needle placement per your machine’s instructions. Review/follow design thread color chart or use your choice of colors. Begin the embroidering process
