    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    The mats all stitch in the same order; the only difference is the “latte” patterns. The stitching goes fast and is fun to watch. 


    Step 1:
    Read through the instructions thoroughly before beginning and assemble all the materials needed to complete the project. Use embroidery threads that will give the look of a latte on the chosen fabric. Starch the fabrics well and steam the fleece piece to fluff it up.

    Step 2:
    Load the design on the machine. Hoop one layer of poly mesh stabilizer and stitch color 1, the placement line. Remove the hoop from the machine and spray lightly with KK2000. Center the Pellon fleece on top. Lightly spray the top of the fleece with KK2000 and center the white Kona cotton on top.

    Step 4:
    Stitch color 4, the text. Stitch color 5, the placement line for the small brown batik piece of fabric. Place down the small batik fabric and stitch color 6 to tack it down. Remove the hoop from the machine and trim away the excess fabric from the outside of the circle.

    Step 5:
    Place the hoop back on the machine. Stitch the next color which will do the handle shadow. Continue to follow the color sequence for stitching the latte design. The next to the last thing to stitch will be the top handle and rim of the cup.

    Step 6:
    Remove the hoop from the machine, spray the back side of the stabilizer. Quarter fold and center the largest piece of batik on the back of the hoop. Place the hoop back on the machine and stitch the last color which will tack the backing to the front.

    It is best to use a color for this last stitching that will coordinate with the batik, in the bobbin. White bobbin thread was used for the photo so you could see the stitching on the fabric.


    Step 8:
    After all the colors have finished stitching, remove the embroidery from the hoop and place the piece face down on a cutting surface. Fold one edge of the backing back along the stitching line and finger press. Use a ruler to cut off the front fabric, batting and stabilizer to ¼”. Repeat on the remaining three sides.

    Step 9:
    Flip the piece over and now cut ¾” away from the ¼” cut, which will be 1” from the outer stitching line of the embroidery.

    Step 10:
    Press each cut edge of the back batik to the cut edge of the front fabric.

    Step 11:
    Now press over again so the folded edge just barely covers the outer most stitching line of the embroidery. Miter the corners.

    Step 12:
    Load the top and bobbin thread of the sewing machine with embroidery thread to match the batik. Edge stitch the binding down along all edges.
