    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    These are so fast to create, you’ll want to make many to give as gifts or for friends to take home as a memento of your party! Each design in the set takes from 5-7 minutes to stitch.


    Step 1:
    Read through the instructions thoroughly before beginning and assemble all the materials needed to complete the project. Be sure to order the number of sets you need. One thing to note is that though there were six different colors in the photo, when I got my set, there were three green, and one each of pink, blue, and orange. So, don’t expect one of each color. Though there are colors listed in the color sequence, use the colors you would like for each object being stitched.

    Step 2:
    There are six designs created to fit these little serapes. The fabric is acrylic and stretches out of shape easily, so handle the textile gingerly.

    Step 3:
    Hoop one layer of tearaway stabilizer. Align the hoop to the grid marks on a cutting board, using the tick marks on the hoop as guides. Lightly spray the stabilizer with KK2000.

    Step 4:
    Carefully lay down the serape aligning the top horizontal line on the serape with the middle of the hoop, and the side along the vertical line as shown. Rip strips of painters or masking tape and along the very edge of the serape, secure it to the stabilizer with the tape. You might be tempted to skip this step, but don’t. The tape helps keep the acrylic fabric from pulling in as it is stitched.

    Step 5:
    Fold the back of the serape over the front and then carefully load the hoop on the machine being very careful not to catch the center hole on the presser foot or needle. Once the hoop is on the machine, then fold back the back side of the serape so it is out of the stitching field.

    Step 6:
    Load the chosen design on the machine, be sure the center is aligned with the center of the hole and the design is positioned properly. Stitch following the color sequence, using the colors you wish for the serape color you are stitching.

    Step 7:
    When the design has finished stitching, very carefully remove the hoop from the machine. Watch the area with the hole—if it catches on the foot or needle, it will mis-shape the opening.

    Step 8:
    Remove the stabilizer and embroidery from the hoop, turn it over, and remove the excess stabilizer. To make sure the threads or textile fibers aren’t disturbed, place the tip of the nail at the very edge of the outside of the embroidered lines, and then rip the stabilizer against the nail, working around the outside of the design to remove the stabilizer.

    Step 9:
    Repeat all these steps to embroider all the little serapes.
