SKU: han793tm

Difficulty: Beginner

This is a machine embroidery design not a patch. You need to transfer the files to your embroidery machine to use it.

For these types of designs it is very important to use the same color for the bobbin thread as the top thread - i.e. if you embroider the red thread - it is also necessary to use the red bobbin thread. If you do not do this, the design will not be the same on both sides.

The designs should be embroidered with water soluble stabilizer. We use Vilene water soluble stabilizer-If it’s too thin use two layers. Use a size 11 or 75/11 sharp sewing needle and 40 weight rayon or polyester thread. For my designs, I mostly use embroidery threads from Gunold - SU rayon (sulky rayon), Isacord or Brother embroidery threads.

-For this design I used 100% cotton - 195gr / m2
You can also use high quality satin.
-Ribbon of at least 63 inches long.
-embroidery machine
-needle and thread or sewing machine
-Very sharp small scissors - best with a curved tip.I recommend using a temporary adhesive for the fabric.
