IN THE HOOP EMBROIDERY PROJECT
A BABY BIB
Step by step tutorial is available on my site
The design is free on my site
What you will need
Wash away stabilizer flannel fabric modern embroidery machine with a big hoop 9 ½” x 14”
You can use any 100% cotton fabric you like for this project – just ensure to choose something soft and comfortable on your child's skin so that your little one is comfortable wearing it.
Load the baby bib in the hoop embroidery design onto your machine
Don’t change the order of steps in the design
Choose the thread for the fabric Christmas tree baby bib
Use only one layer of water-soluble stabilizer for baby bibs
It’s really important to hoop stabilizer correctly so it has proper tension and doesn’t move within the hoop at all.
You can use t-pins to hold the stabilizer in the hoop better.
Start the first step of the embroidery design and make a placement stitch on the stabilizer.
Stitch bib fabric and batting to the stabilizer
Cut out the cotton flannel fabric to the shape of the bib.But don't unhoop yet!
For this try using Duckbill Scissors !
Lay different color fabric pieces over their placement lines. Run the next 5 steps of the embroidery design
Cut out the applique fabrics
Place the cotton flannel fabric (a rectangle 11” x 14”) under the hoop making sure that the fabric covers the bib completely.
Finish the appliques on the baby bib with satin stitches
Remove the hoop and trim the batting and the back fabric
Run the last step of the design, cut away the excess water soluble stabilizer, wash in warm water.
