The specially designed ”Embroider & Shine” collection is made of 5 units in various shapes to give you unlimited variety! You can find them, plus 3 ready-made combinations, as free downloads here.


You will need:

 

 

Embroider:

  1. Hoop the stabilizer in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Large Embroidery Hoop 240x150mm (9.6” x 6”) with the sticky side up.
  2. Place the leather on the stabilizer. This stabilizer is perfect for materials that you do not want to hoop because it might leave marks on it. Place the leather on top, making sure it sticks to the stabilizer.
  3. Embroider the #2016 design (see ill. 1).
