1. Use double faced interfacing to iron two layers of leather/ fake leather together, wrong side to wrong side.
2. Measure your waistline. Calculate how many embroidery designs you need for the length. Leave about 3” (7.5cm) inches without embroideries where the buckle is going to be positioned. Leave at least 4” (10cm) on the other end to be able to punch holes to adjust the length when you close the belt.
3. Load and embroider as many cutwork designs as you need. We used design #8 from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #239, “Cutwork Technique II"
