Click on the monochromatic icon. Only one color will be used for all elements of the design.
Hoop the tear-away stabilizer in the 200mm x 200mm hoop and lightly spray with the temporary spray adhesive.
To mark the red section, fold the piece in half and finger press to create a crease line and mark using a Chaco liner.
Fold the other direction and finger press to create another crease line. Mark this crease line only in the center.
Where the two lines cross will be the center on the fabric and the location for placing the embroidered design.
Place the fabric in the center of the hoop with the cross marks as close to center as possible.
To fine tune the placement of the design, click on the Camera icon. Move the design so that the design is centered over the cross marks.
The cross marks should show up on the screen when using the camera.
Embroider the design using off white Madeira thread, along with white thread in the bobbin.
With right sides together and using a ½” seam allowance, sew the off white section to the top of the red embroidered section.
Press the seam towards the off white section.
With right sides together, sew the back seam together using a ½” seam allowance.
On the off white section, fold the raw edge inward and press. Fold the off white section inside the bag and pin over the seam line.
Top stitch close to the seam and then top stitch additional rows ½” away from each other.
To form the bottom of the bag, fold the sides inward at an angle and stitch one inch from the point.
