Supplies Needed

Tools & Supplies Needed:
• Embroidery machine
• Embroidery Thread and bobbin (40wt polyester thread is suggested, bobbin can be the same or use 60wt or 90wt bobbin thread if you like). Choose a thread color to match your fabric for the seams. Then choose colors for vine and flowers. Also, if this is your first time making the coat & hat, using a different color for placement lines and seams will help you know which basting stitches to tear out.
• Sharp fabric scissors
• Fabrics – choose non-fray fabrics such as felt, fleece, or jersey
•      Small – use 11” x 11” piece of fabric in 5×7 hoop
•      Medium – use 14” x 14” piece of fabric in 6×10 hoop
•      Large – use 16” x 16” piece of fabric in 7×12 or 8×12 hoops
•      (You will be folding this fabric during the stitch out process, so it needs to be big enough to cover the design after it’s folded)
• Recommended Embroidery stabilizers: tear-away or soluble stabilizer as the base, and soluble topper if you’re embroidering on fuzzy or stretchy fabrics as recommended.
