Print Llama design on StabilStick Template sheet using your embroidery software. Peel off the paper backing and position template on the front piece of the poncho.
Hoop StabilStick CutAway paper side up. Score paper and remove to expose the sticky surface.
Finger press the fabric in place.
Align template under needle on the machine to get design centered perfectly. Remove StabilStick Template sheet before embroidering.
Place StitcH2O Topper over embroidery area and use OESD Expert Embroidery Tape TearAway and/or use the baste function on your machine to attach topper onto fabric to prevent shifting. Embroider design with Organ Ball Point Embroidery Needle.
Cutaway stabilizer from the back of design ¼” to ½” from the design. TearAway excess Stitch2O topper and wet any areas that you cannot tear to remove all topper.
Pin edge of neckline ½”. Fold over once since fleece will not fray. Use a dual feed or a walking foot (if available) to stitch in place. This is a great time to try out some decorative stitches on your machine.
Pin and sew ball fringe to bottom sections of both front and back squares of fleece.
With right sides together, pin and sew side seams from neckline to bottom sides. Use a ½” seam allowance.
