This project is very beginner-friendly and comes together quickly with just a few supplies! Check out this step-by-step machine embroidery tutorial, then create your own one-of-a-kind masterpiece to bring character and personality to any room in your house!
- Vintage Nautical PK10027
- OESD Heavy Weight CutAway
- OESD Fuse and Seal
- OESD Heat2Go
- OESD Grippy Grid
- OESD Expert Embroidery Tape TearAway
- 505 Adhesive Spray
- Fabric and frame of your choice – we used denim and an 8″x10″ frame (you won’t need the glass)
- 8.5″ x 11″ piece of cardstock
Gather your supplies.
Cut 2 layers of Heavy Weight CutAway stabilizer and use 505 Adhesive spray to adhere to the fabric. Using the Grippy Grid, hoop your fabric and stabilizer.
Bring up the design on your embroidery machine and attach the hoop.
Use Expert Embroidery Tape – TearAway to attach a piece of Heat2Go to your fabric before the stitching begins.
Stitch out the design (this only has 2 colors) until completed. Remove the hoop from the machine and then remove the fabric from the hoop.
Remove the TearAway Tape and then tear away as much as you can of Heat2Go. Remove the rest with your iron.
Place the design face down onto the Perfect Embroidery Press Cloth and press.
Take any glass and/or cardboard out of the frame you wish to use for your project.
Position the frame over your stitched design to see where you’d like to place your embroidery within it.
Place the glass insert from the frame over the design. Use a pencil or marker and trace around the glass.
Cut on the marked lines.
Trim the stabilizer, 1 layer at a time, around the design.
Cut a piece of Fuse and Seal a bit smaller than the dimensions of your fabric.
Iron the Fuse and Seal to the back of the design.
Peel the paper from the back of the Fuse and Seal and iron it onto the cardstock.
Trim the cardstock to match the size of your fabric. Insert the design into frame and reassemble the frame.
Enjoy your new embroidered wall art!
