Basic Steps to Make a Feltie

This is how the majority of my feltie files are stitched. Some of my designs add the felt to the back of the hoop before the last step.  I always include a PDF in my files that include the stitch chart and written instructions.

When I refer to color steps in my instructions, I am referring to the steps shown here in the color chart.

4) Stitch color steps 2-7, the detail steps. (The number of steps will vary greatly with each design.)

5) Take the hoop off of your machine and place a piece of felt on the backside of your hoop.  Use a touch of temporary adhesive spray or tape      along the edges to keep the felt from falling off.

6) Place your hoop back on the machine and stitch color step 8, the final outline. (With some designs this is the last 2 or 3 steps.) Take out of the hoop and cut the cute feltie out!

About Marisa

I am a SAHM to 6 wonderful children, 4 boys and 2 girls! I started embroidering when I got a machine for my birthday! That quickly turned into wanting to learn how to digitize and because of a little prompting by a couple of fellow digitizing friends, I started selling my designs. I planned to only digitize for myself. You can see how well that worked out!! Thanks for stopping by and please contact me with any questions!
