- Select the “mini” layer and change the cut lines to draw lines
- Resize cut file to 2.75” (or whatever size you would like to work with)
- Press make it
- Move the cut file down and over slightly on your mat preview so that there is at least an inch of space between the tops and sides of your stabilizer and cut file
- Connect to your maker and select “firm stabilizer” as your material setting
- Place your stabilizer in the top left corner of your mat and smooth out
- Load your mat into your cricut
- Load your cricut marker in clamp A of your machine
- Press the flashing cricut button
- Unload the mat and remove the stabilizer from your mat
- Place stabilizer in the desired location on your jean jacked
- Place easy press mat under jean jacket where the stabilizer is placed.
- Using your easy press (heated to 350), apply pressure and heat to your stabilizer ensuring that the stabilizer adheres firmly to your jacket.
- Place your embroidery hoop on your jean jacket making sure that you tighten enough so that your project remains firm and tight during embroidery.
- Thread your needle with your desired embroidery thread. Knot at the end for use as a double strand.
- Using a split stitch for embroidery, embroider the outline of your design.
- Once outline is finished, fill-in the inside of your design using the same split stitch.
- Stitch the dots on your “i’s”
- Remove embroidery hoop & stabilizer
