How to: In The Hoop Wallet by Annemarie

Name: Botanicals Wallet Product ID: ASH3415B  
Colors Used:  1    Designs:  3 Designs Stitch count: 10,144 – 12,091 
Hoop size: 5” x 7” Completed size: 4.74” x 5.40”

Complete this wallet using your embroidery machine.


You need: Embroidery thread, matching bobbin thread, scissors, cut-away stabilizer, thin batting, plain fabric, contrast fabric
Cutting list:

  • Cut -away stabilizer 3 x 9” x 12” (or 3 pieces large enough to use in your 5*7 frame)
  • Thin type batting 2 x 5½” x 6½” (for front and back panel)
  • Plain Fabric 3 x 5½” x 6½” (for front and 2 inner panels)
  • Contrast Fabric 1 x 5½” x 6½” (for back panel)
  • Plain Fabric 4 x 5½” x 5½” (for pockets) each to be folded in half
  • Contrast Fabric 4 x 5½” x 5½” (for pockets) each to be folded in half


Start: Hoop your cut-away stabilizer

Color stop 1: Stitch file 01 first = front panel. Stitch the 1st color stop = outline

Place batting on top of the outline. Then place plain fabric on top of the batting

Color stop 2: This color stop = running stitch to secure the batting and fabric

Color stop 3: The design will stitch in this color stop
 
Remove the design from the hoop and cut away the excess stabilizer and batting. Also cut away excess fabric, leaving an edge of approx. ½” all around. Set aside as we will stitch file 02 next.


Color stop 1: We will stitch file 02 next = left inner panel. Stitch the 1st color stop = outline
Color stop 2: Place plain fabric to cover the outline. We will not use batting now. The next color stop will secure the fabric.
Color stop 3: Lace fill design will stitch now.

Color stop 4: We will now create the 4 pockets. Use 2 plain fabric and 2 contrast fabric each sized 5½” x 5½”. Fold each fabric in half. A square outline will stitch.
 
Place the fold to align with the top of the rectangle.
Color stop 5: A marker will stitch to indicate where the fold should be placed


Color stop 6: The 1st pocket will be secured with an outline

Color stop 7  - 12: Repeat the steps above to create all 4 pockets. We alternated the contrast and plain fabric for the 4 pockets.

Color stop 13: A running stitch will stitch the wider area to show where file 01 should be placed. Remove hoop carefully and using temporary adhesive spray (we used 505 spray) attach panel 01 to the BACK of the hoop.

Designs 01 and 02 are now back to back

Color stop 14: The next color stop will secure the 2 panels. Remove hoop and cut away any excess fabric from the front and from the back.


Color stop 15: The final Satin Outline will secure all the raw edges.

Once the final color stop is complete, you can remove the design from the hoop.
Cut away excess stabilizer.

Now to complete file 03 which will be the right side and back of the wallet.
Color stop 1: Stitch the 1st color stop = outline

Place fabric on top of the outline. We will not use batting now.
Color stop 2: This color stop = running stitch to secure the fabric

Color stop 3: The lace fill will stitch in this color stop

Color stop 4: We will again create 4 pockets. We will use 2 plain fabric and 2 contrast fabric each sized 5½” x 5½”. Fold each fabric in half. A square outline will stitch.

Place the fold to align with the top of the rectangle.
Color stop 5: A marker will stitch to indicate where the fold should be placed
Color stop 6: The pockets will be secured with an outline

Color stop 7  - 12: Repeat the steps above to create all 4 pockets. We alternated the contrast and plain fabric for the 4 pockets.

Color stop 13: A running stitch will stitch the wider are to show where the batting and contrast fabric should be placed. Remove hoop carefully and using temporary adhesive spray (we used 505 spray) attach the batting and on top of the batting the contrast fabric to the BACK of the hoop.

Color stop 14: The next color stop will secure the 2 panels. Remove hoop and cut away any excess fabric from the front and from the back.

Color stop 15: The final Satin Outline will secure all the raw edges.

Once the final color stop is complete, you can remove the design from the hoop.
Cut away excess stabilizer.

Sewing: Place the 2 panels side by side and secure with a zigzag stitch on your sewing machine
