    • If using a lightweight fabric (e.g. cotton), use an embroidery hoop to stabilize the fabric.

    • Separate the strands and decide how many you will need to thread.

    • Pull the strand(s) through the eye of the needle and ensure that the needle is in the center of the strand(s).

    • You should have double the amount of floss once threaded than when separated.

    • Repeat this step 1-2 times to strengthen the knot.

    • To strengthen the embroidery you may use either fabric glue or a steamer. If you are using a lightweight fabric, make sure you use an embroidery hoop.

    • To use fabric glue, apply 1-2 drops everywhere that there is embroidery on the back of the fabric. Allow this to dry for at least 5 minutes.

    • If using a steamer, follow the instructions to turn it on for your particular model. Run the steamer over the back of the fabric two times. This will make the stitches taut.

    • Test the steamer first on the fabric in a hidden area before steaming to avoid staining or burning your work.
