Machine Embroidery Tutorial for Square In-the-Hoop Coasters

Posted by on Feb 02, 2012


If you are new to machine embroidery, I just want to take a minute to let you know that no matter what make and model embroidery machine you have, it can sew out this project as long as you have a 4×4 hoop and you download the correct design format for your machine (more on design formats later).

“In the hoop” is a phrase that usually means the entire project is done within the embroidery hoop and does not require any sewing machine steps at all. However, sometimes, the majority of an “in the hoop” project will be done in the hoop and just the last steps will be done with your sewing machine. Either way, I think these types of projects are FUN!
