For all of the designs, one file will be the embroidery file, and that file name begins with the letter "X" followed by 5 numbers. The other files are dieline files, and those files names end with "_DLFront" and "_DLback". Dielines are used to cut the fabric to the right shape and size.

Open each dieline file with an embroidery software, and print it. If you do not have embroidery software, Wilcom's TrueSizer is a free program to use.

Now that the fabric pieces are cut and ready, it's time to embroider the coaster. Hoop a piece of tear-away stabilizer.

Attach the hoop to the machine and load the embroidery design. Embroider the design.

The first thing to embroider will be the dieline. This marks the area on the stabilizer to place the front fabric piece.

Spray the back of the front fabric piece with adhesive.

Remove the hoop from the machine, but do not unhoop the stabilizer. Place the fabric right inside the sewn dieline.

Attach the hoop back onto the machine and continue with the design -- a running stitch tack down will sew next. This holds the front fabric in place for the remainder of the design.

All of the inside elements will sew next. On the color change sheet, look for the note that says "back piece tack down." When you get to this section, stop the machine and remove the hoop from the machine but do not unhoop the stabilizer.
