When you download the in-the-hoop wine bottle bookmark design, you'll find three files.

One is the embroidery file, and the others are dieline files, marked with the letters DL. Dielines are used to cut the fabric to the right shape and size.

Open the dielines files with embroidery software and print them.

If you do not have embroidery software, Wilcom's TrueSizer is
a free program to use.

Now that the fabric pieces are cut to the proper shape and size, it's time to embroider the design.

Hoop a piece of tear-away stabilizer. Madeira E-Zee Tear 1.5 oz. or Floriani Tearaway Medium are good choices.

Attach the hoop to the machine and embroider the design.

The first thing to embroider will be a dieline, or outline stitch. This marks the area on the stabilizer for 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 outline.

Reattach the hoop onto the machine and continue with the design.

A zigzag stitch tack down will sew next. This holds the front fabric in place for the remainder of the design.

When you get to this section, stop the machine and remove the hoop from the machine. Do not unhoop the stabilizer.
