When you download an
in-the-hoop spool of thread
design, you'll find three files.
One file will begin with the
letter "X" followed by 4 numbers
-- that's the embroidery file.
The other files are marked with
"_DL" -- those are the dielines.
The dielines are used to
cut the fabric for the front and
back (the files are marked as
"_DLFront" and "_DLBack"). If
you have embroidery software,
open the DL (dieline) files and
print them at full size.
These are the templates we
will use to cut the shapes. If
you do not have embroidery
software, you can sew the
dielines directly onto paper. To
do this, hoop a piece of paper
and embroider the dieline files.
