In-the-hoop bracelet designs have one full embroidery file and two dielines.

Dieline files are marked with the letters DL. They're used to cut the fabric to the proper shape and size.

Open the dieline files with embroidery software and print them.

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

Take the dieline for the bracelet front and cut around the shape.

CC1 is a dieline, or outline stitch, that traces the shape for the front fabric pieces.
