Directions:

Trace the design onto your foundation cloth using bright window or light box.  Place design on back of fabric and trace onto front.  The flat stitches will be on the front and the loops on the back.

Insert your fabric into your hoop and tighten while pulling the fabric taut.

Begin filling in your design.

Once completed, clean up the back or your piece by snipping any long tails.

Cut out a piece of backing fabric and pin into place.

Stitch around the design using a zipper foot.  Get close to the design but be careful not to stitch your loops.  Remember to leave an opening to turn your design right side out.

Note: it may be a good idea to cut your design and backing out first with a 1/2" - 1" seam allowance and zig-zag the edges to prevent fraying.
