  1. Place the second 6” x 3 ¾” folded Blue fabric on the other half, about ½” past the center mark on the hoop. Use embroidery tape on top of the folded fabric to ensure the embroidery foot does not go under the fold.

  1. Color Change 9 is the final step and stitches the Blue fabric in place.

  1. Remove design from hoop and trim to 5” X 5”, which will give you a 1/4″ seam allowance all around. Clip corners. Turn the coaster inside out.
