How To Make Your Own Embroidered Koozie

How To Make Your Own Embroidered Coozies by

Hi All!  This tutorial is for people who own an embroidery machine or are thinking about getting one.  Alternatively, if you have a vinyl cutter like a Silhouette, you could also possibly do a heat transfer vinyl.

I took a video of my machine embroidering a koozie.  I am using fast frames, however, you can easily use a 4×4 hoop.  Here is how:

  • Hoop your stabilizer (I used tearaway).  Make sure the stabilizer is taut and makes a nice drum-like noise when you tap it.
  • Pin or spray your koozie in place with temporary adhesive on top of the hooped stabilizer.  I prefer to pin it in place.  Make sure it’s centered.
  • Then send your design to the machine and your koozie will stitch out similarly to my video.

From there, I created this handy-dandy pictorial for you to follow.  Hope you enjoy making a koozie!  It’s super simple and really makes a statement and/or great gift!

Hipster Stylin’ Babies


Ya’ll, this mustache craze is so cute! I knew I’d have a blast when a mommy who’s having a splash pad party for her little one asked me to make some tank tops with the “mustache”.  She had a very specific style and color scheme in mind, and I was able to work with her to get the perfect custom embroidery t-shirt.

This awesome mom wrote me:

My lil guy is turning 1 in September and I’ve been having the hardest time trying to find what I’m looking for. He’s having a splash pad party so I wanted to get a tank top embroidered with “1” and a mustache, with a lime green “1”. Is that something you can do?

Yes ma’am,  I sure can make that!  She loved it so much that she ordered another shirt, similar with that hipster, mustache style.

Here they are!  Aren’t they so cute!?  Perfect for summer, and perfect for this little boy’s big day turning “1”.  🙂  I know how important these shirts are for our birthday kids, so I’m so honored to be able to make their day a little extra special.
