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!
