HINT: When using my Singer EM9305 sewing machine, I love to use my Metal Hoop. The Metal hoop not only allows for quick and easy hooping, but the fabric is also not damaged in the process. You can also use your iron without the fear of melting or damaging your hoop.

NOTE: Due to the item going into the microwave, it is recommended all products being 100% cotton

  1. Set your sewing machine to embroidery mode as per instructions.
  2. Using AQ55325 GO! Queen of Hearts die, cut 2 x small hearts.

  4. Attach hoop to your machine
  5. Select two small heart designs and arrange in your preferred way.
  6. Follow instructions included with the design to embroider.
  7. Once completed, remove from machine and hoop. Tidy up any loose threads and remove excess tearaway.
