    Sewing in the hoop: An embroidered bag in the shape of a house

    Sewing in the hoop: An embroidered bag in the shape of a house

    An embroidered bag in the shape of a house

    For this job, you’ll need:

    • A hoop, size 20 x 30 cm
    • A design, size 20 x 30 cm
    • A piece of yellow fabric, size 20 x 24 cm
    • Two pieces of red fabric, size 20 x 8 cm each
    • Two strips of fabric for the eyelets, size 7 x 3 cm each
    • A piece of lining, size 32 x 18 cm
    • Colored embroidery threads
    • High-loft interfacing material (adhesive)
    • Tearaway stabilizer
    • A zipper

    If you’re going to use a Brother V machine, you’ll need to have the Premium Pack I installed to be able to enlarge the embroidery field to 20 x 30 cm.

    With an iron, fuse the high-loft interfacing material to the yellow fabric. Place a piece of tearaway stabilizer under the fabric and hoop them together. Make sure that the center of the yellow piece corresponds to the center of the hoop.

    Begin the embroidery. The machine will stitch the outline and make a stop.

    Don’t unhoop; place the red pieces on top. Fuse them to the high-loft interfacing material with an iron, fix the edges with glue and continue embroidery.

    Iron the embroidery and cut along the outline.

    Now create the eyelets. Fold the 14 3 cm strip of fabric in two, stitch along the longer side and turn the right side out. The ready eyelets should measure 7 x 2 cm.

    Turn the right side out and iron. Drag a cord or a band through the eyelets. It will serve as a handle.
