I know I have a lot of friends having babies or family members having babies so something that's always extra special is a cute baby, blanket that you can buy at target or Tuesday morning, Walmart and embroider the baby's name on it. So that's what we're going to be doing today, so the first thing you're going to want to do is usually with a baby blanket. I can do something a little bit medium sized.
I guess you would say so I'll be using the 5 by 7 hoop that came with my brother 770 embroidery machine which I'm going to show you later. But this is a hoop that came with it. It comes in two pieces outer and inner, and this silver bracket here is where it actually, who hooks onto the machine with this particular blanket we're gonna, do something called floating on this today. So, instead of trying to press this thick blanket between these two hoops or we're going to flip it on top, show you what I'm talking about in a second, so first thing, you're going to do is get some of our supplies together, I'm going to be using iron-on, tearaway, stabilizer or the stabilizer behind the blanket so help hold the thread in place.
Other things I'll be using is the water-soluble topper. This is going to help keep the threads from sinking into the blanket. So we'll use this after so you're going to need your stabilizer, your soup, some scissors, and a ruler or measuring tape. So first take my stabilizer and put it over my head like this, and now I'm gonna take fifty pieces of the hoop apart and just leave the bottom down. I'm gonna take my stabilizer and put it on top and now use the top portion of the hoop to press down, and you just want to snap it into a place where the stabilizer is nice and taut, and you can tighten the two pieces together by screwing.
This piece at the bottom now that we have the stabilizer in the hoop I'm going to mark it to find the center and create some cross hairs. So I'm going to use that grid that came with the hoop and you can see that it fits in nicely. You want to make sure the circle is in the top right portion and that you can read the ABC that's written right here, so they have some holes cut out here in the grid. So I'm going to use a water-soluble pen. I use this on fabric and on my stabilizers, so I'm just going to press inside the little cutout holes and then use a ruler to create some cross hairs and all the supplies that I'm using today will be linked.
It's a link on my blog on how to get started with machine embroidery and all the supplies you need. So I will link that below. So you can see all the different supplies that I'm using like this pin and stabilizer and who've been everything else. So now I've created my cross hairs on my stabilizer, so I'm set it aside for now and I'm going to spread out the baby, blankets, so I've decided I want to put the name right at the middle in the bottom, so I'm gonna find the middle using A soft tape measure and so that right at 28, inches so 14 for the middle and I'm again, please not grid to figure out the placement of a name, and I think I'm only gonna use probably inch or inch and a half um tall letters.
