How to Embroider the Back Pocket of Your Favorite Pair of Jeanscomments (5) September 20th, 2008
Import the design you are going to use into your embroidery machine. This flower was part of a much longer design that included a stem and some leaves. I brought it into my customizing software and chopped off the bloom. If you have embroidery software that allows you to edit designs, keep in mind that you don't have to use the whole design. I thought that the top of this flower would make a perfect pocket design, so I got rid of the stem.
Hoop heavy tear-away stabilizer and draw "cross-hair" lines to make it easy to get your pocket directly in the center of the hoop.
If you want a little sparkle, this is the perfect place to embroider it because the back side of the embroidery won't be against your skin (metallic threads can be a little scratchy). If you are going to use metallic thread, make sure to put a few beads of Sewer's Aid directly on the spool to lubricate the thread. Also, even though I forgot to put it in the photo, use a metallica needle, too.
