Hoop the stabilizer in the 240x150mm (9.6” x 6”) Hoop with the sticky side up.
Place the leather on the stabilizer. This stabilizer is perfect for materials that you do not want to hoop because it might leave marks on it.
Place the leather on top, making sure it sticks to the stabilizer.
Embroider the #2016 design (see illustration for placement).
Attach the Leather/Vinyl presser foot
Place the leather and lining right sides together and sew the short edge next to the embroideries with a 1cm (5/8") seam allowance using a straight stitch (see illustration).
Turn inside out.
Place the leather and lining wrong sides together and stitch them together with a straight stitch, following the edge with the presser foot.
