So I switched to a teal blue and I am much happier! Here are a few pics of the process.
Step #1 - stitch out a placement stitch for the fabric.
Step #2 - Place the felt AND fabric on top of the stabilizer.
Then the machine prompts you to start the needle punch section of the design.
Be sure to select the correct needle as well or SHE will NOT be happy and start the 'punching'!
Now SHE is punching....
But the best is the finished design!
Oh wait! Turn it over!
Next I will start stitching a few houses so you can check them out...
