Make this adorable scented trivet using your embroidery machine.  The trivet features an appliqued cup and a cute saying.  The trivet can be made in one hooping with Maxi-hoop.  If you do not have a Maxi-hoop, you will be required to hoop multiple times and do the final seam on the sewing machine.  The design we are using is #12611-17 from design pack Retro Mod Kitchen Applique.  You can purchase this design or I can allow you to use the design during class and remove it from your machine when you are finished.

Supplies -
Embroidery machine matching Isacord thread for design plus one color for lettering, basic embroidery supplies, one piece of 10” x 10” fabric for backing with fuse and fleece attached, one 12” x 12” piece of fabric for the front will fuse and fleece attached to it, 6” piece of ¼” ribbon, 4” square piece of fabric for the applique with fusible web applied to the back.  If you are using the Maxi-hoop you will need to bring two layers of Ultra-clean and tear for your hoop.  If you are bringing the large oval hoop, you will need to bring your roll and we will cut what you need.
