Get started with a charming felt purse as you learn how to embellish a blank purse with an all-over design, regardless of hoop size. Discover tips for aligning templates, and delve into multi-hooping to adorn a plush towel with a three-part design. Dress up a denim shirt with organic designs as Lisa introduces you to her secret weapon, a trick that practically auto-aligns templates for you! You'’ll also learn to use embroidery software to add alignment lines to any file and build on new skills to make an adorable tech case, extra-large embroidery and even a freestanding continuous lace border.
