So whether you're stitching this kind of design, or a regular
outline-only design, load up your file.
Choose a piece of lightweight fabric, with medium weight cutaway
stabilizer adhered to the back of your fabric with temporary spray
adhesive. Leave enough extra fabric around where you plan to stitch
your design, so you can easily turn it into a plushie.
Hoop up your fabric and stabilizer and stitch out your design.
Now you're ready to make a plushie!
