Supplies to embroider a positive quote with cutwork tool:

  • Non-fringing (synthetic) fabric I had 3 layes of this thin material (each 14 x16 cm). You could use felt or a trible layer of skai. Several kinds of material are suitable, but more than 3mm thick would probably be a problem.
  • Mettler Poly Sheen embroidery thread in a contrasting colour.
  • I used the embroidery machine BERNINA 700 with the BERNINA CutWork Tool
  • Download the free file in EXP: Sure you can! Oval hoop cutwork
  • Embroidery stabilizer: you could use a double sheet of newspaper, or stitch leftover patches of embroidery stabilizer together for this project.

Start embroidering the positive quote.

The first embroidery object gives you 2 horizontal lines. They help you to position the fabric to the stabilizer.

Next 2 horizontal lines fix the fabric to the stabilizer.

Embroider the text with the contrasting colour embroidery thread.


Use the cutwork tool to cut out the quote.

Put the cutwork tool in the machine instead of the needle. Take Echo-quilting and CutWork foot # 44C to finish the project with the cutwork tool.
