I have been "crafting" since I was a child. It seems there's always another project I'm ready to start--and I finish quite a few of them too. I love knitting, sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery.
Malcolm Gladwell talked about mastery of a skill in his book Outliers: The Story of Success. He said, "In fact, by the age of twenty, the elite performers (violinists) had each totaled ten thousand hours of practice". I'm still working on my ten thousand hours of knitting, sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery--and loving every minute of it.
Learning new things every day and sharing that knowledge with others makes me happy.
These beautiful applique designs are perfect for personalizing projects like banners or bunting for children's rooms, celebrations, and holidays. They can also be used to personalize quilts and placemats.
The applique shapes are cut using traditional machine embroidery applique by stitching placement and tackdown lines and trimming the fabric to fit the stitching lines. The simple stylized triangle shape is quick and easy to trim, and there are parallel tackdown stitching lines that are 0.5 mm apart so that you can trim the fabric perfectly.
This set includes all 26 letters of the English alphabet as well as a blank banner so that you can add any design you want to coordinate with the banner message you create. The applique stitch used is a circle motif. There is no applique stitch at the top of the banner. This assures that you can line the banners up accurately and can use a coordinating ribbon, rickrack, or fabric for "hanging" your banners. Closeups of the stitches are shown in the photos.
File names, design measurements, and technical information are provided as well as charts of stitching order. Design files include file formats: hus, jef, pec, pes, sew, and vip. If you need additional formats, please contact us.
