In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Design much larger than your hoop.
Our Large Seashell is made in three hooping’s - joined easily in-the-hoop like a Jig-saw.
The perfect design for a sea themed room or Beach House.
Having a Beach Party? How cute would these look as Drink Coasters for your Cocktails!!
The Design is completely reversable – use matching bobbin thread
- 5x7 Hoop 22 by 21cm – 9 by 8 inch
- 6X10 Hoop 31 by 29cm – 12 by 11 inch
- 8X8 Hoop 29 by 27cm – 11.5 by 11 inch
- 8x10 Hoop 33 by 30cm – 13 by 12 inch
Kay from Kay's Cutz loved Kay's (confusing isn't it) Hold All design, so has very kindlly shared her video of not only how to make the Large Seashell in the hoop, but has also included the added steps required to make the Sea Shell Hold All.

How cute is the 'hold all' Kay made using the Shell design
I just LOVE our Kreative Kiwi Group - you take a simple design and make 'something wonderful'

Mary Beth's made her very cute Utensil Holder by stitching the small Sea Shell Coaster, folding in half, and stitching down the sides - Great idea Mary Beth!!
I know I am always amazed by your creativity, but when I saw these photos on the group it was just Wow!!
Maggie used our Large Shell on this AMAZING Mermaid costume for her little Mermaid
Maggie writes "I made this for a Little Sea Princess who turned 4 this week-end using Kreative Kiwi's large shell design. I used the 5x7 size for both the bodice and tailfin. The tailfin also has a shell on the back making the outfit pretty on both front and back."
Isn't this absoutely amazing!!
We've had another great idea for using this Sea Shell design
