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.
This stand alone design is so simple, but stunning. I've made 10 of them.
With your 5x7 hoop you can create a Sunflower - 1 hooping 13 by 12 cms
3 hoopings 20 by 18 cms
With your 6x10 hoop you can create a Sunflower - 3 hoopings 26 by 24 cms
With your 8x8 hoop you can create a Sunflower - 1 hooping 20 by 18 cms
I've also included instructions to make the Table Topper
Then I went crazy! I Made a plastic bag holder and tissue cover. I’m using the small 5x7 flowers as coasters – the girls want me to make another large sunflower to use as placemats, and I want to make the Toaster cover and Towel Topper. They would also look cute on a cushion, or even T-Shirt or Skirt for a little girl. . I’m hooked!
While we do not have a dedicated video for this, we do have step-by-step instructions for our Seashell design which features techniues similar to this.
