Stand sold separately.
Part of our Monthly Mini 13 Series. This is a machine embroidery pattern, but there is a traditional applique pattern version of this, too!
This is a 2-part design that features a month header and a cute design. These are intended to be displayed on our custom-designed, made in the USA stand. This kit will include instructions for three (3) individual patterns for the months of January, February, and March. All the files will be located on a single USB memory stick included with the pattern. Please note that this one USB stick contains a TON of information:
All of the embroidery files for SATIIN stitch
All of the embroidery files for BLANKET stitch
All of the PDFs of the pattern for traditional applique (the digital file of the printed pattern you receive)
Detailed, step-by-step instructions for machine embroidery ... these are detailed, specific, and precise instructions that cover 15+ pages. Each step has a color photo and there are no short-cuts or missing details. This is NOT printed for you, so please, please, please read these instructions to help you complete your project!
January's design features a cute snowman holding a darling candy cane near some snow-topped trees. The snowman's nose and candy cane are hand-made buttons that you're going to want to add.
February's design shows our favorite cardinals near a Valentine's Day-themed tree. It's snowy, but we can almost taste the end of winter!
March's design has some good ol' fashioned Irish flair. Luck is spelled out with a horseshoe "U." The butterfly uses a hand-made button for its body.
Machine embroidery files will embroider the button shapes -- the snowman nose, candy cane, and butterfly bodies. So, the buttons are not a must-have item. However, we love the more 3D and tangible look of buttons and always encourage them.
Finally: hoop size. We have designed the MM13 series ME versions to work with 5x7" hoops. This means that anyone can finish these patterns, though it will require double-hooping. So, it's not as convenient and double-hooping doesn't allow for the flip-and-fold, in-the-hoop attachment of the borders. For those with larger hoops, a single hoop project is a breeze and will even include the borders for both header and design.
