In the hoop projects are very popular. They require little or no other sewing once the embroidery is completed. My latest addition to my STORE is a toy OWL. The owl is embroidered, up to the last colour. Then another piece of fabric is laid over the embroidery and the last colour is stitched. This is both the construction line and the cutting line. After removing from the hoop the owl is cut out just inside the cutting line. Excess stabiliser is removed and the seam allowances are trimmed and clipped where necessary. All that is left to do then is to turn the owl through the gap in the seam, stuff it and then slip stitch the opening closed. This owl has been very popular so I am going to follow up with some similar toys. Keep an eye out for them.
Use as an ornament and choose your own colours to match your decor. Make several to create an impact. If making for a child use their favourite colours. This owl would be a good product for craft markets and stalls at fairs, and as with all my designs you are free to use it for this purpose. I only ask that you do not sell or give away the actual design file.
To find the design for this owl click on Store on the menu at the top, Click on Single Designs and then “In The Hoop”. Then Click on the picture of the Owl for more details regarding formats and size etc.
