I used your pattern on the bodice of a dress for my daughter. It tuned out beautifully. Thank you!

Frequently asked questions:

FAQ: Do you do custom embroidering?
Answer: To actually do the embroidery if you do not have an embroidery machine, I recommend an embroidery shop such as Midwest Embroidery.
I would provide the design and they would stitch it out on anything you desire. It would cost about $15 for the 4 inch heart to be stitched out once. It is a very intricate design with 7 colors. I have it on several shirts. I just do not have a commercial embroidery machine that can do rapid stitchouts with automatic thread changes to make it cost effective for me to embroider items. I would have to charge at least double with my machine since it's much slower and needs attendance at the stitching. Midwest embroidery uses the EXP format which is included in the zip file you download after purchasing my designs. Please check with the embroidery shop you plan to use for the proper file format prior to purchase to see if it available.

FAQ: Do you do custom digitizing?
Answer: I am not yet retired from my day job, so I do this for fun. Unless your desire is pertinent to my theme, such as Kashubian embroidery, I think you would be better off with another digitizer.

FAQ: Are these sew-on patches?
Answer: No, these are designs for computerized embroidery machines. You must have a computerized embroidery sewing machine to use these designs.

FAQ: Are these patterns for hand embroidery?
Answer: No, these are not full size patterns with instructions that can be used for hand embroidery. You must have an embroidery machine for these designs.

FAQ: Do you have any finished items?
Answer: Yes, I have some embroidered towels/wash clothes and banners. Look in the section labelled "Embroidered Items."

FAQ: How are your designs organized?
Answer: I organize them by the hoop size that fits them. I use both millimeter size and inches.
