Bookmark with Welsh dragon / two sizes/two variations/5x7 and 8x8 hoop

SKU: 1536tm


Although it seems to be a simple design, the design is quite difficult to digitise and you really need to follow the rules for embroidering lace - that is : secure the stabilizer in the hoop very well and also use a very good quality stabilizer, have the correct thread tightening settings for embroidery, do not embroider more than 1 design in the hoop that is shown in the description.

This is a machine embroidery design not a patch. You need to transfer the files to your embroidery machine to use it.

For these types of designs it is very important to use the same color for the bobbin thread as the top thread - i.e. if you embroider the red thread - it is also necessary to use the red bobbin thread. If you do not do this, the design will not be the same on both sides.

The designs should be embroidered with water soluble stabilizer. We use Vilene water soluble stabilizer-If it’s too thin use two layers. Use a size 11 or 75/11 sharp sewing needle and 40 weight rayon or polyester thread. For my designs, I mostly use embroidery threads from Gunold - SU rayon (sulky rayon), Isacord or Brother embroidery threads.
