Reminiscent of days gone by, these vintage styled crinoline lady designs are sure to sweeten any project you apply them to - quilts, totes, wearables, table linens and home décor! Simple bean stitch outlines with a few candlewick details mimic hand embroidery.
This set contains a total of 27 designs. There are six fancily dressed ladies in two sizes each—one that will fit most 5x7 hoops and one that will fit most 6x10 hoops. There are also six coordinating curved border pieces sized for the 5x7 hoop and one longer daisy border (not curved) which is 11.07” long and will fit in most 8x12 hoops. Combine three or more to create a longer border to go across the end of a pillowcase or tea towel below your belles! Two basket designs are also included; each will fit in most 4x4 hoops. There are two oval-shaped floral wreaths included in two sizes as well. One will fit most 8x12 hoops and the other will fit most 9.5x14 hoops. The 5” belles will fit in the 8x12 sized floral wreath. The 6” belles will fit into the 9.5x14 sized wreath. Also included is an oval scalloped frame sized for both the 8x12 and 9.5x14 hoop. The large scalloped frame will hold either of the two 8x12 floral wreaths and a 5” Crinoline Belle. Or you can frame just a belle - the 5” one fits nicely in the 8x12 scallop frame and the 6” one in the 9.5x14 scallop frame. This frame can be used to make a free-standing, finished edge doily in the hoop. Instructions to do so are included!
In addition to the designs, the zip file download also includes PDF instructions and design templates to print.
NOTE - The two coasters shown below featuring the flower basket designs from this collection were made using frame designs from the Frame It set. The pink edged cutwork shown on one of the tea towels below is from the Scallop Cutwork Borders set.
