Wonky is one in a series of 5" whimsical flowers created for hand or machine embroidery. Your download includes the hand embroidery pattern as well as the digitized machine embroidery files in all available formats. There are instructions included for how to modify your stitching to accommodate the loft in the wool successfully. Created for use with wool, it is lovely in velvet, felt or your favorite: cotton.
Wonky comes in two additional formats in addition to the handwork pattern:
1. 3B - Machine applique using a Three Bean stitch to outline the wool: Stitch the wool to the fabric, remove the hoop, trim wool to stitching line and replace hoop in machine for next layer. This is nice if you just want it sewn down by machine or want to add embellishments but don't necessarily want to sew it all down by hand. It's fast and easy.
2. WS - Machine applique using water soluble thread. This stitches an outline running stitch. The steps are the same as #1. When you have finished all of your hand work simply rinse the project to remove the water soluble thread which leaves only your hand work to look at and enjoy.
