To go along with the large peacocks the collection has included lots of feathers and smaller motif’s so you can further embellish any project!
Peacock Tile Scene
One of the best ways to showcase big beautiful embroidered art is tile scenes. As you know, peacocks are large birds and it is very hard to get all of the detail from their feathers into a 6″x10″ hoop, so we decided to create a jumbo scene. The large scene allows all of the beautiful detail of the peacock to really come through with thread. This is a 20 block tile scene that comes in three different sizes, a small size for the 5″x7″ hoop a medium size for the 6″x10″ hoop and a large size for the 7″x12″ hoop. A premium feature of this tile scene, the background stippling, is built into the embroidery design so you don’t have to add it later. As far as tile scenes go, this one has among the least amount of colors in it and uses the least amount of fabric. Enjoy this beautiful collection and it is easy to embroider with our step-by-step tutorial.
The Dragonflies 2 collection is filled with a variety of colorful designs. There are 10 different dragonflies using a kaleidoscope of colors; each dragonfly is digitized differently for a unique look. The jumbo applique designs are for the 6″x10″ and 7″x12″ hoop. We then created 12, 5″x7″ stitched dragonflies. There are also 4 large scenes as well as over a dozen complimentary design elements.
Tiger Tile Scene
Tigers are the largest members of the cat family and are renowned for their power and strength. Imagine walking up on this beautiful creature in the jungle!
