What measures almost 20” tall and almost 18” wide, would look lovely hanging on a front door or wall or as a table topper, is a wonderful holiday symbol, and is done completely on the embroidery machine with no additional sewing required? The answer is this in-the-hoop “tree”-mendous Christmas tree! This design set requires a 6×10 hoop and consists of 11 design files. The tree features both front and lining fabrics and a firm fleece batting for body, and each of the parts of the tree, star, and trunk is adorned with different motifs, all giving a trapunto effect. The pieces are joined together in the hoop and given a rich satin edge for a truly elegant final project. At that point, your creativity can take over with additional adornments if you wish. So go ahead, turn down the AC, put on a Christmas CD, and start on your Christmas-giving list, but make one for yourself too!
