Fall is nigh!

Wing Needle Lily

If you do not have a wing needle or are afraid to use one then use a size 18 jeans needle. The effect will not be as obvious but still very pretty.

Wing Needle Lily

Sewn on Cotton Pillowcases.

A printable full size template of the pillowcase wavy edge is included with these designs.

A wing needle (WN) emulates pulled thread embroidery, a hand embroidery technique where the threads within the weave of the fabric are pulled over to the side and kept in place with hand stitches. A wing needle does the same thing. The wings on either side of the needle separate the threads within the weave of the fabric and the stitches hold it in place. It gives the appearance of “holes” in the fabric.

Wing needle fills are not something included in my digitizing software. I manually created these fills myself

Padded stitches are not something included in my digitizing software. I manually padded these designs like a master hand embroider pads her stitches. Photos never give enough justice to 3 dimensional embroidery, but I try.

Back of Blouse - Close up

The designs fits the 5x7 hoop. It is also split into two (2) parts to fit the 4x4 hoop. An additional design of just the stem is added for additional possibilities like I used on the back yoke of my shirt.

I also added the full design of the arrangement on the back yoke of my big shirt for those of you who have a 6x10 hoop. This design can be sewn with smaller hoops using the split 4x4 flower design, plus the stem design.
