This partial in the hoop project uses a pre-made 12×16″ pillow form. Some basic machine sewing is required to complete this project . The pillow is completed with a Velcro closure in the back. This closure is completely done in the hoop. A total of two hoopings are required. The center of the pillow front is motif quilted and the borders are attached during the embroidery process. You may use a strip pieced border, as shown, or just make the side borders from one fabric. Instructions for strip piecing are included. Ricrac is also part of the embroidery. There is room for personalization of the pillow. You will also receive the pillow with the design centred, so no name insertion is needed. In all, you are getting 3 stitch files (Velcro closure; front with design centred; design off center to facilitate name insertion.) Our Carabelle Â¾” as well as Twinkle Star Â¾” fit the name space (sold separately).
