Machine Embroidery Design FormatsAll designs come as a zip archive file that when unzipped or extracted contain the following embroidery file formats:
DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PES, SHV, VIP, VP3 and XXX.
There will also be an "Instructions" folder that contains a PDF file that has step by step instructions with many photos to help with your embroidery design.
Add a seasonal touch to your kitchen with this quilted potholder and towel. The background behind the potholder’s center design is stipple quilted. The truck and window are appliqued. The borders of the potholder are applied during the embroidery process. Thorough and detailed instructions as well as many photos guide you through the process of making this project. Your download includes the potholder with and without the center design. Also included is the towel design. There are a total of 3 stitch files in your download. Closure of the back of the potholder can be accomplished by closing the opening with hand stitches or by fusing.
No additional sewing machine stitching required (except for loop).
