This Bloom free pattern comes with full instructions to make a wall hanging measuring 21″ square.
Also included are the appliqué templates for “BLOOM” to transfer to the paper side of Sulky Perfect Appliqué. Remember to transfer them backwards to the word reads correctly when fused to the fabric.
You’ll also find two pattern pages to print directly onto Sulky Stick ‘n Stitch™ Stabilizer. Set your printer to the “draft” or lowest ink setting, and then print those pages only onto the fabric-like side of the stabilizer. Cut out the embroidery templates, leaving a slight border beyond the design. Then stitch through all layers, using the Sulky Cotton Petites™ Thread in the colors listed on the pattern.
Easily change up the backing to turn this wall hanging into a pillow, too!
