Kiss Me, I'm Irish Embroidery File

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways 
 I completed a few more prototypes for my embroidery file that I used for my mug rug instructions.   I finally gave up on the lip liner for my embroidered lips.  I just could not get it on straight.  However, I did get the letters to stitch out sooo much better.  My second try, they stitched out so well, it took an hour to stitch out the design.  LOL

So, here is the 3rd stitch out.  Only took 30 minutes.  I only tested it out on the .jef file format.  I have included several different file types in the .zip file available for download.  They are:  dst, exp, hus, jef, pcs, pes, shv, vip, vp3, and xxx.  It did not save to the .sew format since it said it was outside the hoop size.  Also, please keep in mind that I have not tested all the other different formats so, I would test it out first.


I use MediaFire for my downloads.  Here is a link to download the zip file that includes all the embroidery formats and the layout pdf.
Please let me know how you make out with the file.  It's nice size for a mug rug.   The final file fished at 4.45 in length and 4 inches in height.  It would probably look great on a child's shirt or even on a hand towel too!

Enjoy!!

  10. Hi Trish - Poor little Yorkie! Let us know how she is getting along. I can't bear to see my loved ones, pets, included, sick and suffering. It's hard to get through it. I don't machine embroider but I am a tireless hand embroiderer. I would love one of the Kiss Me I'm Irish thingies. I hope you'll stop by my page and see my Irish post for St. Paddy's Day...and a peek at the embroidery. Oh, I envy you with the machine embroidery. It looks so fun! I'm a new follower, too. Thanks for letting us visit.
