Prisms le Fleur – See Through Appliques

 ‘Add a touch of flair and a bit of dare to your next machine embroidery project, with Prisms le Fleur.’  

~~~A link is at the bottom of this page to purchase these designs ~~~

It’s been a long time coming! A sequel to Prisms Amour I made in 2004. I made several projects with those designs back in the day. They are so beautiful! I love looking at them or rather through them.

They have been through numerous washes in the washer and dryer and are still holding up quite well.  My husband coined the name prisms for this type design the way that I make them.

With the much larger hoops we are using today I made designs of all sizes and we made projects of all sizes. Back in 2004 most of us were limited to a 4 inch hoop. Progress has been good to those of us in the machine embroidery world these past 16 years.

Prisms le Fleur includes several sizes of designs for most any project whether a small touch of pizazz on a napkin or blouse or larger projects like pillowcases, sheets, table runners. They run anywhere from 4×4 inches to 5×11 inches, with one 11 inch border split in two 4×6 inch sections for smaller hoops

Dee and I have had a grand time making projects with these. Once you get started you can’t quit. Although she did state that sewing them on burlap took a bit more patience to cut out but well worth the effort.

I’ve added several pictures of our projects and the individual designs and details for you to look at located on the product page. So take your time and get a good look.
