Feather Lantern

This fun feathery hanging lantern is created in a single hooping using organza and/or tulle and a small scrap of cotton.  It is stitched onto water-soluble stabilizer, dried flat, and assembled using a few brads and there is no additional hand or machine sewing.  The lantern holds a single LED tea light and it can be created using one to three colours of sheer fabric.  It is created applique-style and most of the applique cutting is done outside the hoop after the design is finished stitching so it is very easy. 

When complete, the lantern measures about 4.5” tall with a circumference of about 5”.  The design file measures 5.5” x 7.8” (138 x 197 mm) and has 15,725 stitches and 6 colour stops.

Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
