Flared Tealight Lanterns

This set includes six files to make two variations of the three different lanterns (for a total of 6 lanterns) in the hoop:  the lanterns can be made with or without the mix ‘n match leaves draping from the bottom.  Without the leaves, the lanterns are completed in one hooping (11,000 – 14,000 stitches for each lantern;  4.7”x6.6”); the optional leaves are stitched in a second small hooping (5,000 – 7,000 stitches for each set of leaves 4.5”x3.6”).

The lanterns works very well using a thin semi-transparent cotton challis, with matching organza/tulle leaves.  Most fabrics work well for this project, lightweight silks could look gorgeous, particularly sheer or semi-sheer fabrics so that the light glows through.

These tealights work great with hotfix crystals for some extra sparkle!

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