Jumbo CAC Crazy Legs Applique Monograms

I finally started digitizing again after our lives were severely disrupted the past 12 months.

I designed this set when we decorated our son's bedroom in our local rugby team's colours.  Each letter is 5 x 7" (130 x 180mm), so it is truly jumbo! 

I added batting to create a 3d effect to the lettering and digitized accordingly.  At the time I embroidered this, my largest hoop was the 5 x 7", so I embroidered each letter separately!

You can find the lower case set here , as well as the upper case and numbers .  The punctuation set is available here and contains 20 different symbols.

The complete set is for sale for 35$ and you can get it here.




 
I embroidered the cheetah head in 14 separate hooping's with my 5 x7 " hoop.  As it is copy protected,  I can't sell it though.  The cheetah paw print is available here
