    FAQ About Patterns

    Question: Where do I find the download I purchased?
    As soon as you make a purchase, you are directed to a Thank You page which will have a link to download your pattern.
    We also email you the 'Thank You' to your email inbox which includes the link to download your pattern. Please check your spam/junk box if you do not receive this.
    Question: I've clicked the download link and nothing happens, what should I do?
    Chances are the pattern is downloading in the background. Give it a moment then check your file app (iphone) or download folder (in My Files or File Manager on android) to see if the file is there. If it isn't, before trying again, try the suggestions in the trouble downloading question below.
    Question: I'm having trouble downloading the pattern, is there anything I should do?
    Yes, the most important thing to do is turn off any popup blocker. Popup blockers prevent the download window from being seen by you, yet we will not know about it so each time you try, it will appear to us that you have attempted to download the pattern.
    Here is a full list of things to try:
    • Ensure that no pop up blockers are enabled
    • Ensure you are using a stable connection - wifi is better than phone data
    • Clear your cache and cookies
    • Try a different web browser, as well as private windows to rule out any browser issues
    • Ensure the web browser is up to date and that the latest device software is up to date
    • Try another device, like another computer, tablet, or mobile phone
    Question: What if I exceed my download tries?
    Don't fear, we will always make sure you receive your purchased pattern. If your download link expires, simply email us and we will send you a new link.

    This ebook is great for learning skills of dimensional work along with the basics of machine embroidery. The petals of the poppies and leaves are hanging free to give a 3-D effect of a real plant and the embroidery gives them character and shape. Also available as a pattern.

    • 4" flower color (poppy)
    • 4" light green (leaves)
    • 12" dark green (leaves, border, binding)
    • Scrap of black (flower center)
    • 12" background fabric A (diamond and outer border)
    • 6" background fabric B (background triangles)
    • FOUR 2" squares in scrap fabric
    • 16" backing
    • 16" compressed batting or similar fine batting
    • 8" fusible web
    • Small piece of interfacing, approx. 2" x 4"
    • Matching and contrasting machine embroidery threads for flowers and leaves. I have chosen four, one the color of the poppy petals, one the color of the poppy centers, and two for each green.
    • Small seed beads
    • Neutral colored thread for piecing the background
    • Suitable thread for quilting (I prefer to use invisible nylon thread on the top with Metrolene overlocking thread for the bobbin) Other threads are acceptable.
    • Sewing Machine and accessories
    • 1/4" machine foot or another method of measuring 1/4" seams (these are mentioned in lesson two)
    • Walking foot and darning foot (optional, but helpful)
    • Machine and hand stitching needles
    • 10" tear-away or similar removable stabilizer, preferably dark in color
    • Pencil or fabric marker
    • Cutting mat, rotary cutter, and rulers
    • Small very sharp scissors, pins, and safety pins
    • Baking paper
    • Iron
    • Template Plastic (optional)
    • Quilt sandwich (a layer of two pieces of muslin with batting in between, safety-pinned together)
