What an adorable gift with the sweetest saying for your best girlfriends!!
The pattern is designed to fit a full size spiral notebook (an 8" x 10 1/2" spiral notebook - bound on the side) that you can find at many of the big box stores. I found mine at Walmart.
I taught this pattern at my retreat a few weeks ago. Look at all the adorable versions below.
Please note this is NOT an in the hoop project but does require a minimum size embroidery hoop of 5" x 7" and a sewing machine. The girlfriend machine embroidery design is part raw edge applique, part fill and other machine embroidery stitching. The embroidery design measures 4.96" x 6.90"; has 16117 stitches and 13 Color Stops. It is included in the following formats JEF, PES, HUS, EXP and DST only.
