Templates for applique and a placement guide can be found in the Printer Friendly Version below.

INSTRUCTIONS

Using a light source, transfer all the embroidery lines to your fabric. Print and cut out applique templates, adding ¼” seam allowance if needed for needle turn applique. I embroidered all the snowflake lines with a single strand of floss using an outline stitch. The hat brim and the mitten cuffs were stitched using two strands of floss. NOW I APPLIQUED ALL MY PATTERN PIECES IN PLACE. Using a light source, transfer the scarf fringe, hat and mitten ties to your background fabric. Scarf, Hat and mitten ties were stitched using a lazy chain stitch. I added French Knots to the tips of all snowflakes and hat ties now. This will help anchor the larger pieces to the background fabric.

There's a cute little label block for you, too!
