- No Show Mesh Cut Away Stabilizer: enough for 45 hoopings
- Batting: Can use crib to a twin size package

5x7 size: 1 yard for Inner blocks, 1 yard for Middle blocks, 1 Yard for Outer blocks
6x10 sizes: 1.5 yards for Inner blocks, 1.5 yards for Middle blocks, 1.25 yards for Outer blocks
8x12 size: 2.25 yards for Inner blocks, 2 yards for Middle blocks, 1.5 yards for Outer blocks
- SF101 interfacing: We recommend adding SF101 to the background fabric to prevent puckering when stitching out the detailed blocks, so enough for 45 hoopings.

- 1” Double Fold Bias Tape (5x7 size: 39" long, 6x10 sizes: 48” long, 8x12 size: 56” long)

Bernina Users: please note neither of the 6x10 sizes fit in the Midi (165x265) oval hoop.
Note regarding the Outer Blocks: Only fifteen blocks are needed for the outer layer of the tree skirt, however nineteen blocks are included with purchase. Three words have alternate spelling options (Savior/Saviour, Immanuel/Emmanuel, Counselor/Counsellor) so be sure to select your preferred spelling when stitching out the blocks. Another block named Blank is included -- it has swirls but no text for those who wish to leave the outer blocks blank or wish to customize the block differently. Font Used: What a Time.

These are digital machine embroidery designs…NOT a finished product. You must own an embroidery machine & know how to unzip your files and transfer files to your machine.
Our designs are manually digitized and test stitched before release. For best results we recommend stitching our designs unaltered on projects hooped with stabilizer appropriate for the material being used. We cannot guarantee results when our designs have been modified in software or non-traditional hooping methods are used. We highly recommend doing a test stitch on an altered design before putting it on a valuable blank.That being said, we are often asked for a recommendation for embroidery editing software for customizing purposes:
Designs by JuJu recommends the user friendly Embrilliance embroidery editing software to type out fonts in BX format, combine/merge designs, personalize and customize projects and more! Check out their programs Essentials, Enthusiast, StitchArtist , and Thumbnailer to learn more about their other useful, fun and easy features!
