*Stitch Counts and Layouts may vary slightly with the different sizes and formats.
**The Feltie version uses the bean stitch instead of the satin stitch as the outline for making this design out of felt. There is a placement stitch that you should do first on the stabilizer. This is where you should place your base felt. Before each piece of “applique” there will be a placement stitch, to show where to place the fabric followed by a triple bean stitch, to tack it down. Trim the fabric close without cutting the stitches. The final outline stitch should be done after you place another piece of felt on the back of the hoop to cover all of your stitches. The final outline stitch is done in 2 pieces for if you want to stuff the design to make an ornament and hand stitch it closed or you can continue the very last piece to make it a felt design.
