Applied Bugs

Price: $18.00

Butterflies fluttering and bumblebees hovering – that’s what Applied Bugs are all about! This set includes designs to create 5 different bugs: two butterflies, a dragonfly, a bee, and a moth.

These designs are specially digitized to be 3D! The wings are stitched separately on sheer fabrics and applied to your projects with the body design of each bug. (Check out our silk organza fat quarters! Also, Farmhouse Fabrics has lovely cotton organdy!)

These designs can be made elegant or cute, and they’re a perfect complement to the Petite Applied Flowers designs (featured along with the butterflies on the baby pinafore shown). They also pair beautifully with the May Hope Rise design, as shown on our sample wall hanging. The large butterflies and dragonflies on that wall hanging are from this set; the smaller ones are from Sweet Stems.

These designs are sized for the 4×4 hoop.
