BFC0120 Under the Sea

Not rated yet
You can use all three panels, or just one to create different size scenes. Or you can combine as many of them as you want to create any size design. You can also experiment with different colors for parts of each design. For example in the 12.5x10.5 example above, I stitched part of the *sea* in browns to create a rock overhang. Because you also receive a 4x4 split version of each background section, even if you have a 4x4 hoop you can create very large designs!
Some of the suggested uses for these designs have been: Tote Bags, Framed Pictures and Wall Hangings, Picture books with the smaller designs done separately and having Tack It on the back so children can make their own scenes, jacket backs with the coordinating designs coming around to the front
bottoms of pants with the fish swimming up the leg - I'm sure you will think of many more!.
How do you decide where to put things or what colors to use?
Print out templates of the different designs, cut them out, and lay them out on your backgrounds. To help decide what colors to use, print out templates of the backgrounds and designs, borrow you kid's or Grand Kid's Crayolas (or better yet buy your "own" new box of Crayolas - love that smell!) and color in the templates until you are happy with the results. Then just follow your colored templates when doing your stitching.
33 designs:  Most for Small hoops, some will require a Medium Hoop. See below for exact sizes.

Below are some other ideas for using these Backgrounds **


The instructions below show you step by step how to combine the above designs into your own unique seascape.
The method I am describing is one I use for most of my designs that need *lining up*. I also use it for split designs.
Hoop your fabric and stitch design BFC120-01 You will notice the small *corner stitches*. These are a large outline stitch that will be easy to remove when you are done. They are not used to put the first three designs together, but are used when you are ready to stitch the overlays.
Print out a paper template of design BFC120-02. Cut out around the outline of the hoop. Then cut out the background from the left side of the design as show in the illustration. Line up this template with the first design that you stitched. Once you have the placement you want, tape down the template
Place the top part of your hoop over the template you have taped onto your fabric. Tape down the hoop onto the fabric and slide the lower part of your hoop your fabric and clamp the hoop together. Because you have fixed the top hoop in the correct placement, you will assure having the right placement for the design. Remove the paper template and stitch design BFC120-02


Print out the template for Design BFC120-03 and repeat the steps above, cutting out the hoop outline and then the left side of the design. Line it up on your fabric and tape it down.
Put the top part of your hoop over the template and put some pieces of tape to hold it down. Slide your lower hoop underneath and clamp together. Stitch design BFC120-03.
Design BFC10-03 stitched out
Layer One completed
Re-hoop your fabric centering the 4 corners stitched out with Design BFC120-01. Load design BFC120-04 and moving the flywheel manually, see if the needle comes down on top of the lower left corner of design BFC120-01
If the needle does not come down in the right place, and your machine allows you to move the design, move the design in right direction and move the flywheel manually. Repeat this process until your needle comes down right on top of the lower left corner stitches
Design BFC120-04 stitched on top of first layer. You can now go on to stitch BFC120-05 and BFC120-06 or while your fabric is hooped, you can add some of the additional designs.
