I made this room sign as an "in-the-hoop" project. Because I work on commercial machinery and my biggest hoop is 15.5" X 20.5", I was able to do it all in one hooping. I embroidered the organza flower petals separately, then assembled and added it. Matching buttons finished it off. The dowel isn't curved -- I just sew better than I take pictures
I stitched this out in m 4 X 4 hoop, then pieced it together on my regular sewing machine. The colors in the photo are off a little -- the pink thread matches the pink, dotted fabric. I'm a better sewer than photographer.
