All designs will download instantly after payment! Design files are downloaded as a zip file. You will need to be able to open the zip file and extract the files you need for your embroidery machine. You will also need the software/hardware to transfer the design to your embroidery machine in order to use this file. The zip file will contain the above machine formats each insides its own folder This is an IN THE HOOP design that can be made completely in the hoop, there is no extra sewing needed. This comes with the chocolate chip cookie, lollipops, peppermint, and gingerbread girl. These pieces are made to have a magnet in them so your pieces will stick together, but you can make them without magnets too! They stitch out jsut as perfect with no magnet pouch! It takes 5 of the 1/2 or/4 inch diameter round magnets, 1/4 inch or thinner. This must be a fairly strong magnet to go through the fabric, the ones from michaels crafts do NOT work, i got mine at lowes! The magnets are stitched in between the two layers of fabric, so pretty darn safe for kids, but i dont suggest you give this to little ones that still try to put things in their mouths! And please be sure to check the food before you let your kids play with it to be sure they have not exposed the magnets in some way, we want to keep them safe! Also, if you dont want the magnets, you can just skip that step! No need to use them, its fun even if they don’t stick together! Step by step and very detailedinstructions with pictures are included!
