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 You will also get a stitchmap which will show the suggested thread colors and a picture of each step your machine will do when stitching out the design. You will receive all6 letters shown for the 4×4 hoop! Each letter is its own design file so you get6 files. These are completely in the hoop, no extra sewing required! Each snowflake comes with its own letter on it and the file will stitch the button holes and have a tack down step for the backing of the snowflake so the stitches are sealed inside. All you need is to add a piece of ribbon to feed through the button holes to hang up your banner!
