Embroidery designs that combine yarn with embroidery stitches to create lofty realistic texture on a small scale for a mug rug or for a special doll rug.    A special foot is required for this technique.  For more information on the presser feet available for this technique, download the information from this page

The yarn you choose will need to slide easily through the opening in the couching foot that fits your machine.  I have successfully used I Love This Cotton, Peaches & Creme, and Caron Bliss yarns; for the Mug Rugs, I prefer the first two.  For a better look at the texture, click the pictures below.  Sizing information is below the pictures.

Varietgated yarns yield interesting stripe patterns and variegated threads create interest in the fringe.​ 

​These designs consist of electronic files for your embroidery machine.  You will need a couching foot specific to your machine and yarn to create them as shown.

Formats included are ART6, DST, EXP, JEF, HUS, PES, VIP, VP3 and XXX.
​Files will be sent within 24 hours of purchase.  If you do not find your files, please first check your spam box, then contact Jane@DesignedByJane.com.
