• Shadow Work Machine Embroidery Monograms

    Create beautiful shadow work embroidery in a fraction of the time it takes to do by hand! All my machine shadow work is created to look like it was created by hand, but it's created in a snap on the machine! Please note: Not all machine shadow work is created like Southern Stitches...I believe mine are unique and most replicate that of hand shadow work. As an heirloom stitcher, I have paid careful attention to the under stitches so that they closely replicate the open herringbone stitch that you would see on hand shadow work. All my machine shadow work designs stitch out beautifully and only a trained eye will be able to tell the difference between hand and machine! Please note you MUST follow my detailed instructions to get the correct results. All machine formats available!
