Dalmatian Photo Stitch Design
Sometimes called a Fire Engine dog, this Dalmatian is handsome and clever. The tradition of the Dalmation being associated with fire engines goes back over a century. When a fire alarm sounded, the Dalmatians would run out of the firehouse, barking to let bystanders know that they should get out of the way because the firefighters' wagon would soon come roaring by. Once the wagon was out on the street, the Dalmatians would run beside it. Today they are mainly prized for being loyal pets.
This photostitch type design needs good stabilising and for best results always use top quality threads. This design was done with Sulky Rayon. It comes in a number of formats: Hus, Jef, Pes, Vip, Sew, Xxx. The colour chart is also in the zip file. For a result that's the same as the picture, always use the colour chart and not the colours that show in your software as different software can show different colours. This is a design for the 5 x 7 (130 x 180) hoop.
This is digitised with PE Design 8 which results in a Pes file. I then convert them to other formats in Embird. Please follow the colour chart for the colours used as formats other than Pes may not show the correct colours.
As with all the designs on this site you can use this design for your personal projects. You can sell or give away items with these designs on them. The original design remains the property of Sew Lush and may not be given away, loaned or sold.
