    Question Pj Designs Snowman embroidery - anyone make this??

    I am totally smitten with this Crazy Legs Snowman. It just makes me smile
    http://www.embroidery.com/product.as...661&shopstop=1

    I'm planning on ordering it but I am curious to know if anyone has made this before... how do you hang it? I guess that's my biggest question. It doesn't say much about how it's hung but it looks pretty stiff and up against that door so it must hang somehow...

    Maybe when you get the pattern they will tell you more on how to get the legs stiff ? Can't wait to see yours

    I know they used sticks for the arms.. but the shoes look like they are made out of plastic. I have emailed their customer service. I hope to find out about the shoes soon so that I can place my order. I already have the tree design and am planning to finally make that this year...

    The legs are sewn together but joined to the snowman body while you are stitching out the snowman.

    Bummer about the hoop size. This is one of those times that I am so happy that I have that big hoop. I don't use it often but it's times like these that I'm glad I have it.

    I still have not heard from their customer service about the shoes :'( I'm really bummed. I sent them a second email yesterday afternoon. Maybe I'll hear back from them today. I'll let you all know what they say.

    I really do wish that designers would put in their descriptions things that you might need that are out of the norm. sigh. Fortunately today is not the last day of the sale... it goes through the end of the year. That's one long sale but I'm grateful that is is that long.. on the flipside.. I am pretty sure that I want to go ahead and make these for teachers so even if she used some sort of weird plastic thing I know I'll be able to design up some boots or something instead. It will be fun

    I didn't see a phone number for PJ's in the Hoop Designs. The only contact info I found was an email form.
    I did just get an email back finally. The shoes are part of the design. They used shiny fabric to make them. I'm good to go now and will go ahead and get the design. Hopefully I'll be able to start working on them the week after we move. I'll be running out of time for teacher gifts if I wait too long!

    I heard back - and the shoes are not plastic. They used shiny fabric. The shoe design is included. That is a relief. I am definitely going to buy it - however I won't be starting on mine until after we move and get settled in. I figure it will be in a few weeks. I'll post back once I have my first ones made. I'm probably going to kick them all out at once - one right after the other this way I don't have to constantly change the embroidery design. I can just do each file over and over until I get all the pieces I need then move on to the next piece... it will seem like it is taking forever but it will be quicker in the end
