The design is for the 5x7 hoop and up and is made in just 7 hoopings. Every component of the suitcase is made in the hoop and the suitcase is assembled mostly in the hoop as well. There will be a 5 minute assembly at the end with a bit of hot glue to secure some remaining tabs. You can pack an entire overnight change of clothes for the doll: dress, shoes, socks, underwear. The suitcase even has velcro closure, a carry handle, a beautiful floral motif on the front, applique heart on the rear, strapping, with the lid opening and closing easily. It is even lined inside.

Resizing Embroidery Designs:
Because our embroidery designs come in multiple sizes, we do not recommend resizing our designs. Resizing a design can result in unpredictable results. They cannot be enlarged or shrunk down and still stitch out in the same quality as was originally digitized. And this is why our embroidery designs come in multiple sizes.
