Special Request of the Week

Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design suggestions. Watch this space for the Special Request of the Week, where a customer's design idea goes from our inbox to the digitizing board. This week's request is from Sue, who suggested sketched medleys of Long-haired and Short-haired Chihuahuas.

The smallest dog breed, the Chihuahua is known for its saucy expression and great intelligence. They move gracefully, have impressive determination and bravery, and make excellent city dogs because of their low-exercise lifestyle. Add a sketch of Chihuahuas to towels, tote bags, and shirts for big-time fun and fashion!
