 Molas are made in the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama by the Kuna Indians.

Traditionally, these designs are made using bold primary colors. Red, black, and orange are the colors primarily used for the background and large applique and reverse applique areas. Other colors often used in smaller areas are lime green, medium (christmas) green, yellow, medium blue, tourquoise, and fuscia, although other colors are used as well.

This set of designs is my interpretation of molas sewn in machine embroidery. I have attempted to recreate them as traditionally as is possible and still be practical for machine embroidery. You are welcome and encouraged to use your own imagination to sew these designs with whatever thread and fabric colors you desire.

My Molas Nouveau series consist of designs for the 4x4 and 5x7 hoops (100 x 100 mm & 125 x 175 mm, respectively). The seven motifs that make up the 4x4 designs actually measure 90 mm square (3.6 inches square) and can be sewn onto smaller articles. If you prefer, assemble of them together to create a larger Mola. The 5x7 designs in this series consist of five unique motifs, with the finished patches measuring 6 ½ x 4 ? inches when finished. Sandwiched two of these together with some cotton felt lining to make the perfect eyeglass case, pen & pencil organizer, or scissors sheath. I've included the mirrored images of all twelve in the series, for a total of 24 design files. In some cases, the mirrored design is subtly different, while in others not so much.

Machine formats included: ART, DST, EMD, EXP, HUS, JEF, PES, VIP, VP3 & XXX.

Design sizes are clearly marked. When ordering, be sure to order designs that will fit in your sewing machine hoop.
As with any software, refunds and exchanges will not be made.
