Machine Embroidery – St. Patrick’s Day Applique Shamrock and More!
I’m having a little St. Patrick’s Day fun in doing this machine embroidery applique shamrock. All designs from Needle Little Embroidery. I did this on a tote bag from the Dollar Tree! The applique fabric is glitter fabric from Hobby Lobby. It comes in cuts 8 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ and is found by the cut felt. $1.47 for the piece minus my 40% coupon. It is a cotton fabric that has glitter bonded to the surface of it and it embroiders quite nicely. I think it would be perfect material for an applique Christmas tree or tags on Christmas presents. With its shine it would make some great Christmas ornaments, or how about Easter tree ornaments made with pastel glittered sheets. I’m really thinking I will go back and pick up some more of this fun fabric in other colors!
The final simple secret…Adhesive backed cork board, found in the scrapbook section of your craft store. This makes a perfect coaster. Note: I stitched the blanket stitch around the designs when they were finished.
