This is such a sweet freestanding lace alphabet set. I found it fun to get back into free standing lace for a change. The size of the letters is nice as they make a sweet tag or even a tree ornament.
My favorite thing was to add rhinestones for some extra bling!
I’m going to warn you right now…I’m on a rhinestone kick and you will be seeing me add rhinestones to more of my designs throughout 2018. Love them!
There is no placement for the rhinestones. Just add as many or few as you like.
The rhinestones shown here are 3 mm “hot fix” rhinestones. That is what I just happened to have on hand. I used clear drying fabric glue as I feel trying to heat set the rhinestones would cause the polyester embroidery thread to melt. FYI, I think a 5 mm rhinestone would look even prettier.
You can get rhinestones at any craft store and I have also purchased from “Rhinestone Genie” and “Heat Transfer Warehouse” with good results/good customer service.
As an FYI, I stitched the letters on two layers of water soluble stabilizer. Then I didn’t over-rinse the stabilizer out. I wanted to maintain a bit of the stiffness.
You can find the Modern Script freestanding lace alphabet set HERE in Etsy and HERE in Zibbet.
I want to make sure you see the free alphabet and to remind you that the letter changes weekly. Be sure to grab it each week for FREE! After that, the letters do go up for sale in the Embroidery It Zibbet Shop. Today the letter “I” has been released. You may get it HERE.
Offering you the free letters is my way of saying “Thank You” for visiting and your support. I appreciate each of you so much!
Also, just a small head’s up. Remember last year’s Birthday Party? Embroidery It turns 3 in just one month! I’m working on a little some’in-some’in just for you that you won’t want to miss.
Yesterday and through the night we have received 10 1/2″ of the fluffy white stuff and it’s still coming down. BRRRR…. Everything is shut down. It is a great day to spend at the embroidery machine.
Yesterday the large pennant flag was released and I’ve been placing them around my home for a bit of warm spring touches. This one is made in your 5 x 7 hoop. I also created a YouTube video that shows one being made. It is a quick and easy in-the-hoop project!
A quick note to remind you to grab the letter X is you have not yet. Just scroll down to the bottom of the home page for the free design. It will be replaced on Wednesday with the letter Y. We are almost finished with this set!
Here is a sneak peek at the next free alphabet set. Quilters, you are gonna love this!
I’m typing this on a very cold and blustery morning. Snow covers the ground and I keep replenishing the bird seed in the feeder for all the hungry creatures. Even the squirrels come to nibble on the ground what the birds drop. Precious sight to see the bright red of the cardinals against the snow.
While my home is decorated for Valentine’s day, it is time to start thinking ahead as the next holiday is St. Patrick’s Day. With St. Patrick’s Day, we know spring will be just around the corner.
To get us ready for St. Patrick’s Day, the Banner Shamrock will add lively color to our home. Pair it with some banner alphabet letters to make a welcoming sign. It is made to be the perfect size to go with the letters.
An important thing to note…The buttonholes are the last color to stitch in the design. This means it is easy to eliminate them as you don’t have to stitch them. By doing this, you can use this shamrock design as an applique on a shirt, tote bag or towels!
There are two designs in this set. One where the shamrock stem points left and the other right so choose which works best for your project.
Stay warm friends and have some fun stitching some green for a change.
You are getting your homes all spiffed up in beautiful colors of golds reds and browns. Fall is such a gorgeous time of year.
To help with your decorating needs The Banner Acorn has been released. It is designed to coordinate with the Banner Letters which are available in the Etsy store. You can get the Banner Acorn HERE.
The banner items can be used to decorate your front door, office, classroom, dorm room and camper. They are a freestanding applique that you can use any fabric to match your room. The button holes are the final stitch stop and can be eliminated so the acorn becomes an applique which is perfect for a fall hot pad or placemats and more!
As for me, I’ve been spending time doing some fall cleaning and adding my fall décor touches here and there in our home which gives it a feeling of warmth and coziness on these cooler days.
