For those of you in the Embroidery Bee, the March embroidery designs were available early this morning. You should have received a newsletter in your in-box so be sure to look for it.
This also means the February embroidery designs are now released in the Etsy and Zibbet stores.
The candy holder is a small treat bag, set of 2 designs. As with all club designs, they fit in your 4 x 4 hoop. It is an Easter Treat Bag. One is a bunny and the other an egg which has room for adding a name with a small font. The Tiny Print Alphabet which was also just released fits perfectly inside it.
The Tiny Print Alphabet also includes numbers and four symbols. It is 1/2″ tall and makes a sweet touch on a collar point, a cuff or fits a covered button.
You are my Valentine! In this week’s newsletter there will be a special link for newsletter subscribers to get this free Valentine “Be Mine” snowflake coaster. It is the one way I can share a little love with all of you. Thank you all for your support of Embroidery It.
If you haven’t yet signed up for the newsletter, it’s not too late. Just do so by clicking the link to the right. 🙂 If you do so before Sunday Feb. 12, 2017, you will get the design.
It is super bowl Sunday and I hope your team wins. I must confess though, I’m not a football fan. I’m sure the game will be on in the background, but I’ll be paying more attention to the commercials rather than game itself. 🙂 So if you are like me, you will be spending time at your embroidery or sewing machine and I have a fun new in-the-hoop project just in time for Valentine’s day.
Valentine’s Day Candy Bar Wrappers
There are three designs in the set and are made in your 5 x 7 hoop.
You’re So Tweet
Happy Valentine’s Day
All You Need is Love and a Little Chocolate
You can whip up a bunch of these for all the sweet Valentines in your life and you can have them all done before the football game is over.
You may find them here in the Embroidery It Etsy shop or Zibbet store.
Here is a fun use for the Valentine Mason Jar Lid Alphabet set. The design fits perfectly inside those plastic ornaments which open in half. I got mine at Hobby Lobby and they sell them year round. Guessing they are at the other craft stores as well.
Stitch the design on a lightweight cotton fabric using a light weight stabilizer. I used tear-away. Once the design is stitched out and stabilizer removed, open the ornament and center the design. Then just close the ornament with the other half of it and trim excess fabric away.
Place a small bead of glue around the two halves and add a bit of lace or ribbon. This will hide where the halves meet plus keep it from accidentally popping open.
Add a hanger and bow. Consider adding a sprinkle of glitter or flocking inside the ornament before closing it up. Super cute for gift giving.
Believe me when I tell you the photos don’t do this justice. It turned out adorable.
Have fun with this little project!
Here is another use for the design. Perfect monogram on an infant or child’s shirt. Just add a bow for flair!

In my neck of the woods, the ground is covered in snow and everything is just white, gray and brown. With the Christmas decorations all put away now it all feels so plain. Getting into the studio is like a breath of fresh air as it is full of color and stitching for Valentine’s day is simply cheerful.
Here is the Candy Hearts Coasters which double as a wall decor project. They are made in the 4 x 4 hoop. To turn them into a decor project, just glue them onto ribbon and add a bow. Instructions on this along with lots of photos are included. 4 designs are in the set.
Make them in all different colors so when using as a coaster, each person can easily identify their glass.

Remember these little cuties?
Well, I took two of the flower designs that remind me of mums and did them up again. (There are 4 different flowers and one set of leaves in the set)
For the centers though, I didn’t want to use candy. (although I made one from candy) I started looking through my button stash and couldn’t find any large dark buttons. For me to drive into Grand Rapids is about a 30 minute trip one way. It was time to shop from what I had at home.
I came across a small bag of flat clear glass pebbles that are just over 1″ in diameter. They came from the floral department at either Hobby Lobby or Walmart. I don’t remember any longer. Since you could see right through them and I wanted the flowers to have a dark center I started looking through some scrapbboking paper. I used to be an avid scrapbooker.
I found a dark small print and using clear glue, glued the paper to the bottom of the pebbles and then trimmed around them.
The flowers were embroidered onto fall colored felt. I used dark brown thread on all the flowers and dark green for the leaves. Then the pebbles were glued to the center of the flowers. The flowers were glued onto bamboo sticks and the leaves glued on the sticks as well.
I love how these turned out and how just changing the felt gave them a whole new look. An entire bouquet of machine embroidery flowers were made in about an hour!
Another fun idea would be to glue them onto pens and give them as a gift with a cute notepad!
If you are interested in the flowers, you can find them on Etsy and on Zibbet.
