Dear Friends,

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.

A Fun Machine Embroidered Valentine Ornament

A Fun Machine Embroidered Valentine Ornament

Machine Embroidered Valentine Monogram ornament

Hi Friends,

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.

Machine Embroidered Valentine Monogram Ornament

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.  Machine Embroidery Alphabet Set Valentine Mason Jar Lid

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!

A Little Valentine’s Day Machine Embroidery Decorating

A Little Valentine’s Day Machine Embroidery Decorating

Dear Friends,

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.

A set of four makes a sweet gift!

You can find them in the Embroidery It Etsy Store and Zibbet Store.

May they bring a little cheer to your day!

Crafting Machine Embroidery and Mixed Media Fall Flowers

Crafting Machine Embroidery and Mixed Media Fall Flowers

embroidery-it-bouquet-1

Dear Friends,

There is nothing better than to spend time crafting and what fun to mix other things with machine embroidery!

emb-it-bouquet-5

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)

embroidery-it-bouquet-17

embriodery-it-bouquet-12

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.

embroidery-it-bouquet-16

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.

embroidery-it-bouquet-15

embroidery-it-bouquet-14

I found a dark small print and using clear glue, glued the paper to the bottom of the pebbles and then trimmed around them.

embroidery-it-bouquet-18

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!

embroidery-it-bouquet-2

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.

Have a beautiful Sunday,embroidery-it-bouquet-3
