Welcome to the final day of the Embroidery It Birthday Party.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, kindness and generosity. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. It is through you that my dreams, goals and visions are coming true. I sincerely thank you.
As we wrap up the birthday party, it is Sunday, a day of rest. I hope you will use these inspirational teacup coasters as a gentle reminder to enjoy each day and all life has to offer with its many blessings.
Make a set of 4 or 8 coasters for yourself, or they make a lovely gift bundled up and added with some tea, a teacup and a homemade muffin or small box of chocolates. Give as a hostess gift, housewarming, get well, birthday, retirement gift and the list goes on. There are 8 designs in the set.
These are stitched on felt and made in your 4 x 4 hoop.
You will find the Inspirational Teacup Coasters HERE in Etsy
So happy to have you here today on Day 6 of the Embroidery It Birthday Party
Today’s Birthday Party Special is a good ol’ fashioned Gumball Machine.
It is made using your 5 x 7 hoop and is stitched on felt and clear vinyl.
For the clear vinyl, you will find that at your local fabric store or Walmart carries it too in their fabric department. You will find it in the section where they sell tablecloth fabric. Just get the thin cheep stuff and you only need 4 inches wide so get 1/8 of a yard.
The candy goes in and out the dispenser opening at the bottom of the design. I know what you are thinking….the candy will fall out. Nope, it doesn’t. You pinch it a bit to get the candy to come out.
Here in the photo I’ve filled them with Skittles, but you could use M & M’s or other small candy or small gumballs.
Also in the photo, I’ve stitched it with both red felt on the back as well as clear vinyl on the back. It just depends on the look you want.
The hanger is optional.
This really is a quick and easy design and only uses two thread colors.
Oh I so hope you are enjoying the birthday party. Today is day 5 and what a sweet design set it is.
Mason jars are just adorable and can be used for so many things. Here is an alphabet set that fits a wide mouth mason jar.
Fill the jar with colorful candies, or a stack of cookies and give to someone special. If you don’t want sweets, fill it with pretty spools of thread for your sewing friends. You could even roll up a small sewing project like a fabric panel and give as a gift in the jar. Just embroider their initial for the top and it is ready for gift giving.

Now for today’s design. The Cupcake Candy Holder. As guests leave the party it is nice to send them off with something in their hand and something sweet.
Today’s design is a cupcake candy holder. It is quick and easy to make and takes just scraps of felt. It is made in your 4 x 4 hoop and I’ve included lots of step-by-step photos with it. There is a small slit on the back of it where the candy is inserted. Any small candy is fine. I’m partial to M&M’s 🙂
Make a bunch to set around the party table or have a basket full ready at the door.
It’s Saturday. It’s a beautiful day to make something. I hope that means you will find it to be a relaxing day and be able to spend some time at your embroidery machine or doing something you truly love.
Today’s design is for those of you with those larger hoop sizes. It’s a Beautiful Day to Make Something comes in two sizes. One for your 5 x 7 hoop and the other for your 8 x 12 hoop. Exact sizes are in the Etsy description which you can find HERE.
I used a 12 x 16 pillow form for the pillow and added a bit of rick-rack for some fun country charm.
Make it a great day everyone and happy embroidering,
Here is today’s free design as part of the Embroidery It Birthday Party. If by chance you are just finding my site, be sure to sign up for the newsletter. There will be one more free design this week and then there is always the free alphabet letter and other fun events that happen around here.
Lets get the house ready for the party. Embroider up a t-shirt for the birthday person and how about some placemats or pillows to go around the house. And for a bit of whimsy how about a roll of toilet paper for something fun in the bathroom. Just set it on the back of the stool for decoration and watch the smiles as people exit from your bathroom. 🙂
Quick instructions for embroidering on toilet paper: Hoop a light weight tear-away or cut-away stabilizer in your 4 x 4 hoop. Use a good quality toilet paper. I’ve used Charmin here. Unroll the paper a ways so you have plenty of slack and that it won’t pull. Take the first two squares and fold them back upon themselves so you now have a double thickness of TP. Float the toilet paper on the stabilizer. Key is just to make sure you have slack as your machine stitches and that there is no pulling. I shouldn’t need to say this but will because who knows who will read this in the future, but this roll of toilet paper is for decorative purposes only. 🙂 Embroidered toilet paper also makes a fun gag gift.
Happy Birthday comes in two sizes, one for your 4 x 4 hoop and the other for your 5 x 7 hoop. The small size was used on the TP and the large size was used on the placemat.
Happy Birthday can be found in the Embroidery It Etsy store HERE.
Todays Birthday design set will give you the hometown country general store feel. Kitchen Emblems using mouth watering words will keep you thinking of the freshest ingredients, Grandma’s comfort food, and your best recipes. Use these designs on towels, aprons, placemats and all your kitchen linens to bring back that country nostalgic feel.
I embroidered the designs onto towels that I made out of Hardanger cotton fabric. The Hardanger fabric has the salvage edges finished off so all I had to do was cut to length and I cut them 30″ long. I hemmed the top with a simple roll-over hem and on the bottom I did a scrappy patchwork border using fabric and thread colors that matched.
You could cut your patchwork squares any size, but I cut mine at 1 1/2″ square and then stitched them together randomly using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
I just made enough for two rows to go the length of the towel. I finished off the back of the patchwork squares with white cotton fabric as my squares hang below the towel. In hindsight, I could have just stitched them directly to the bottom of the towel and that probably would have been a bit easier.
I must confess, these designs have been some of my very favorite. I think it is because they just special, what I call, trendy vintage feel to them. You can find Kitchen Emblems HERE in the Embroidery It Etsy store.
Remember those handwritten notes we would write on paper and pass in school? Sometimes just a simple note to say “Happy Birthday” is needed and nothing is better than a machine embroidered note. Even the notebook paper, which is white felt here, is part of the design! But you could use any white fabric. Pure simple country charm.
Just a Note design comes in two sizes. One for your 4 x 4 hoop and the other for your 5 x 7 hoop.
Just wander on over to the Embroidery It Etsy shop and you can find the design HERE.
To go with all those creative homemade gifts and yummy goodies, here is a set of mason jar tags. Quickly and easily the set of 4 are made in your 4 x 4 hoop. Step-by-step instructions included. Design is stitched on felt and could easily be stitched on other fabric of your choice. Your gift giving gets a sweet added touch.
Mason Jar Tags can be found HERE in the Embroidery It Etsy Store.
