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.
I woke up to this beautiful morning. Don’t let the sunshine fool you, it is only 40 degrees outside! Perfect for wrapping up in a quilt and enjoying my morning coffee outside. Still, the tulips and daffodils are blooming and the trees are budding and leafing out. Glorious!
In celebration of spring, last month’s Embroidery Bee designs have been released to all. Here is the Organza Flower Alphabet Set.
Add some sweet decorations to wreaths. Tie a flower onto your sewing machine handle with your initial. Attach to the zipper of a backpack and more.
The center is free standing lace. The petals are intended to have a fabric such as organza, or other sheer and shiny fabric. Mylar is another great option for shine and sparkle.
Hang several in the window and let the sun catch and reflect from them.
The hanger is the first color stop. Use the design as an applique on a child’s shirt by just advancing past the first thread color. Then add a bow for the finishing touch.
As with all Embroidery Bee designs you can make these in your 4 x 4 hoop.
The Organza Flower Alphabet set may be found in Etsy and in Zibbet.
Friends, I hope wherever you are, that you are having a beautiful day too. Do something creative. Make something fun. Do something to make it a great day.
And if you are not a member of the Embroidery Bee club yet and to get designs similar to this one, just click the button below.
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.
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.
I’m just beyond excited to tell you about Embroidery Its new membership program called the Embroidery Bee.
Each month, members will receive a full alphabet set, a candy holder and a newsletter that showcases these designs. These designs are offered at the price of only $5.00 a month and available to Embroidery Bee members exclusively for the first month. After that, they will be released to the public at full price.
This link HERE gives a full description of the club and how it works.
To get members started, a free bonus design is available immediately.
Homemade cookies hot out of Grandma’s oven and piped with icing. That is what these in the hoop candy cane sliders look like. Frosted Christmas Cookies is a fun in the hoop project to make on your embroidery machine using your 4 x 4 hoop. You will take you Christmas decorating and gift giving up a notch. Best part of all, you make 3 in one hooping!
I just want to show off some fun ways to use and display these. I added a bow with pink string, just because I could! 🙂
Today I have been finishing up the stitching of all 50 coasters and ornaments! 46 are currently in the Etsy and Zibbet shops and the final 4 will be available by Sunday. I’m just thrilled with how they have turned out and Friends, I have appreciated your support with them. For those of you who have waited for these last ones, thank you so much for your patience. Thanksgiving slowed me down a bit with Mike’s parents here and then all the activities.
As we get to the end of the year, I’ve been spending some time fine tuning some of the plans I have for Embroidery It and I wanted to share them with you so you will know what to expect.
First off, coming January 1st will be an embroidery membership program. It will be only $5.00 a month and each month you will receive a complete alphabet set as well as some type of a candy holder. These will be at a substantial savings to the regular price and members will receive these designs a full month before they are released at full price to the general public. More details on that soon.
Next will be the launch of the store on the Embroidery It website. Embroidery It will remain on Etsy and Zibbet, but will also have a store right here so you don’t have to leave. I’m going to get the membership sight up and running first.
You know, I shouldn’t be scared, but I am. You are all such sweet and supportive people and I feel beyond blessed that you are here. I think the biggest thing I’m scared of is that even though I’ve hired someone to help me with this website stuff, that it won’t run quite right. I’m just going to tell you all right now, that if any snafus come up, I hope you know I WILL make it 100% right. I hope you all know my character by now. This is not something I will take lightly.
Thank you for being on this journey with me and for your continued support. It means more to me than you can ever imagine.
Candy canes just speak Christmas with their beautiful red and white stripes. They are such a fun addition on the tree where children can come and pluck one each day. They adorn packages beautifully and go great with a steaming mug of hot chocolate.
These are a fun in the hoop machine embroidery project. All designs are made in your 4 x 4 hoop.
Here are just a few ways to add just a touch to those candy canes that boost their gift giving presentation.
Ho Ho Ho Candy Cane Sliders are designed to make 3 in one hooping to get your gifts done three times as fast.
The Candy Cane Bow looks beautiful done in felt, or here you see it made with glitter vinyl.
Two candy canes create a lovely heart in this Merry Christmas Sweetheart design.
Have fun with these projects. It is a busy season for sure, but these projects are all quick and easy, stitching up in just a few minutes. They create that added special touch that makes them great for coworkers, classmates, neighbors and more. Add one to your plate of cookies or homemade candy. They are sure to bring a smile.
Warm up your embroidery machine and get ready for Christmas and for selling at craft shows by making these state coasters and ornaments.
5 designs currently released and each design can be made into either a coaster or an ornament.
They are stitched on felt using your 4 x 4 hoop. Instructions are given so you can place the heart anywhere in the design using ANY machine. You don’t need special software or machine that positions. It can be done on ANY machine.
You know the nurse in me just goes into full on medical mode when people reach out to me for embroidery assistance that meets a medical need they have. Our loved ones who require special feeding needs have a place in my heart. I have always asked God to use this business to be a blessing to others and I’m grateful to be able to offer these feeding pads.
My latest is the Christmas Tree feeding pad. Note that the stitching of the bulbs, star and base of tree are done only on the top and do not go through to the back layer. There is also light stitching done to help prevent any irritation to the feeding tube site.
This design is done in your 4 x 4 hoop and instructions are included.
Here are a few additional tips for making the feeding tube pads.
Use all cotton fabric and absorbent batting. I use cotton flannel as my absorbent batting and for the backing and then a decorative cotton on top.
Wash and dry all the fabrics before embroidering to prevent future shrinking.
Use more than one absorbent layer if necessary.
Use cotton thread to embroider if polyester is irritating.
Use a wash-away stabilizer or clean tear-away stabilizer
Use plastic snaps for comfort rather than velcro
Now you can stitch up a stack of these sweet Christmas trees to get ready for the Christmas season.
You can find the Christmas tree feeding tube pad on Zibbet and on Etsy.
It is a beautiful crisp morning and I’m lovin’ every minute of it. I’m wrapped up in my big fluffy pink robe with my coffee and just enjoying the quiet time before getting ready for church. Just thinking of all I have to be thankful for.
Being real here…Some days being the single owner, one who does it all, of Embroidery It is incredibly rewarding. Always having had the dream of having my own business and then seeing it come to reality is a dream come true. Then there are other parts of the business I just haven’t got a clue with.
Friends, it is time in my business that I look at getting a little help with this website. Not permanent help, but someone to get it going in the direction that aligns with my vision. Someone who I can call upon when I’m baffled with search engine optimization or when I get an error page. Up to this point, I’ve done everything myself.
Friends, it is because of YOU that I am now able to move forward a bit more. I’m just beyond thankful for each and every one of you.
If you read my newsletter you will know that Embroidery It is planning a monthly club in which for a nominal fee you will get brand new, fresh and fun designs. This will begin January 2017. Stay tuned for more information.
Please be sure to grab the tag letter D. It will be replaced on Wednesday with the letter E so you have a few days yet to get it. Offering a free design each week is my way of saying “Thank You for being a part of my journey and for your support.” I’m so grateful for each of you. Just be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the home page to grab the free design of the week.
