Dear Friends,

Enough of that talk, lets just get ready for fall with these sweet Maple Leaf in-the-hoop coasters made on your embroidery machine using your 4 x 4 hoop.

Embroidery It Bear Feeding Tube Pad 2

Dear Friends,

I would like to share with you another feeding tube pad for those loved ones who require these.  Quickly and easily, you may now create a stack of super soft and absorbent pads in a snap for a loved one.  This design has been carefully created to be the perfect size and shape and to be fun and fashionable.

Embroidery It Bear Feeding Tube Pad 1

Light stitching is used for comfort. Gauze and tape can also be a skin irritant so these pads are the convenient alternative to gauze dressings.  Flannel is used next to the skin to help promote wicking.  An additional layer of flannel may be used for extra absorbancy.

Step-by-step instructions included.  Made in your 4 x 4 hoop.

The Bear Feeding Tube Pad can be found HERE in the Embroidery It Etsy shop.

Thanksgiving Turkey Candy Holder

Thanksgiving Turkey Candy Holder

Dear Friends,

Get ready for Thanksgiving!

I’m trying a new movie app here.  It is a short 26 second video of the Turkey Candy Holder.  It is now available in the Embroidery It Etsy Store HERE.

It is made in your 4 x 4 hoop and has step-by-step instructions with lots of photos.  The design is stitched on felt and has a clear vinyl window.  The felt for the feathers is a tie-died looking felt that I found in the craft felt section where you buy they squares of felt.  I chose a piece that had more oranges and browns on it.

A Behind the Scenes Glance at Digitizing an Embroidery Design

A Behind the Scenes Glance at Digitizing an Embroidery Design

Embroidery It Behind the scenes

Dear Friends,

Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes of creating an Embroidery design.

Here I am in the Embroidery It studio.  First I sketch my designs on my sketch pad.  I always use a pencil and sometimes colored pencils.

Then I transfer the design to the computer using embroidery software.  (I use Generations, but there are a number of different ones out on the market.  Most have a 30 day trial so if you are looking for one, try several to see which feels the most intuitive to you)  What you see in front of the computer is an electronic sketch pad or tablet and pen.  I use a Wacom, but again there are several different ones out there.

All my designs are digitized by hand.  I never use auto digitizing.  Also, all designs at Embroidery It are my own artwork.  You will not find these designs elsewhere.

After the design is digitized, I test it out on my embroidery machine.  Sometimes what I think looks good in my head and on paper doesn’t always translate well to thread and fabric.

I make any computer changes to the design as is necessary and stitch the design again.

When I’m satisfied with the design I gather it in all the formats.

I also photograph the finished design.

You Are

Then I put the design in my Etsy shop and I write about it here!

And that is what goes into the making of a design.

You can find this design in the Etsy shop HERE.

Happy Embroidering,

Large Feeding Tube Pad Made Easily in the hoop with Machine Embroidery

Embroidery It Feeding Tube Pad 10

Dear Friends,

You have been asking for larger feeding tube pads and I’ve listened.  My large feeding tube pads are still made in the 4 x 4 hoop.  I worked hand-in-hand with a mother whose daughter requires a feeding tube.  Feeding pads protect delicate skin and can help prevent granulation.

Embroidery It Feeding Tube Pad 8

Quickly and easily, you may now create a stack of super soft and absorbent pads in a snap for a loved one.
This design has been carefully created to be the perfect size and shape and to be fun and fashionable.

Embroidery It Feeding Tube Pad 9

Light stitching is used for comfort. Gauze and tape can also be a skin irritant so these pads are the convenient alternative to gauze dressings.

Step-by-step instructions included.  Made in your 4 x 4 hoop.  Finished design is 3 7/8”.

I’ve shown it here with two snaps, but if you think that is kind of overkill, just use one snap.  The plastic snaps are found at your local fabric store.  You may need to look for them where they sell infant items such as supplies to make homemade diapers.

You can find the embroidery design file in the Embroidery It Etsy Shop HERE.

Embroidery It Feeding Tube Pad

If you would like the smaller feeding tube pad, you may find it HERE.

 

And if you are looking for the Flower Feeding Tube Pad, you may find it HERE.

Many of you know, I worked as a registered nurse for many years.  To be able to create something on my embroidery machine that has health benefits has brought me such joy to think that in some small way this business is blessing others.  For that I am truly thankful.
