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!

Machine Embroidered monogram baby onesie

Friends, this was the January alphabet set for the Embroidery Bee members.  Don’t miss out.  Find out more about the monthly club by clicking HERE.

The design is now available for all in the Embroidery It Etsy store and Zibbet shop.

Machine Embroidery Free Tag Letter D and Embroidery It Moving Forward

Machine Embroidery Free Tag Letter D and Embroidery It Moving Forward

embroidery-it-tag-alphabet-d3

Good morning Friends,

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.

Much love,

Nancy

What’s on Your Embroidery Hoop this Morning?

What’s on Your Embroidery Hoop this Morning?

Dear Friends,

I’m home from vacationing in beautiful Florida the past couple of weeks.  I feel so blessed that we got to live there for a year and a half several years ago and made some great friendships.  The weather was beautiful and I had twinges of missing living there.  That said, it is sure good to be back “home” in Michigan.  It is just a slower pace and way of living up here and I thrive on that. 🙂

Amongst doing loads and loads of laundry and getting caught up on e-mails, I’ve been doing a bit of digitizing and stitching and will have a fun new design for you this coming week.

What is on your embroidery hoop this morning?  I’d love to hear!

New Free Cross Stitch Alphabet Designs Begins Today

Embroidery It Cross Stitch Alphabet 7

Dear Friends,

We are ready for the beginning of a new free alphabet set.  This is country charm at its best with a free cross stitch alphabet.  We will continue it as before with a new letter being released each week.

Embroidery It Cross Stitch Alphabet a 1

This week is special as not only will you receive the letter “a” but also the “heart” design.  By the way, these designs fit in your 4 x 4 hoop.

Embroidery it Cross Stitch Heart 1

I have turned my alphabet into a quilt but these designs would look sweet on towels, tote bags or other items that you wish to put a monogram on.

I won’t have quilting directions here as there are thousands on the internet.  I just came up with my own design.  I will tell you that I used 1 pack of charm squares and two packs of mini charm squares.  They are called “Strawberry Fields” from Moda.  I stitched each letter of the alphabet as well as two of the heart designs.  Once stitched, I cut those down to 5″ square which is the size of the charm squares.  I cut the mini charm squares into fourths and them mixed them up and re-stitched together for the little patchwork squares.  For sashing I used what I found on hand and cut strips 2 1/2″ wide.  I bought 1/3 yard matching fabric for the green border and 1/2 yard for the red border.  For the backing, I used something I had on hand.

One more thing, I knew this would be a wall quilt so I added the buttons for just a bit of fun charm.  If it was going to be a lap quilt or a quilt for a baby, I’d have left them off.

If you choose to turn your cross stitch letters into a quilt, I encourage you to be creative or look through your patterns.  No matter how you decide to use these letters, I would love to see a picture of what you create!

Enjoy everyone,

Nancy
