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.

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.
Valentine’s Day Candy Bar Wrappers
There are three designs in the set and are made in your 5 x 7 hoop.
You’re So Tweet
Happy Valentine’s Day
All You Need is Love and a Little Chocolate
You can whip up a bunch of these for all the sweet Valentines in your life and you can have them all done before the football game is over.
You may find them here in the Embroidery It Etsy shop or Zibbet store.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Did you know that all Embroidery It Candy Holders are made in your 4 x 4 hoop? All contain step-by-step instructions.
They are stitched on felt and have a clear vinyl window. The vinyl is purchased at your fabric store in the tablecloth section. The remainder of the designs are stitched on felt, vinyl, glitter fabric, or other non-fraying fabric.
I’ve been having fun making these little mini videos. I hope you enjoy this one!

Thank you so much for all the support you give me. Your kindness is truly treasured and appreciated by me and my family. For all my newsletter subscribers, I am offering this free design.

I’ve turned mine into a coaster, but you could stitch it onto anything. Fits in your 4 x 4 hoop.
I so wish we could get together and stitch. Since we are scattered around the planet, I created a video stitching one of the Valentine Treat Bags. It is the closest thing to a little virtual embroidery party I can come up with.
These treat bags are made in the 5 x 7 hoop and require 2 hoopings. You hoop once to make the back of the bag and then a second time to make the front. No additional sewing required.
Here is the video and I hope you will stitch right along with me.
Someday Friends, maybe we will get to meet in person and stitch together.
The sun is shining and it is a beautiful day but it it is COLD! I hope the weather is decent where you are.
Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly. I chose this design to stitch for my girls on t-shirts to give to them along with a little chocolate.
The design is from Designs By Sick. I used mylar behind the hearts for that extra Valentine sparkle. The t-shirts were only $3.96 from Walmart. They are full length t-shirts. I just have them folded up in the picture. I want my sweet girls to know that I will ALWAYS love them 4 ever!
Hugs and Blessings to you dear readers. Just you being here and reading is a Valentine’s day gift from you to me.
