The quick stitches are a new favorite! They are a quick way to add color to more space. And more, I love the texture they create!
“Oh Grommet!” is costume room talk. I’ve been busy working on costumes for a big show. One of the tasks was 250+ grommets in belts. When frustration set in, “Oh Grommet” came out.
These dish towels are a little reminder for the other costume mamas of the fun we had and the hours upon hours that we spent making the show come together.
The Teacher’s Chair
My daughter has an amazing teacher! Her theme this year is: Yet. When the students say they can’t do something or are fearful of something new, she’ll tell them, “You just don’t know how to do it YET.” She also had YET in big letters popping out of her classroom wall. The teacher asked me to embroider the theme on her director’s chair for the students to have a constant reminder. (I apologize for a semi-blurry picture.)
Scrappy Ruffle Bag
If you are like me, you have a mountain of scraps so scrappy projects are necessary to relieve the build up. I used a striped fabric to line this bag that helped guide me to sew the ruffles on straight. Seemed to work pretty well. It would also work to draw lines on an existing canvas bag to stitch ruffles to. Can one have too many ruffles?
Teacups Machine Embroidered Kitchen Art
I love the simplicity of running and motif stitches throughout a design. They stitch quickly and are very versatile.
Teacups are also another favorite. They are delicate and pretty! These are stitched on broadcloth and then mod podged to a small stretched canvas. Hot glue trims on the edges.
