Oh Grommet!

“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.

Baby Quiet Book

Baby Quiet Book

Although time consuming, I love making books for babies with feel appeal.  I’ve tried to come up with ways to cut back on some of the time-sucking elements like sewing the pages together and then flipping them right side out and stitching them again.  I used Extra Firm Stabilizer on these.  Felt would also work.  Applique allows lots of fun fabric to be incorporated in the book.  I love that there was an extra page at the end to add a mirror. Welcome to the world sweet Adeline!

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.

Mini Machine Embroidery Designs

Much of what you will see on my website are mini embroidery designs.  I love them because they are quick to stitch and great to add a little something personal to monograms or text.  I have seen them used in so many awesome ways!  Here are a few examples to get the wheels of creativity turning.

More ideas are sprinkled throughout my website.  Most of these projects were done by my sweet friend.
