This is a simple in-the-hoop project that can be used in so many ways. Place the pinwheels in cakes to make them festive and fun or in planters for a pop of color. They are also so cute used as decorations for your home and for holidays. Full instructions are included with purchase of the embroidery design.
I love this baby gift set using animals from the Mini Woodland Animal 2 Set. https://www.sewchacha.com/product/mini-woodland-animals-2-machine-embroidery-design-set/ Thank you Debbi for sending it in! Adorable!
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!
I’ve had a lot of babies to stitch for recently which is always a favorite! Stitching these dinosaurs was more fun than fossil finding! I couldn’t resist the dinosaur puppet from IKEA to go along with the set.
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.
Stabilizer is expensive and I don’t like to see it go to waste. One of the ways I save on stabilizer is by sewing large used pieces together. I prefer to use a zig-zag stitch. This is a mesh with a nice sized piece in the middle that I will be stitching on.
