February is International Embroidery Month
SEW, what does this mean for me?
Well, I am trying to use my embroidery machine more!
I told you that I worked with a friend and she made a cute little pouch. Well, I had to make one … actually 2.
This is a free pattern from Kreative Kiwi. It is all done in the hoop … zipper and all. I made the one on the right first … and I realized that the embroidery didn’t really show up on the print … I like the 2nd one better. I did make them 10% bigger and the pattern turned out just fine!
I also made a bunch of lace bookmarks for members of the book club I belong to. Anita Goodesign – Lace Bookmarks. It was my first time trying lace and it was so much fun! I hooped solvy and organza and went to town. SO FUN!! I soon realized that the organza didn’t necessarily need to be the same colour as the bookmark … so freedom reigned. I had lots of fun experiementing with different colours!
