Embroidered Feathers Pillow

22 Jul

I made a gorgeous pillow. I even used piping! That was a new experience for me, but I think it turned out well! Maybe I should do a tutorial on piping? It’s kind of confusing if you’ve never done it before. Anyways, I embroidered this pillow. It’s an Anita Goodesign from February. I think it turned out very well!

Legends of Hollywood Quilt

9 Jul

 

My shoulder is still bothering me, so I’m keeping actual sewing to a minimum, but I’ve been playing with embroidery a lot! I started working on this Legends of Hollywood quilt. I digitized the designs myself, and I’m still debating if it should by 3 by 3 or 4 by 4 blocks. If I do 4 by 4, I’ll need a few more Legends to digitize! Any suggestions?

I Started Selling Embroidery Patterns

27 Jun

Etsy Shop(1)

 

I wanted to for a long time, and now I’m finally getting all of my digitizing done! I know it took a while, because I started talking about it months ago. Since my injury, I haven’t been able to sew much, but I started to use all of the other sewing stuff I have. I started to pound out embroideries, and then I also started to use my digitizing software. In fact, all through the summer, take 20% off my embroidery patterns with promo code: 20Emb.

Moroccan Tiles Embroidery

I went on ahead and got a whole black completed. I have quite a few more squares already embroidered, but just haven’t gotten them together yet. I just love this design, and I can’t wait to put it all together to make a quilt.

Working On An Embroidered Pillow

31 May

I haven’t posted much lately… I haven’t done much lately. I was horribly sick, but now I’m back on the grind. I started with this gorgeous pillow, and I have an embroidered tile scene I’m working on as well. I’ll make sure to post it later. Anyway… This is a design called “Moroccan Tile” and it’s made by Viking. We’re doing a class on it at work, so I better get on it because this is only half the design! The pillow will be 4 blocks and I only have 2 more to go! Wish me luck!

Using Some Metallic Thread

21 Apr

So, we got these new thread holders at work, and they work great for metallic thread. I’m making these too throw pillows with the metallic thread, and I think it just looks marvelous! I’m not too sure what to use metallic thread for, any have any good ideas?

Playing With The Embroidery Machines At Work

17 Jan

Well, I’ve been making some stuff for the store I work at, and I wanted to work with some variegated thread. I’m beyond in love! I also played around with Viking’s 6D software… It’s actually pretty easy. I designed the 2 hearts, and the “When You Wish…” piece myself. It was actually surprisingly easy. Follow the jump for more pictures of the threads close up! Continue reading
