Making The Mesh For Distortion – A Prayer For Zachary

16 Feb


I’m totally cheating with my embroidery machine! It does the best applique! And for this project, it’s perfect. It’s almost comedic to look in my sewing room right now. It’s covered in ribbon, fabric scraps, thread, and starch based glue. I just buy Elmer’s by the gallon. They sell it at Walmart for like 10 dollars, and goodness knows I’m using it by the gallon. ‘A Prayer For Zachary’ did have to take a back seat this week with the blizzard we had, and I got a throat infection. It’s like this avian flu just won’t leave me alone. Don’t get sick, it’s for the birds… Literally! (More Pictures after the jump.)

Back to making this netting and tulle to distort the view of this quilt… Continue reading


I Finished (Kind Of) My Denim Embroidery Quilt

16 Sep

So, when I say I kind of finished, I really mean it. I finished the embroidery, and then I even sewed the top, and quilted it. Sounds pretty complete right… Well, I honestly got so excited for it, and I had so many other projects to go, I ran it off on my serger and washed it! So this way the denim appliques would fray and it would look device! I think it came out great. I’ll post full pictures of the quilt when I get around to binding it! Wish me luck!


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!


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.

Making Some Vinyl Clutches

21 Jun

I’ve been struck with this darn Bell’s Palsy and have had a hell of a time sewing with it. I paralyzed the right side of my face, as well as my right neck and shoulder. I’m trying to power through though! I’ve been doing a lot of embroidery because I can push the start button and walk away… It’s amazing! I started making these so I could teach a class on them, and now I’m just in love with them! I’ve made about 10 already, and I’ve gotten plenty more vinyl!  Wish me luck!


Moroccan Tiles Embroidery

9 Jun

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!
