My November pin cushion swap was received. How cute is this?! I LOVE it!!! My collection is slowly growing.
Today I took a break from my holiday rush and made something for myself. I embroidered a couple of towels for the hall bathroom. I spotted an embroidered towel I liked a local “chain” store that I won’t name here and they wanted $14 for that sucker. CRAZY!
These designs are from the Embroidery Library Cool and Crazy Snowflake collection. They stitch out really well.
One Way to Machine Embroider on a Towel
The towels above will be folded in half and hung. I placed the design so it was centered on the lower right side of the towel. You need to decide where you want to place your design and mark it.
I hooped a layer of tear away stabilizer and then sprayed it with Sulky KK2000. The towel was stuck on top of the sticky (sprayed) tear away. The towel wasn’t hooped.
I placed two layers of Sulky Super Solvy over the towel and pinned through all the layers. Make sure the pins are outside the design stitching area.
After stitching, carefully tear away the front and back stabilizers and trim the jump stitches. That’s all there is to it.
Take a break and make something fun just for yourself this weekend. It will make you feel good!
What have you been up to? I’ve been up to lots of little things and stocking stuffers.
I made several of these great Triple Zip Pouches from Debbie at a Quilter’s Table Blog. Just right for everything. Looks great in playful colors as well as more serious colors:)
Got this month’s pincushion swaps mailed off. The owl is a finger “ring” pincushion from Embroidery Garden. She has lots of “in the hoop” projects that stitch really well. The snowflake design is from Embroidery Library. This is another of my favorite places with designs that stitch really well.
Changed out one of my Garden Party Wristlets to a contrasting bow. Much better.
And…I have my first quilting bee retreat coming up. I’ve been cutting a BIG stack of projects. I’m excited can you tell?
Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
Don’t get lost in the crowded malls.
