Join us each month as we make a project using your embroidery machine. The projects will be related to the season and small enough to finish during your class. Meet fellow embroiders and have sew much fun!
February - Sweet Feet: Stinkin' Cute Gym Shoes - The vintage-style high top can be sewn in team colors or cotton prints. Personalize the medallion on the show with the name or jersey number of your player. Thread real shoelaces or ribbon to tie it up. Sleeves of cream filled cookies fit just inside for the sporty striped socks.
March - So "Hoppy" Bunny Ears - Some bunny is going to be very hoppy to receive this adorable bag filled with Easter treats. The cinch bag is one of the most innovative designs. There is added embroidery details and long ears to make the most precious spring bunny in two sizes. Choose a contrasting fabric for the ling, which also becomes the inside of the rabbit ears.
April - Lovebirds Tandem Bicycle Tote - The tandem bike has been a symbol of romance for more than one hundred years. Just like marriage, the technique takes cooperation and practice. Thank goodness machine embroidery isnt that much work! In our tandem design, little lovebirds look sweet perched on the bicycle seat and handles, and we adore the baskets of blossoms with fringe flowers, too. Perfect for a picnic tote, you can personalize the design by adding your marriage or anniversary date.
May - Flower Zipper Clutch - Featuring a sophisticated combination of textiles like linen and wool, the Flower Zipper Clutch comes in three sizes. From durable cork to dainty calicos, create your own aesthetic by trying a different fabric medium for each petal. Unlike traditional machine embroidery applique, where the design is secured with a satin stitch, raw edges of the pretty petals are surrounded with whimsical outline stitches. The clutch is fully lined, plus Kimberbell makes installing a zipper so remarkably easy in-the-hoop.
June - Citrus Cutwork Towel - With lacy citrus slices and delicate white blossoms, this beautiful cutwork hand towel makes me think I should invite the ladies for lunch. I'll serve chicken salad on tea sandwiches with key lime tarts for dessert and all the while everyone will admire my lovely apron.
August - Fun with Fringe: Baby Lion - Grandma may be squealing a bit too much when she stitches this adorable cub on a receiving blanket, burp cloth, or onesie. With Kimberbell's easy fringe technique a fuzzy mane of thread encircles the little lions head. The design comes in both 4 X 4 and 5 X 7 sizes with two different expressions. We know you'll love stitching both and that's no lion.
September - The Sweetest Equation Tea Towels - If the occasion calls for pie making, we keep the recipe simple with this math equation. Choose to applique either apple or pumpkin for the sweetest gift or kitchen decor. We've included instructions for adding a checked fabric border to a tea towel, but the designs would look equally as cute on an apron bib for your favorite baker.
