Today I’m kicking off a series of posts about presser feet and other sewing machine tools, based on the Made to Create pillow project. Scroll through the photos and see if you can guess which accessories were used for each pillow.

I wanted something new to wear to an event, so I took a trip to our local thrift shop and found a beautiful fuchsia designer woven silk swing coat. But what to wear it with it?

Wikipedia describes Steampunk as a genre influenced by, and often adopted from, the style of the 19th-century scientific romances of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and Mary Shelley. We added our own elements to give our Steampunk office vignette an industrial flare.

Quick “Hexies” Shortcut for Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Hexagons are “in” now, so I designed a block in the CutWork software that makes a small grandmother’s flower garden flower in just two pieces. When it is embroidered you can’t tell it’s not made from individual hexagons like a traditional block!

Imagine cutting the butterflies for this project one by one. How long would it take? Debra’s granddaughter completed this charming butterfly heart – start to finish – in about three hours thanks to a little help from Debra’s embroidery machine.

This project is my take on a mug rug by Kay Hickman. Needless to say, I have an inability to follow directions. I wanted to work with leather so I could really make it look like a rug… fringe and all.

Amy Millsaps, who works at Raintree Quilting in Juneau, Alaska, sent me this picture of the beautiful Paris wallhanging she composed in DesignWorks software. She combined clipart and embroidery files from BERNINA Embroidery Software 6, OESD Flourish Fancy pack #12224, and the Rose Gown Applique and Paintwork design from DesignWorks Sampler 1 for a lovely montage

My husband was working on our truck and needed some new gaskets. He had read on the Internet that some guys were cutting these parts out of cereal boxes and he wondered, “Could this be done on Mary’s sewing machine with the cutwork tool?”
