Katherine sent photos of a last-minute gift-wrapping project – beautiful! She had no wrapping paper, but plenty of fabric, so she made this precious wrap – which ended up being as big a hit as the gift!
Doesn’t this look like a fun class? It’s a hands-on event they held at The Sewing Room in Tucson, AZ, for their new B 750 sewing machine owners. They had lots of fun sewing Erika’s Geometric Quilt Block Pillow. Thanks, Mary, for sharing this photo!
The day arrived for the first fitting of the wedding dress. Of course I had to make the test dress pink, since her very first wedding dress was a pink satin that I made when she was five years old. Since Jessica didn’t want embroidery on her wedding dress, I decided to place some on the test dress.
Looking for a fun and practical project for sewers of all levels? This cool-looking bag goes from super simple to super trendy with plenty of options for embellishment. Enjoy playing with decorative stitches on your machine and splash some color in the process. Walk away (and around!) with a casual bag that shows some serious groove.
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
Grab one of these and you can make any place your tea corner. The “sweetener” is how quick they are to make. Next time you’re invited for tea (or coffee) bring a stack of these as a gift ‒ and look for the smile you’ll get in return.
My Owlivia Slouch Bag in Through the Needle ONLINE #15 uses all of the DesignWorks components plus embroidery. I have to admit that CrystalWork used is quickly becoming a favorite of mine – it’s quick and easy and I think every project needs just a little sparkle to make it pop. Don’t you?
Gayle Schleimann composed her Peace, Love, and Joy Chirpy Bird trilogy in BERNINA Embroidery Software 6, using simple letter kerning, manipulation, and pattern run items to create her pieces. The best part was incorporating her new Chirpy Bird designs!
