Wintry Whimsy! Turn the season’s frost into a warm touch for your home. Nothing embodies the charm of winter like this snowflake pillow.
Fall is a magic time of year. Turn its first chill into a warm touch for your home décor. Let the dancing leaves spend the whole year with you, appliqued on your new pillow.
One of my favorite things to do is spend hours on the web seeing what other creative types are doing with their sewing machines. All it takes is to land on one fantastic creation and then there you go—from blog to blog to Pinterest to Flicker to whoops!—down the wormhole! But it’s an inspired trip.
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!
The fabric for Paula Atwood’s “Wool N’ Spools” creation is reclaimed wool from old skirts, etc. that she took apart and felted in the washer. She cut out the positive/negative shapes and needle-punched them to the woolen base using BERNINA’s Needle Punch Accessory Set.
I was visiting my friend Gayle and found these beautifully decorated balls all around her home. Of course I was amazed when she explained how they were created by an old Japanese art called Temari. What a great way to use up all those threads we have laying around!
