Stitch, Draw, and Glitz – with Your Embroidery Machine
Don’t you just love this little sign? It’d make a fabulous gift for a house-warming, wedding, birthday, anniversary… even “just-because-you’re-my-friend-day.” (Yes, I made that up, but don’t you think it’s a nice idea? Maybe every Wednesday…) A little info on the design: A combination of thread, ink, and crystals, all stitched or drawn by embroidery machine. Because everything is digitized, you can stitch/plant/glitz as many times as you want. Jo
I used Amanda’s lesson on the Sepia Petals Companion Collection CD to make this picture. I will admit, I was a little nervous at first to hit the GO button to cut the crystal stencil. That was silly! It was so easy!
The paint and embroidery were done on a light canvas-like material, then I added the crystals. Then got my staple gun out and attached the completed piece to an 8″ artist canvas from the craft store.
