June mug rug swap

I wanted to show off a little the 'summer' mug rug and peacock feather-tip earrings I made for a swap I'm in.  But I can't figure out how to upload a photo.  The 'attachment' (paperclip) button only adds a link :{

Wicked Tip: Embroidery On Leather

Posted by Laura L Smith on January 30, 2015 at 9:20am 0 Comments

1.  Hoop a piece of cut-away on top and then carefully cut a 'window' for embroidery - this is to eliminate hoop marks.  

2.  Some people favor a sharp needle while other prefer sharp or wedge needles (WEDGE NEEDLE: needle manufacturers tell advise that this needle point    type is recommended only for sewing leather - not for embroidery) ; and some like Teflon. Teflon helps prevent…

  1. Hoop the garment, as you would for regular embroidery. Use the correct backing for the type of garment being sewed on.

I don't remember ever seeing or signing up for this website but now that I have seen it, I will put it on my radar list to check in once in a while for ideas.

I had forgotten about this part of Shawn's world.  I think everyday life took over and then a month overseas and now setting back into a normal routine.

I hope everyone is embroidering up a storm, I know I have been.   Have the Golden Tapestry hanging on the wall, completed a cutting mat carrying bag and am now making some 3d embroidery cushion covers.  not bad since the 25th June.

I am working on some fun new single designs and I have also added new doll clothes patterns to my line.

I am having fun playing with dolls again after so many year.

Newbie Who Does Craft Shows - Anyone Else Do Craft Shows?

HI all!I'm a newbie here.  I used to do machine embroidery years ago and am just getting back into it.  I'm sure many things have changed - like stabilizers, tips and tricks, etc. - and look forward to learning from everyone here.  For some reason, I'm much more excited about it this time around.I do craft shows making upcycled items from denim and jeans.  Wondering how I can use embroidery along these lines and, also, if I should just get more into embroidering and phase the denim stuff.Anyone…See More
