Personalization is always a great choice for gifts. I really love to create special items for people that would be difficult to find in retail stores. When their name is on the gift, it shows the receiver you went that extra step. It doesn't have to be fancy. The little burlap sign above is made entirely with remnants. Burlap is a homey textile and the family this was designed for loves that style of decorating.
The embroidery is a combination of a purchased design and software creation. Red canvas material really makes it stand out while muslin gives it a solid background to frame the design. Layering fabrics and trims helps to give the sign a more substantial look.
The best part is seeing the sign in the home of this wonderful family. They really loved it. If you would like to see my process for sewing this sign, there is a download below. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you make. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
