Valentine's Day is fast approaching and Hearts are everywhere in our local stores. So in honor of that upcoming day, I am releasing a brand new simple Fringe Heart Embroidery design.
I really like quick and easy designs for those last minutes projects and this one will most certainly fit that description. In a short time, you can put this on pillows, T-Shirts, quilts or anywhere you want to spread some love.
I used a variegated thread on my sample so you could see that by making a unique thread choice, you will have a lot of options to use this design; not just for Valentines Day, but for other occasions. Moms, Dads, Grandparents and Kids are happy to receive some love. The inside is blank so you can customize it with your own text.
The design stitches out with a wide satin and you can see the inner zig zag stitching also. This is important because you have to have something to hold those long threads in place for your upcoming trimming.
When you are ready to create the fringe, flip the hoop over and slide a small pair of scissors underneath the bobbin threads. Carefully snip those and the long fringe threads will be released.
Here is everything trimmed away and ready to turn over. Keeping the design in your hoop during this part will make it easier to trim as the hoop keeps it taut.
Then use a blunt object or your fingernail to gently pull the fringe to the front of the hoop. It's that easy.

The New Year is here and my first design is being released today. How about a Round Tuit Coffee Mug Wrap designed for the procrastinator in you? This time of year is kind of dreaded by a lot of people isn't it? There are a lot of things ending and life slows to a crawl for celebrations. Then the normal get back to work tasks creep back in. The hardest part is getting started. So I designed this mug wrap to remind myself that I will "Get Around To It"
I am a hot beverage lover and real coffee mugs are necessary in my opinion. It is truly a small pleasure that I indulge in daily. There is something so decadent in sitting quietly with a warm mug enveloped in a quilted wrap. I chose a floral fabric for this wrap and the quilting looks so pretty. I look forward to using it on my favorite pink mug.
This project has some applique in it so small pieces in your stash can be used up. The design will require at least a 6x10 hoop and the entire wrap will be completed in one hooping except for a small opening to turn.
The text is really cute and simple. I think the sky is the limit with color choices in fabric and thread.
A button finishes everything off. If you are like me, you probably have a lot of buttons in your stash that need a project home.
What a bright and cheerful wrap. I love the colors. Now instead of procrastinating, I can say I am going to get "Round To It"
