I have a new Free Ribbon Survivor Embroidery design being released today. Click the link above to be taken to our free design page where you can download one or all. This time of year we are coming into the month of October and Breast cancer awareness. There are many other Ribbon causes that use the ribbon and this design is perfect to use for all of them because you can choose your own colors.
Notice the ribbon, text and each rainbow line are all different shades of pink or purple. You can stick with those or stitch out with your preferred thread colors. This is also sewn in a 5x7 hoop so it is a good size design that will show up on your projects. Let's look at some mock ups to give you some inspiration.
How about doing a tea towel for someone you love? The open stitching would work very well on flat cotton towels. Fluffy towels might hide the open stitching so if you are going to do this project try to find those broadcloth or diaper material towels.
If you have a run or walk event planned, you could sew the design to a shirt . This baseball style with colored sleeves would be really cute.
Lunch bags or any kind of tote would be a great gift for a loved one so they can be reminded daily that they are a survivor. This bag could be for an ovarian cancer survivor. Just change the thread colors to lighter shades of teal.
How about sewing the Ribbon Survivor Design to the back of a jacket? This black jacket would really showcase the stitching and if you use metallic threads it would pop.
This would be a "cheeky" survivor display. Stitched on the back of a pair of sweats for a Ribbon Run and you would give someone a smile.
Finally how about on a pocket of your luggage? You may strike up a conversation with other survivors while traveling.
Are you inspired to do some embroidery? Remember, this would be a great design to add to your donated items. There are several other Service Projects on my site here. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
