Personalized baby bloomers…

1 Oct

My niece is having a baby girl, her shower was today..

I wanted to do something with my embroidery machine…

I decided to do a blanket, but the baby isn’t here yet and we want to put the date on the blanket.

We used brown fleece and added satin binding, cause babies like soft binding…my dear Victoria basted this binding on so it would be perfect on each side. ¬†Sorry no picture yet:-)

We just had fun..

An I love Daddy and Mommy reversible bib.

Flannel burp cloths..

 

Victoria made these adorable infant headbands! They turned out awesome!

And these precious bloomers, we got the initials of the baby, even though they don’t want to tell the name. ūüôā

These bloomers are 100% American made in our home..

That is exciting!  The fabric is 100% cotton, and the embroidery is done on my machine!  Jennifer loved them, I am so glad for her!

I’m going to put these up on our website soon!

Embroidery trial run…

21 Apr

O.K. before I get upstairs to do school, I tested some fonts and stabilizers.

This is “Floriani” stitch n wash, fusible water soluble, tearaway stabilizer. So, to embroider you need to stabilize your fabric in order that your stitches look nice and don’t pull on your fabric.

I did this monogram without ironing on and it pulled a little for me.  I ironed it when finished but I learned a lesson. Namely, iron on with a lighter weight cotton.

Now, this one I ironed the stabilizer on and stitched and you are looking at an unironed finish. Quite the difference!¬† When I iron it…it wil turn out with a much flatter finish.¬†

Over all I think they turned out sweet!

They are done with their morning chores so…Off to school!
