We live to design and play with machine embroidery designs, techniques, methods and be slaves to our furbabies. They just love watching us designing and attacking threads. Most of all we are on a mission to help people fearlessly express their creativity in machine embroidery and multi media all at affordable prices. When we are not digitizing or making something we are hunting down the next great idea to design.

Latte Candlewick Quilt Blocks
Today we are going to make Quilt Blocks in lovely “coffee” shades! I made my squares in cream coloured poly-cotton. There are 12 different picture squares as well as an accent square. I stitched out the accent square 4 times – 1 for each corner – to complete my wall-quilt. You can make your quilt much bigger by stitching out more accent blocks and placing them between your picture blocks. Very lovely! The blocks don’t take long to stitch out with only a few colour changes yet creating a lovely end result. I used the “Quilt As You Go” Method to complete my quilt.
Floral Clutch Bag
Today we are going to make a Floral Clutch Bag from soft imitation suede. The Clutch bag and flap is lined with thin batting. The inside of the bag has a fabric lining and the flap is lined with suede. The completed bag (closed) measures 12″ across and 7.5″ in height/30cm x 19cm
Lace Earings. The World’s Easiest!
Today we are going to make the “world’s easiest Lace Earings!” Each design is small and measures approx. from just over an inch to 1.75 inch/3cm to 4.5cm. I have included colour stops for trimming any little “jump stitches” where necessary. However, only 1 colour is used throughout. Your bobbin thread matches the top thread. I used machine embroidery thread – Marathon – and it works very well. From your local craft shop you will need to get jump rings to make drop earrings (optional) and earring hooks. You will also need some small imitation pearls and a glue gun for gluing on the pearls.
ITH Sweet-Pea QAYG Quilt Blocks
Today we are going to make ITH Sweet-Pea QAYG Quilt Blocks. These are lovely, easy to make quilt blocks. The blocks are 7″x7″ square so cut your fabric and batting 2″ larger all round. This will give you extra fabric to work with to complete your project. The running stitches edging the square keep the fabric taut while embroidering and are very easy to remove when the square is completed. I have also included an Accent Block which is only quilted should you want a plain block to complete your project:)
ITH Sunglasses Holder
Today we are going to make a ITH Sunglasses Holder. They are nice and roomy for those big fashion style sunglasses that are always so popular. This is a nice project to make as gifts for animal lover, craft fairs or fund raisers for animal welfare.
Finger Puppets ITH Project
Here is a lovely project to use up all those colourful bits of felt in your stash. Each finger puppet is for the 4×4″ hoop. They are great for imaginative play and for Craft Stalls.
ITH Key Fobs
Today we are going to make some ITH Key Fobs. These nifty little guys are easy to make and will use up scraps of fabrics. Besides the cute design on the front there is a nifty little pocket on the back. These little fobs are great for gifts, craft fairs and fund raisers for animal welfare.
Festive Fabric Bowls
Today we are going to make Festive Fabric Bowls, perfect for serving homemade treats in or to use as gifts. I made them in 2 sizes. The bigger bowl measures 12″/30cm across by 5″/13cm high. The base is 4.5″/11.5cm sq. The smaller bowl measures 9″/23cm across by 3.5″/9cm high. The base is 3.5″/8.5cm sq.
Fall Time Oven Mitts
Today we are going to make a pair of Fall Time Oven Mitts for the 6″x10″/150mmx250mm Hoop. Each Mitt is done in 2 hoopings, an upper-side and an under-side, which are then stitched together by machine to complete. This is an easy pattern and stitches out quickly. All the fabric used is poly-cotton with a heat-proof batting.
