Self-improvement comes in many forms. Why not resolve to learn a new embroidery technique?
Resolutions don’t have to be all about weight loss and exercise. Not that they aren’t good resolutions to make. You can also decide to learn something new this year!
Stitch a beautiful Wing Needle Butterfly. It’s not difficult at all. Just follow Bonnie’s instructions and switch out your standard embroidery needle for a wing needle when directed. Learn more about wing needles here and see a kitchen boa tutorial here.
Create an In-the-hoop Project
One of the many wonders of machine embroidery is that it makes creating ITH projects so much fun. If you have never tried one, this is the year!
Hoop ‘n Sew Twitter Pages is a great project you can make completely in the hoop. Really, the only thing you have to do is add a snap. See how cork is used to make a cute notebook cover in this tutorial, and how vinyl stitches up here.
If you like traditional applique, there is nothing like using GlitterFlex instead of fabric or along with fabrics in your appliques.
The sparkle is unmatched and the effect is breathtaking. It trims easier than fabric, launders well, and fuses beautifully.
GlitterFlex singles and special bundles created specifically for different themes and design packs. There are more than 60 colors from which to choose.
