Whether to cover your bread or as a pretty basket liner for Easter gifts, this project exudes the promise of spring!
Everyone is likely pretty sick of snow and ice. How about a quick-stitch Easter project using a pre-made blank?
Bonnie’s Sew Eggsquisite, number 6, seemed like the perfect choice for an Easter basket liner. You can stitch on one panel of the bun warmer or on all four.
I pressed the bun warmer, which came pretty-well starched. After hooping a fabric-type wash-away stabilizer, I marked the center crosshairs.
For odd-sized items such as this, I have found it helpful to stitch out a basting stitch on the stabilizer. That shows me the dimensions of the design and aids in positioning one arm of the bunwarmer. You can also print out a template of the design and use it to position the embroidery.
Finger press the bun warmer segment in half wrong sides together. Position it over the basting stitch, right side up, and line up the center fold with the center crosshair on the stabilizer.
Secure the bunwarmer in the hoop (I used SewTites) and stitch the design. Keeping SewTites outside the basting stitch ensures that they are free of the stitching field.
It is so pretty, you can't help but smile!
