For Christmas my husband bought me an embroidery sewing machine. I have been so excited to use it. This weekend I finally figured it out enough to start on my first project.
For my first project I wanted to make monogrammed pillows.
I bought four napkins from Home Goods.
I took each napkin and ironed them (this is before I ironed them).
Then using my new embroidery sewing machine, I created my design.
I started simple with a single initial.
I used brown embroidery thread for the initial.
Then I decided to hand sew the top and the bottom together using a whip stitch.
For the second pillow I wanted to try something a little different.
Again I embroidered the "K" but then added a frame around it. I guess I need to be more careful to check the design on the computer before I send it to the sewing machine.
It's not exactly centered around the "K".
What do you think?
Not bad for my first attempt. I have plans for so many more projects.
I hope for my next project to try multiple colors.
Don't forget there is still time to enter my MirrorMate frame giveaway.
