Favorite Things- March

My new embroidery pattern is *almost ready* for release so I thought I’d take a step back and do a quick post today about some of my favorite things this month!

How to Get Started with Fashion Embroidery

In this tutorial I’m sharing everything you need to know to get started with fashion embroidery. We’ll go over supplies and notions, how to transfer your designs onto fabric, as well as setting up your embroidery hoop. I share demo’s on how to trim your floss skeins into two different lengths, hooping, wrapping your embroidery hoop with twill tape, as well as starting and stopping with waste knots and the long tail method and weaving in your ends and trimming.

Vintage 1950’s Seahorse Embroidered Beach Jacket, McCall 1524

I bought this Vintage 1950’s Beach Jacket pattern, McCall’s 1524 on Etsy and really lucked out. I fell in love with the lines of this simple jacket pattern- not even realizing it had embroidery- and seahorses at that! The pattern contained intact (and fully functional) embroidery pattern transfers! So perfect for Florida! It couldn’t have
