Design “Harvest Moon_01” This design was stitched on Japanese hemp which I purchased while in Japan, the fabric is very similar to a good quality linen fabric with a slightly open weave. I stitched at the base of the cushion lines of white thread using a straight stitch

I stitched “Harvest Moon_05” on an Obi fabric which is a very heavy silk fabric; I then used an Obi sash cord for the handle of the bag which I had purchased while in Japan

I stitched “Harvest Moon_01” Just using 2 colours on a cotton fabric which is another way of using the designs, I stitched this out to make a lovely little stool

Scenic Europe Instructions

I added to the right hand side of the photo a little pair of porcelain clogs, my mother brought back from one of her trips to Europe and was given to me when I was very young and that is why I designed this set.

 

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

The following designs used in the above photo

  • Scenic Europe_01
  • Scenic Europe_02
  • Scenic Europe_03
  • Scenic Europe_04

What you will need

  • 4 print outs in actual size showing connectors
  • 1 meter or 1 yard of white cotton fabric
  • 2 layers of medium weight stabilizer for each design as the buildings are rather dense in parts
  • Artists Canvas board, you can purchase the canvas board from an art shop or a $2.00 shop

 

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Print out all four designs in “Actual” size, each design showing connectors

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Cut around the design as you can see in the photo

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Line all four designs in a row, I use painters tape to hold the print out onto the fabric, so much better than using pins

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Mark the centre point in each design in the row

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

 

If you look closely at this photo you can see how I marked all four centre points of each design onto the fabric

 

Scenic Europe Machine Embroidery Designs

Centre your hoop with your markings

I stitched the row of 4 buildings on 2 layers of white cotton fabric, so when you place the design on a board or wish to frame the work, you cannot see any trace of your stabilizer

  • I just cut up a number of used printed paper for the template and stuck them together with painters tape

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

14. Mark your circle using chalk or fabric pen

15. Then stitch 1cm or .4inch from your chalk line, this helps the fabric not to stretch when you will be doing the seam in the future

16. Cut as close as you can to the stitched area using your scissors

18. Over the satin stitch around each panel, stitch a feather stitch or another of the decorative stitches that you have in your machine, there are so many to choose from this helps to blend all the designs together

  • I also satin stitched around the circle and then over the top of the satin stitch I stitched the feather stitch, this just gives a nice finish

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Over the satin stitch around each panel, stitch a feather stitch or the same decorative stitch that you had used on the top of the poof

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

23. Hand stitch the side panel to the top of the poof, this way you can manipulate the fabric so the two panels will match up perfectly, leaving where you matched up the panels, excess fabric as you will be hand stitching the two panels to interlock and you will need that extra fabric

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Photo showing you the finished hand stitching for the side panel to the top of the poof

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Machine stitch over your hand stitching but do not machine stitch towards the end of the panel as you need to hand stitch the two panels together, the following photo will show you

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

25. Hand stitch the two last panels so they can interlock, notice the excess fabric I recommend you use a coloured thread that you can easily see, so it will be easy to cut the threads after you have machined stitched the panel together

Zigzag stitch over the your hand stitching

27. Cut away the excess fabric

Scene Stealing Pin Cushion

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

I do not have step by step instructions as I have never made one before. I saw this idea on Pinterest, thought I would give it a go

  • Silk .5 meter or .5 yard

 

Scene Stealing Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Steel wool ( I read that steel wool is very good for your pins as the steel wool sharpens the pin and needles)

  • .5 me0ter or .5 yard of scrap fabric to make the bag to put the steel wool into

  • Glue the bag of steel wool and silk fabric to the base of the cup

 

 

Noridic Delight Instructions

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

Size of Bag is:

30 length x 22 width cm
Or
12 length x 8 ½ width inches

What you will need:

  • 1 meter or 1 yard of black and grey stripped cotton fabric
  • 1 meter or 1 yard of thin wadding
  • Tear Away or Stitch and Tear stabilizer
  • 2 bag handles 38 cm or 15 inches in length
  • 3 meters or 3 yards 1.5cm wide Black ric rac
  • 1 meter or 1 yard of lining
  • Metal magnetic clasp

 

 

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

The photo above showing you

  • 2 layers of stitch and tear stabilizer
  • Thin wadding
  • Black and grey stripped cotton fabric

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

1. Stitch out “Nordic Delight_01” then mirror in either your sewing machine or software “Nordic Delight_01”
2. Cut the fabric for the top of the bag leaving 10cm or 4 inches from the top of the design and from the base 8cm or 3 inches
3. Cut fabric for the back the same length and width as the front of the bag
4. At this stage I recommend you also cut the lining for the bag
5. Add the black ric rac to either side of your design
6. Stitch the front, back and side seams together

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

7. For the front of the bag measure 5 cm or 2 inches from the stitched seam as you can see in the photo above

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

For the Back of the bag measure 5 cm or 2 inches from the stitched seam as you can see in the photo above

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

With the sewn fabric still right sides together, using both hands, pinch and pull apart the corner. While you keep pulling, the fabric will begin to make a little peak with the corner point at the top and the seam lines running down the middle of the front and the back. Match these side and bottom seams. Place a pin in the seams to hold them together. It is very important that you exactly match the seams; that is what will make the lines of your finished bag look great.

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

10. Sew across the peak on the drawn line. Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of the seam.

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

11. Trim away the peaks

12. Repeat for the lining the numbers from 7 through to 8
13. Insert the Metal magnetic clasp into your lining
14. So as the metal clasp do not clasp together I put painters tape over each of the clasps, this makes sewing the top of the bag so much easier
15. Insert the lining of the bag into the black and grey stripped bag

 

Nordic Delight Machine Embroidery Designs

 

16. At the top of the bag fold the black and grey fabric down to make a small hem and then iron, once again fold over the fabric lining and re iron
17. Stitch the ironed fold that is over the lining down
18. To cover the stitching at the top of the bag I stitched the black ric rac, which also gives the bag a nice finish
19. Stitch the bag handles onto your bag
