Winter Pillows

Our couch lacks pillows to prop things up with. You must have pillows to hold your book or to rest a bowl of soup on. I wanted to show off some new skills too, something I hadn’t tried before. It was not as easy as everyone said it would be, haha.

The three on the bottom are applique and made for the living room couch. Patterns from UrbanThreads. Snowman 1, snowman 2 & snowman 3. The Embroidery, again from Urbanthreads, on top was made for my reading chair, which doesn’t get much action in the winter because it is cold in the breezeway.

First one done, I feel bad for this snowman.

Fabrics are from Fabrics.com, but I have lost track of what I purchased. Most of it is flannel except the red snowflake pattern which was a metallic cotton.

The First Stitchout

The first stitchout I created on the SE400 was a stock image from the memory, not terribly exciting. The second I created is the planning stages for a new favor for my DH for when he fences. The pattern was from UrbanThreads and turned out so well that I am looking forward to actually creating his favor. I want to make it a funky shape and haven’t gotten too much farther yet.

My first patch

I was super excited to try my first patch. It is an urban threads design and I created it to cover a hole in the jeans that are getting way too big for me.

The fabric is that black twill that I got out of the bargain bin at JoAnn Fabrics, but would have been cute if it were something with a pattern to it. I created it back in December, but not sure what date. This was a lot of fun to watch stitch out, and I can’t wait to create more.

Catching up

Still catching up on my already created projects. I embroidered and sewed this Reversible Box Tote from a pattern by Very Shannon. It was pretty simple to create, mostly trouble free. I gave this as a gift to my niece for her birthday.
