Christmas embroidered wreath

Pin It

fillAs promised I am sharing my embroidered wreath. This is a very easy project. The hardest thing was wrapping the tinsel garland around the styro foam wreath.  Using my Futura Quintet and my new Singer Studio S10 I loaded several floral designs to embroider with red thread. I hooped 2 layers of sparkle organza and embroidered many of these flowers in my spare time. I cut each flower out and pinned it to the wreath.

It took a lot resizeof flowers. The purple flower design I found on the Singer Studio. I am including a link to a free design I made using auto punch. I am offering Auto punch as one of the 3 programs that will come free with the Studio S10.

I howreath60pe you  like my new Christmas wreath. Nice thing is I can keep adding things to the wreath using 3-D embroidery.

luggage tag

I opened my email this morning to find this great project from Brother. It looks easy enough for any embroidery machine. Watch the video and try this super easy luggage tag using built in lettering. If you have a machine that allows design combo it is even easier.

I have recreated the tag using the Singer Futura software. Watch my video and see how easy creating this tag as a design is. Optional video link for Futura video.

Embroidery on Ribbon and Webbing

Pin It

embroidery on ribbonI am sure you have thought about placing lettering and embroidery designs on straps, ribbon, and webbing. I will show you how to do this embroidery technique using tools in the Futura embroidery!  I have used auto punch  and editing and lettering options and show this in a brand new video. Take a look!

A lot of these technique involves sticky paper. We sell “Stick it All” and “Peel and Stick”. Both sticky papers will help you embroider items that can not be hooped. To see technique on stabilizers and hooping read this prior article on design placement.  I have loaded a link for Singer video to watch on proper hooping and stabilizer techniques.
