TUTORIAL: DIY CUSTOM MONOGRAM EMBROIDERED FABRIC ENVELOPE

TUTORIAL: DIY CUSTOM MONOGRAM EMBROIDERED FABRIC ENVELOPE

Easy Sewing Project for Mother’s Day or Any Special Day ♥

I was recently going through memory boxes and came across letters from a few people so dear to my heart that have since passed away.  This made me think, I hardly write letters anymore!  An email, text, and the occasional phone call – that’s the trend these days.  With Mother’s Day coming up I thought this would be a perfect time to get the pen out.  Even better, embroider a custom envelope Mom can keep the letters in 😊

Each year I try to come up with something unique and personal to send my Mom on Mother’s Day.  She love’s handwritten letters, so why not add a custom monogrammed envelope that she can keep the letters or use for something else – maybe to hold makeup or coupons.  Something small she can carry that will remind her how special she is to all of us kids ♥

This project is very easy and only takes about 30 minutes (even faster if you are on the Brother 10-needle)

Supplies:

To read the full blog, head over to my post as a Brother Expert Consultant on the Brother Stitching Sewcial. This envelope is a cute idea for any gift, now I just need to add the personal note ♥Let me know what you think and be sure to share photos of your embroidered envelope.  #brothersews #angelawolf

Happy Mother’s Day ♥

DIY Tutorial: How to Design Felt Embroidered Heart Decorations

DIY Tutorial: How to Design Felt Embroidered Heart Decorations

I am always looking for cute decorations for Valentine’s day, maybe it’s just that I love the color red 😊  Custom embroidered felt hearts is a fun way to share the love.  This is a quick tutorial using My Design Center on the Brother sewing machine.  Photo 1

Supplies: felt, tearaway embroidery stabilizer, water soluble topper, embroidery thread, scissors

  1. Start by going into MY DESIGN CENTER in the Brother Embroidery Machine. Choose the hoop size you plan on using.  I am using the 14” x 9 /2” so I can embroider a lot of hearts at the same time.

Click on the SHAPE.  You will find a heart shape on the first page, but if you have the upgrades or THE Dream Machine 2 click on the icon for additional shapes.

On this page you will find a few different heart shapes, choose you favorite.

Alter the size of the heart if you want it larger or smaller. Send the design to embroidery, but before you set the design check the stitches. There are five options.  I choose the satin stitch, but there are other fun one’s too.

 

I decided to widen the ZIGZAG WIDTH. Save the design if you want to quickly access it later and click SET.

Click on ADD and choose a font.

 

Type in your “Valentine Message” and remember you can make the letters large, medium, or small and there are options for capital and lower case letters. Photo 26

DIY Design & Sew a Custom Bowl Cover

DIY Design & Sew a Custom Bowl Cover

Do-it-Yourself Custom Bowl Cover

This is such a fun easy DIY  project to dress up a bowl, I could definitely see using different fabrics for each season!  To get started, choose a bowl that you want to cover.  The bowl can be glass, metal, plastic, you name and it can be any size. (Note: I am using a blue bowl so you can see it, try to choose a color that will coordinate with your fabric or theme).

Supplies: 

  • 2 pieces of cotton fabric cut the dimensions of your bowl (see below)
  • 2 packages of 1 inch double fold bias tape
  • 2 packages of grommets
  • measuring tape
  • pins
  • fabric marking pencil or tailors chalk
  • bowl
  • narrow satin ribbon
  • sewing machine used: PQ1500

 

1.       Let’s get started by measuring the bowl so we can cut our fabric (remember you can use ANY size bowl :)).  Turn the bowl over and measure from one side to the other as shown.

2.       Cut a circle out of each fabric the same size as the measurement were recorded on the bowl.  

3.       Starting with one of the circle pieces of fabric, wrap the bias tape around the edge of the fabric and pin all the way around the circle.  Stitch along the edge of the bias tape, securing it to the edge of the fabric. 

 

To read the full blog and learn how to design your own bowl cover, head over to my post as a Brother Expert Consultant on the Brother Stitching Sewcial.  This is such a quick way to customize any bowl, I can’t wait to try different fabrics for the holiday season!

Cheers,
