Cute Kids Embroidery Ideas

The first step for adding machine embroidery to fabric or “ready-mades” is to hoop the fabric. Sounds simple, yet with each different fabric type and/or shape of the project, there are valuable tips and techniques that make that hooping process simple. On Sewing With Nancy guest and professional embroiderer Marie Zinno and Nancy give you five lessons during this featured episode of Hoop It Up—Guide to Successful Embroidery.

The randomly selected winner of the I Sew For Fun Book from Nancy’s Notions, from the May 5 post is Beverly. Her comment was:

My grandmother’s treadle machine was my first sewing experience, and I would love to teach a granddaughter to sew like me. I think the owl pillow looks so cute, but the carryall for notebooks and pens might be a more practical first project.

    These hats are so adorable! I belong to a sewing/blanket ministry in our nearby church where we make fleece pants, hats and blankets for children of all ages and then donate them to shelters or for those from the church going on mission trips. How special the children would feel in such precious hats!
