Happy New Year to all!
Well， expecting a baby girl has given me some new opportunities to learn skills I never attempted before…；..like embroidery! I bought some plain white fabric at the street market here in Sicily and after hemming them， wanted to add some baby motifs to the top of the sheets. But how？ I just recently got into sewingpersonalized wedding party gifts， and all I can do for now is basic hemming…；.embroidery using a sewing machine is out of the question. So， after a bit of creative thinking， I remembered I had some fabric markers…；.and I have have rubber stamps…；..and I have embroidery thread…；..alas! It all came together!custom christmas gifts
Here’；s how…；.it’；s so simple and yet so professional looking…；..nobody will ever know your secret!
You will need：
Material (on which to embroider)
Embroidery thread (like the kind you use for cross stitch…；..regular sewing thread is too thin)
Rubber stamps (that have thin borders and lines)
Trace your rubber stamp’；s lines or borders using the same color markers as your motif. (For example， my flower was traced with a pink marker because my thread was pink…；..and the leaves were traced with a green marker because the thread was green). Trace the rubber stamp at least twice to make sure the ink is on the stamp and then when finished huff a little to moisten the stamp and then stamp the fabric.
Next， using embroidery thread， begin hand sewing over and under as you would do a normal hem. Here， you can see I finished the leaves. Pretty huh？ (Sorry for the blurry picture)
And here is the finished flower…；…；because the marker underneath coordinates with the color of the thread， you don’；t see the marker! Looks professional huh？ =)
