This is the first in many steps to this year’s beaded & embroidered holiday gift for mom. This embroidery project is already the biggest and grandest if the size of the frame is any indication.
After writing an article about dandelions, I thought it would be fun to get out my embroidery hoop and try making my own version of an embroidered dandelion.
Change how you incorporate buttons into your embroideries with some button embroidery ideas using a pair of buttons from Lots of Buttons.
A gift and a challenge from Lots of Buttons led to a special embroidered Christmas present and a tutorial on embroidering with shank buttons.
So much fun; getting to pick out whatever buttons I wanted. So much indecision. Well, I finally made up my mind, they are here and oh how pretty they are. Just had to share how pretty the packaging is too.
While creating a new Christmas craft tutorial, I discovered a way to blend the fun of Zen doodling with a paper project to create a Zen Christmas tree.
