I was so happy when Michelle from Needle Little Embroidery contacted me about stitching some of her designs into finished projects! I've been wanting to stitch designs from more designers as I'm wanting to learn the art of digitizing myself. She started out by sending me these two lovely embroidery designs for Valentine's day.
Heart of Love is shown above. It is done in all white thread stitched on a polyester organza. I've been using one of my favorite items, mylar, to add a little more shine to it.
Here the Amore' Heart is stitched in three colors of peach with the silver mylar. The mylar was floated on top. When the heart finished stitching out I stopped the machine and tore away the excess mylar from both the outside as well as the inside of the heart. Then I finished stitching the design.
Of the four I did, the Heart of Love stitched in all white with the silver mylar is my favorite. Our daughter Katie is getting married this summer and we plan to use these sweet bags in her wedding or reception. They are beautiful.
I have to say just a couple more things. Michelle at Needle Little Embroidery http://needlelittleembroidery.com/ is the nicest lady to work with. Also, I am thrilled that she has included a basting stitch for these designs. I can't tell you how many times I've wished for that on other designs. It just holds everything perfectly in place with no shifting. If you don't want the basting stitch, just advance to the next thread color and bypass it.
Blessings to you all,
