I had hoped to have made some things using the freebies I downloaded this week and last week to show you as part of this post but that plan has gone bust for this week.

I did make a sweatshirt for my mother for her birthday.

2016-01-04 15.25.30

I fell in love with the design when I saw it at Ageless Embroidery. It’s part of the Forget-me-not Collection. The whole set is currently on sale for $2.90 US.

The design stitched out well, though when I stitch it again I will use two layers of iron on stabilizer. The stitching is VERY dense. I stitched this design using a different color scheme than the one called for in the design. The design calls for a color palette using blues…which I love. However, since the only sweatshirts I had in my mother’s size were blue and green I opted to change the colors of the flowers to this mauve/burgundy scheme. I think it works well. My mother was very pleased with the new addition to her embroidered sweatshirt collection.

I enjoy making sweatshirts…especially at this time of the year when it is COLD outside.

Though I didn’t do a lot of stitching this week I did do quite a bit of scouring the internet and did find a lot of cool things to share with you. You’ll find them below.

Some of my favorites of this week are the free-standing lace dish, the violet flowers, the box of flowers, and the garden arbor designs. For a child’s sweatshirt I really love the baby giraffe, zebra, and elephant design. I plan to make several sweatshirts using this design. All of these are machine embroidery designs. The flower designs would each make another great sweatshirt…and maybe I’ll get to those this week.

I’m definitely going to make some of the hot and cold wraps listed under the sewing projects this week. Having one of these would be delightful. You simply put it in the microwave and heat it up and tie it around your shoulders.
