I think today’s project is so sweet! Who doesn’t love rainbows and personalization? As soon as I saw this adorable project from Parker on the Porch I knew I had a make one (or five). They are just perfect for giving a gift card, keeping track of a school ID, lunch card or vaccination card.
I love the fact that she left room to add a name on the front. I used the Itch 2 Stitch Maze Bean Stitch to add personalizations to my card guards.
They stitched up beautifully on my Ricoma EM1010 multi-needle embroidery machine, but you can also stitch them up on a single needle machine. She designed them to fit in a 4×4 hoop which makes it perfect for most any embroidery machine. I used the Hoop Master Mighty Hoop (a personal favorite).
The Chroma Software (free with purchase of a Ricoma Embroidery machine) allowed me to add the name easily.
So, are you ready to make some of these adorable card guards? Let’s get started.
