Today I wanted to share with you this really simple embroidery idea that can potentially be a money maker for you, or at the very least, a quick and easy gift idea.
I grabbed a couple of these $5 Fleece Throws for $5 each. I thought they would be perfect for the grandkids for Daycare. I used my Chroma Luxe digitizing software to create a simple embroidered name and used the “nap blocker” feature to add the extra stitching so that the embroidery would sit on top of the fluffy fleece and not sink down into the blanket. By the way, the Chroma Inspire Software is free when you purchase a Ricoma EM1010, but you can also just buy and use the software.
Adding the simple embroidery took an ordinary blanket to extraordinary in a matter of minutes. You could easily sell this on popular selling sites for more than triple the cost that it takes to make it.
I used the Ricoma EM1010 mutli-needle embroidery machine. It made it so easy! You can make this on a single needle machine, too just be sure to create a design that fits within your hoop. The Em1010 easily stitched out these 3″ tall letters on each blanket.
Once I made the blankets for the grandkids, I ran back to the store to get more blankets. I am going to embroider my children’s names on them to use as emergency car blankets and/or trunk blankets. I’ve had one in my car for years that someone gifted me.
I’ve created a tutorial to walk you through from the digitzing process through the stitch out. You can watch it here.
