In The Hoop Valentine Coasters – FREE Embroidery Designs!

Valentines Day is right around the corner. I cannot even believe I just said that! I don’t do a lot of decorating or a lot of Valentine crafting, but I wanted to make a little something to make it feel like Valentines.

These are so quick and so easy to make! I am just learning to digitize with the Chroma Luxe Software. I was excited to be able to create four simple designs with very little effort. I will be sharing more digitizing tutorials soon.

I love how simply changing the fabric from cork to vinyl and changing the thread colors make each set unique. This set of coasters could really be used any time of the year. They are very affordable to make, easy to store and let’s face it, you can just toss them and make a new set if they get overly used.

I have included several formats of embroidery patterns for you to make a set or two of your own. I would love it if you make them and tag me on social media. It’s always fun to see others making something I created and I enjoy seeing how each of you make it your own. You can get the FREE DOWNLOAD here.

As for assembly instructions, I will walk you through the steps on my Ricoma EM1010 Multi-needle machine, but if you have a single needle, don’t worry because the steps are exactly the same. Let’s get started.

Sublimation – OH MY!

If you follow me on social media, you know that my latest obession has been sublimation printing.

You may have seen me post a few of my projects, like this Mouse Pad,

Or these adorable onsies,

Or perhaps you saw the coasters I made for my son and his wife.

Maybe you saw these fun mugs

or a T-Shirt or two:

I even made a wine gift bag set. Pretty cute, eh?

So, what is all this sublimation stuff, anyway? Well, in the most simple of terms, it’s a form of printing onto a substrate such as a mug, tshirt, mousepad, etc. that forms a permanent bond. These prints are dishwasher safe, washer/dryer safe, etc. They will last as long as the item they are pressed on lasts. They won’t crack, or fade and they won’t peel or scratch off. In fact, you can’t even feel the designs. Pretty neat, don’t you think?

I think I have all of my stocking stuffers ready for December! Everyone is gettng coaster sets, mousepads and mugs! :). These quick little projects are so fun to make and personalize.
