Animal Print Key Chains… I mean c’mon :)

I was so happy when Parker on the Porch gave me the OK to make a video featuring her fun animal print key chains. I mean, Leopard is the signature pattern of this crazy 2020 year.

Leopard is everywhere.

They are each made on the embroidery machine. I used my Ricoma EM1010 Multi-Needle Machine (link saves you $100), but you can make them on a single-needle machine as well.

I sent this one to my leopard-loving friend, Teri. She loved leopard before leopard was on every display at the mall.

I kept the Zebra keychain, but I love the tiger print, too! Don’t you think they would make the perfect stocking stuffer?

How to Embroider a Beanie

Now this is fun!!

Oh the weather outside is frightful… and my beanie is so delightful. Since we’ve no place to go, let us SEW, let us SEW, let us SEW!

It is official, the summer season has left northern Indiana and the Fall is on it’s way out as well. Winter is around the corner, which means lots of hats, gloves and warmer clothes in my neck of the woods.

Today, I’m going to show you how to create a very easy Embroidered Beanie. I picked up several of these beanies as soon as I received my embroidery machine, however, for some reason I was afraid to give them a try. They are so simple to add embroidery and customize. I used my 8 in 1 Hoop and my Ricoma multi-needle machine (save $100 with this link) to add my logo to this beanie in a matter of minutes!

How to add Embroidery to a Stocking

Yes, I know it’s November and yes, I know we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate, but darn it anyway. It’s 2020 and I can hang my stocking if I want to. I don’t know about you, but I am so stinking excited that the Christmas season is right around the corner. I wanted to kickstart the season by embellishing this really cute stocking that I picked up in the Target Bullseye.

I used my Ricoma EM1010 embroidery machine and Chroma Embroidery Software to add my name. I love the vertical direction as opposed to the traditional horizontal direction.

In case you are interested in a multi-needle embroidery machine, Ricoma is currently offering their BLACK November sale. You can get 0% financing, free shipping and special pricing with their current sale. If you are interested and use my link you will also save an additional $100.

Here is the step by step tutorial to create this easy stocking.

How to add Embroidery to a Towel

I am back with another embroidery project.  I used my Ricoma EM1010 embroidery machine to create personalized towels for the guest bath.

 

Now, I am not sure why Wrigley always has to get his nose into things, but he does.  Every single time I take a photo in this particular spot, here he comes.

 

So, why do I feel the need to add names to the guest bath towels? Is it just my house, or do your kids feel the need to get a new towel for every day that they are at your house?  I get it, they don’t know which towel belongs to who by the next day, so they get a fresh towel.

However, since I have added their names to the towels they are able to use their towels more than once.  It worked!  Simple solution.  I used my multi-needle machine to create the large names, but you can use a single needle embroidery machine like the one I have to create a similar design. I’ve listed the step by step tutorial that I used for this set below.  Keep scrolling to see my embroidery on towels tutorials with a single needle machine.

In the Hoop Airpod Case

This is such a fun, quick and easy project! My favorite kind of project. Can you believe this is made on an embroidery machine?

How many times have you reached for your Airpods and they either A) are not in your purse, or B) they have sunk to the deep, bottomless bottom of your bag where gumwrappers, pennies and stuff we don’t want to mention live?

Problem solved! Crashing Waves Designs came up with this awesome case that can be easily clipped inside your handbag so that you always know exactly where the Airpods are.

I love the cork version but you can easily use faux leather for this fantastic In the Hoop (ITH) embroidery project. I am making one for each of the kids for stocking stuffers this year. I think they will love them.

I’ve included a supply list below so you can make your own.

Lobster Clasp

KamSnap Kit
