Happy Day! This little guy makes a super cute, whimsical birthday card for men of all ages. Its loaded with Creative Impressions embellishments and features a new Embroidery Stitch Template! More about that below.
I wanted to create a frame with folded margins on a panel of cotton broadcloth. I folded all four sides and ironed them down. I was going to make french knots in the corners with Creative Impressions organdy 1/8" ribbon, but.....
I ended up liking the knots on the other side better. Here you can see the pencil marks created with the Embroidery Stitch Template.
The template sheets are made to be cut apart, which I obviously haven't done yet. I lined up and marked the template on all four sides. I came up with a stitch pattern and went to work.
Here is the detail of my stitches using embroidery thread. I added CI micro brads at selected points and stacked CI buttons tied with CI twine.
This are the brand new Embroidery Stitch Templates. Very cleverly designed, you can use these on paper or fabric. You can see all the templates and the great variety of stitches you can make below.
