Xmas gift tags
- I haven't done this yet, but am planning to do some in the next few days. I thought about it when I was scrounging around looking for gift tags for last minute gifts. I've used cloth gift bags for years and thought how simple it would be to have tags embroidered in a pretty script with a decorative border. Several for each person. We don't generally put who the gift is from, so the tags could be used over year after year. I can't wait to try some!
- Lately I have working on name pillowcases for my nieces and nephews. I appliqued their name in big letters than used flowers, butterflies for girls and sportsmen, cars etc for boys . I even used a appliqued soccer ball instead of the O in christopher. I had heaps of fun making them personal, such as changing collies to reflect favourite sports team etc
Another project was an alphabet quilt for my new born nephew. It was a challenge trying to get a picture for every letter as my machines are so old I use discs.luckily his surname starts with x so I just did a family shield for that one!
I've also done a stack of Christmas and every day tea towels with header. I tried to make each on reflect the person whose getting it.
Next, I might do some Christmas decorations, like covering a styofoam ball

Uses of machine embroidery
- I embroider motifs cut them out and applique them onto those fabrics which I find difficult to embroider otherwise, since I am not an expert. I spoiled a couple of garments by directly embroidering on them so I practice on good matching or contrasting fabric till they come right, and then applique them onto the dress.
My different use of embroidery
I have been making jewelry out of embroidery lately: necklaces, earrings and bracelets. It has been a lot of fun and I have received some nice compliments on them.

Ways to Use Machine Embroidery
- My next machine embroidery adventure is going to be a yard flag with our last name and the street number on it. I may have to embroider it twice to have it readable from both directions but I can include designs that represent everyone in the house.
