Hello friends, I would like to share various project ideas that you can create using motifs from my book DIARY IN STITCHES.   This is the first sewing machine cover and I changed the design for the book. Choose your preferred design and add your own twist. That’s the charm of my book, Mix and Match!     I wanted to show how you can use for hand embroidery instead of machine applique. I think it’s equally charming. If you are hand emboridery expert, your sewing case will be even more beautiful!   It’s just perfect size so I can bring to swimming pool orRead More →

I especially love when people take the technique and make it their own by adding their own little twists—their child’s drawings, a motif that isRead More →
