Yes, more sewing lol! I’d like to start by saying my Craft Room is a complete write off! 😳 Before my sewing machine arrived I had started some painting projects. While I did manage to get my fence board Home signs done, that was it. So not only do I have fabric, stabilizer and thread everywhere, I still also have the folding table Dillon bought for me set up still with my painting projects.
But… I still can’t tear myself away from the sewing machine when I go downstairs to “play” lol!
I’m sure I mentioned in an earlier post how I ordered a bunch of embroidery patterns online from a place called Designs by JuJu…. I wasn’t sure how difficult the process of getting these patterns from my laptop to the sewing machine. Dillon decided on Saturday that he would help me (I honestly think he just wanted to play too lol). Well, it was even easier than I expected!!! The process of transferring the patterns is pretty much just selecting the pattern you want, selecting the correct size for your hoop and “sending” it to what is considered a “removable drive,” which is the sewing machine. The sewing machine is hooked to the laptop via a USB cable provided with the machine.
When we opened up the PE Design software I downloaded, it was even easier because it has a send option that list includes Send to Sewing Machine.
All of that said, here is the first pattern I tried this way!
I chose the pattern I wanted, sent it to my sewing machine, lined up my threads in stitching order and started to embroider!
This is the pattern I chose, shown after stitching.
I stitched it on a square of plain white broadcloth.
When the stitching was completed I sewed the two squares of fabric right sides together, leaving an opening for turning it right side out and to stuff the pillow form in.
I clipped the corners, turned it right side out and stuffed the pillow form in and then pinned the opening closed.
I sewed it closed on my machine and ended up with a cute little display pillow with a nice Family theme!
I swear what is left functional in my brain is going a mile a minute thinking of all the possibilities of things I can make as gifts and decor!!!
