Freebie friday- Do your best stitchery design pattern

Yeah!!! It is FRIDAY!!!  I can't wait for the weekend....I love sleeping in late and hanging with my little family.
This is the Fifth week of an 8 week all Summer long freebie friday event!!!! The theme is Inspiration!!!


Each Friday I will give you a design...like the "Do your best" design and by the end of 8 weeks you will have some beautiful Embroidery bowl fillers, pillow tucks, or ornaments. You could also use the designs to make other items like wearable pins or small pin cushions.

Take a scrap piece of muslin and trace the DO YOUR BEST design onto it. I like using a disappearing marker....that disappears when water is applied to it. On my left sidebar is a tip on how to make a lightbox to trace embroidery designs.

Also trace the square around design. Back-stitch your word on muslin in any color you choose. Trim muslin design down....1/4" away from outside square. Remove disappearing marker and let dry. Make into a mini pillow...with a backing and stuff it. One bowl filler is done. These also make great pillow tucks on a shelf. Tell your friends about the all summer long freebie friday!!! The previous weeks were: Dream, Life is good, , relax, and Choose joy.  Look at the freebies on the right sidebar for them.

These lil pillows are very fast to whip up...so lets get started...I will post mine also....it would be GREAT to see yours too!!!!

Here is this weeks done up!

Here is last weeks...in purple floss.
I am going to take the hint and start relaxing...have a good weekend!
