Freebie Friday - DreAm

This is the second 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 "Dream" 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 DREAM 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!!!

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 last weeks design all made up. 

I chose a pretty retro fabric on the back.

I love my raggedy ann in my studio...she makes a great model...lol.
Come join the party....Whipperberry friday flair
Have a terrific Friday.

  1. Hi, Just found your blog you have a wonderful collection of work. I am mostly a knitter and I cross stitch, but I am starting to embroider a little too. So I thought I would join in with your Friday freebies and make little pillows, I don't have any muslin so will have to use cotton fabric. Thank you for sharing.
