Relax- Freebie Friday

This is the Fourth week of an 8 week all Summer long freebie friday event!!!! The theme is Inspiration!!!
Each Friday I will give you a the "Relax" 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 RELAX 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, and Choose joy.

These lil pillows are very fast to whip lets get started...I will post mine would be GREAT to see yours too!!!!
Here is Dream from a few weekes my "Snow on the hill" plant.

And here is the LIFE IS GOOD from last week.....just go to my Freebies on the right sidebar.

I am going to THE FARM CHICKS tomorrow...this time as a customer.  I am no longer being a vendor.....sales were fabulous...but I spent way too much time making things for it and my goal is firmly on designing patterns and artwork.  I do have 2 distributors now and lots of work to do!
Hope to see you there!

Come to the party at....Whipperberry Friday Flair
