Sewing Machine Gifts 2012- A Series
As pointed out in the previous post, I spent a lot of time on the Sewing Forum site downloading FREE embroidery files.
For my 2 High School Grand Daughters I made them a few little bags with monogrammed initial/name.
The larger is a cosmetic bag size was made in the hoop (ITH) and can be found at the Sewing Forum titled Quilted ITH zipped bag. I skipped the quilting step and added a ribbon handle.
The black and pink is coin purse size which is quilted.
Actually it's a smaller version of the cosmetic bag, and you can find it free @ Five Star Fonts Embroidery titled Zip Case in the Hoop. I just up-sized this file to make the cosmetic bag.
The ribbon hoops are made long enough to be able to carry on the wrist if need.
The purchased clip came from HOLLY HOBBY.
I made several tissue cases with embroidered names using the letters on my machine rather than embroidery. The black fabric had so many colors going on, it didn't matter the color of the thread I used, the name just didn't show up among the busy design. oh-well. I've had this simple pattern for years, and after research couldn't find one exactly like mine which is super simple.
Note: I'm teaching a 3rd grader how to sew and this was the first project for her. I hope to show how I taught her to make it on a later post.
Thanks to FREE
