The Contest: You + Words + Needle + Thread = Embroidery Joy.
Use embroidered text or font anyway you see fit to adorn a fabric item in a creative way. Use letters to create something as short as a monogram or as long as a novel. Embroider by machine or by hand on any item you want, from samplers to bags to sheets to clothes to whatever your crafty mind can dream up. Check out some of our embroidery tutorials for inspiration: Mason Jar Pincushion, Cozy Embroidered Clock, Makeup Washcloths, Monogrammed Hair Clips One (hand) and Two (machine), Boo Doorbell Cover, Start Stitching Beginner’s Hand Embroidery Tutorial, Personalized Nursery Art and more that we will be posting over the next few weeks. Just make sure you “use your words” somewhere on your project. We will collect all of your droolicious entries and our panel of judges will select a winner!
