Lace Sachet Bags

This gorgeous project was kindly provided by Barbara A. Turner.

Barbara, many thanks!!

Instructions from Barbara:

- Using Sweet Fashion Roses designs set (specifically the Curly Vignette and Rose and Berry Vignette), I used two antique needle lace luncheon linens to make sachet bags.

- I coordinated the two designs into a set by making the roses shades of dark and light yellow, positioning two on either end of each rectangular doily.

My objective in this project was to make the maximum use of the simple and beautiful lace, while show the embroidery to advantage. I accomplished this by folding the rectangular doilies in half and stitching along the sides of the lace, leaving the ends open (now the tops of the sachets). I folded the tops perpendicularly to the sides, creating a cross-shaped lace across the top. Doing this makes the embroidered flowers stand out, while creating a fanciful top. I finished the sachets with a yellow satin bow. Use some lavender to fill them up!

Mexican Chi & Dip Set

This super-cute, stylish yet simple set of southwest-style napkins was created by Darla Simmons, using our Folk Art embroidery font. Darla, thank you so very much for the beautiful project!

Here are some words directly from the author:

Dress up your snack table with these great napkins. Add some color to any festivities. I used three layers of light weight tear away stabilizer and the threads are from ThreaDelighT collection. The colors are perfect and it sews out fantastic. i used the letters from Folk Art Alphabet. They were easy to use and sewed out flawlessly as usual. Let your imagination run wild and create your own festive atmosphere.

Padded Gift Hangers

This sweet vintage-style project was kindly provided by Barbara A. Turner. Barbara, thank you very much for sharing!!

Instructions from Barbara:

From Rose Essentials embroidery designs set I used Border 1 to create an elegant and beautiful gift. I embroidered on organdy, using tear-away stabilizer to form the �knot� of two over-sized bows, also sewn from hemmed organdy. When the bows were completed, I hand stitched them on to the hanger.
