I’m super excited to be here on Skip To My Lou today playing along with the Holiday Bake Craft & Sew Along. Such a fun idea and so many amazing gift-giving ideas shares already. I hope you enjoy my contribution.
Along the outer edge, about 1/2 inch in, sew a thick stitch all around the entire square. I recommend a satin stitch, which is just a zig zag set to it’s tightest stitch setting. I have a few decorative satin stitch options on my machine, so went with those
Now, as close to those thick stitches as you can, without clipping the actual stitch/threads, trim the outside edges
All the way around
I used my light box, but you could also tape the image, then the hankie, to a well-lit window and trace that way.
Not as fancy, but it works and is SUPER fast. And if you use variegated thread, it makes it more fun.
Embroider some initials, a favorite flower or two on a set and you have a wonderfully personal gift your recipient is sure to not be getting from anyone else.
And if you need a few more ideas, I’d love to have you check out my blog where I share tutorials and patterns for everything from reusable kitchen towels for your mother-in-law to fun wristlets for your girlfriends to fabric pots and pans for the kids on your list
