FREE ALPHABET LETTER

  • The Chainstitch Script Alphabet continues this week with the letter G, available free in 4" size til 13 December 2018. It is a lovely chain stitch script based on the hand-embroidered lettering my Mom used to sew our names on our Christmas stockings when I was a kid. For best results, you might want to stitch this font with a slightly heavier sewing thread (30 wt). The font is free in 4" size, including both upper case and lower case letters, but you can purchase it in smaller sizes if you wish.

NEWS & DOINGS 

  • I've posted another Christmas project -- click the link to see what's new.
  • When sending me your list of designs, please be sure to state the name of the design you want exactly as it appears on the site, in order to avoid confusion when I'm filling your order. Because these are electronic products, I won't be able to replace a design if I send the wrong one because the name was incorrectly stated.
  • I'm still not entirely sure what shape the site will take come the new year but be prepared for some changes that will hopefully serve us all better.
  • I came across this great video from Steve Carmichael about DIY one-color screenprinting for T-shirts and bags. It's a fun project idea and so clearly presented that I thought you might also enjoy watching.
  • And speaking of Christmas ornaments . . . . here's a link you might want to check out. It isn't an embroidery page, but if you enjoy crafting hand-made ornaments, you'll find lots of DIY ornament ideas.
  • Check out the FAQ page for a short piece on using plastic as stabilizer for small embroidery projects. Find it partway down from the top of the page.
  • Did you know? This site contains no advertising and has no affiliations with any other site. I do not track visitors and I do not share personal information from correspondents.

ANDREA'S FEATHERWEIGHT CASE COVERS

  • Andrea has been making quite a splash with her custom slipcovers for  Featherweight Cases!

Click here to find the embroidery designs she used to make her slipcovers.

If you'd like to ask Andrea to make one of her beautiful case covers for you, please contact her directly.

She's found lots of creative ways to use the Decal Set designs, and has made many different styles and variations since the first case cover!


For a complete gallery of her creations, look for her Pinterest Board called "Singer Featherweight Covers and Accessories" or find her on Facebook under "Andrea’s Custom Featherweight Covers”.


Andrea doesn't sell patterns for the cases, and neither do I, but if you'd like to make one for yourself, I've posted some helpful links on the Featherweight Case Pack page. 


If you are wondering about the font(s) she has used, I understand that the lettering is a composite of letters and frills from various embroidery fonts that she selects to suit each project.

I do not have this font at the moment, but you may be able to find something suitable among the lovely script fonts available from Designs by JuJu or Applique Corner, or google embroidery script fonts to find more options.
