Just Because It’s Handmade

not_cheap

If you’re not a crafter and you get something handmade, don’t assume they were too cheap to buy you something. Sometimes, that gift took money AND time. They must really like you. Act accordingly.

Color Inspirations – Cranberry & Stone

Try this earthy yet vibrant looking Cranberry & Stone color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

This week, go bold but earthy with this Cranberry & Stone color scheme. Bright berry reds blend beautifully with other warm pinks and purples, and let your design really pop. Want to know a trick? Reds looks most brilliant next to greens, so pick a slightly greenish grey earthy fabric to really let your colors shine. See how it compares to the original.

Handmade Highlights – Butterfly Hoop

Untitled-1

Aimee D hand stitched these incredible butterfly hoops. I love the colors she used, transforming the butterfly completely from the original design. I love when hand embroiderers take UT designs to new beautiful heights with their crafty talents. Check out the Miniature Menagerie pack for a few more summery insects and decorative designs, all great for hand stitching!
