Color Inspirations – Moroccan Summer

Try this vibrant and sunny Moroccan Summer color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

Summer is well and truly here and it’s high time to take some bright and sunny inspiration from it! This week, go as summery as you can with this vibrant Moroccan Summer color scheme. Stitch a light stitching design on an airy, light colored fabric to really let the feel of summer shine through. Bright white and pops of summery floral hues complete the warm weather look. See how it compares to the original.

Kim took the origami bunny design to a whole new dimension when she added all satin stitching to the basic outlines. The weight of her satin stitches add such a nice depth and interest to her piece. Well done Kim!

Try your own satin version of the Origami Bunny, or try the other cute animals included in this Origami border design.

Flickr user Tipsy Fox took the pockets off her 4 year old son’s jeans and monogrammed one with ZSC from the Steampunk Alphabet, and the other with a little Rabble Robot. What a super cute way to personalize a pair of jeans for a little man!

Color Inspirations – Midnight Confetti

Try this festive & bold Midnight Confetti color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

Dark fabrics don’t mean you need to use dark colors. Contrast some deep midnight blues with bold colors using this Midnight Confetti color scheme. Pops of bright pink and a flash of gold add elegance and depth to this festive and feminine color scheme. See how it compares to the original.
