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!

Handmade Highlights – Sew or Dye Shirt

Tina changed “Sew or Die” to “Sew or Dye” in this colorful hand embroidery. She also created the shirt pattern, and has an obvious passion for sewing. Hand embroidering a garment gives it such a cool look. I know it takes a lot of extra time to hand stitch something that size, and I think it was totally worth the effort.

Grab your own Sew or Die design and show the world your passions.

Handmade Highlights – Origami Bunny

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!
