National Sewing Machine Day: Show Your Sewing Room Some Love With This DIY Hoop!
Welcome to National Sewing Machine Day! And it may be silly, but for those of us who create with our sewing machines, tend to forge a bond with our machines. We talk to them, we might pet them when they are misbehaving, and we might beg for them to help us get thru this one more project before bedtime, we even take them in for their annual checkups.
Join me, Melanie, from Sizzix, while I create a project to show off my love for my sewing machine using the new die from Jennifer Jangles and this awesome Create phrase die from Stephanie Ackerman. We love to Jennifer Jangles new Sewing room die because it's super cute, but she also made sure to include almost all of our favorite quilting tools.
Once decided on the simple layout of the machine, I added just a bit more color with embroidery thread. This is a great place to either perfect techniques or learn a new stitch, the choice is yours.
Once I finished, I knew just how to finish it off. True, it could be made into a pillow or framed, but I just had to put it into a hoop.
I hope that you have just as much fun as I did creating this project. I'm off to find some more felt to make a Tomato into Small Hoop Art!
Quilt Happy, and Happy National Sewing Machine Day to you!
