In The Hoop Coasters

In The Hoop Coasters

I love to sew.  I have a new black and gold scrolled vintage-looking Singer sewing machine, I have a Singer Heavy Duty sewing machine, I have a Singer Serger... and I love them one and all.  I LOVE my Brother Innovis 2500D embroidery machine.  Notice I capitalized LOVE on this one.  I have drawers of embroidery design  CD's which delight me to no end, and I put those designs on flash drives so all it takes is to insert a flash drive in my embroidery machine, pick a design and go for it.  Ideas swirled around my head 24/7 for all-things-sewn.  Recently I have become absolutely smitten with "in the hoop" designs and if you saw my recent prior post of the little zipper purse or the cut coffee cozy, you can see why.  I make a lot of 'gifties' to share with friends and family, and that included making bright and colorful coasters.  Well now... even that project has been ever so simplified with an ITH design project.  I found this delight at GG Designs Embroidery here. 
This site has the cutest little designs of all kinds.  I selected, she sent the selection by email and I was off and running with all sorts of cute coasters.  And if you see my sewing items, you know that I love finding projects to use up the smallest of scraps.  Two 5x5 pieces of fabric will make a cute cute coaster. If you have an embroidery machine, take a peek.

Thanks for your visit.http://www.ggdesignsembroidery.com/

You? Sew? Who knew? LOL! These are wonderful, Carole! I'll bet you just spin them out faster than it would take me to get my machine threaded. Sorry I've been such a slacker. It's been a really rough month....
