This bag is definitely a new favorite, and the two that I made sold quickly at the Flea Market last weekend!
I love creating things on my embroidery machine. I also love the files that other people create for me to use on my embroidery machine. I have design software that I know how to use, but I love finding and using all the unique designs for purchase. I figure, if I took the time to design something from scratch, I wouldn’t be able to make as many things as I do. There’s always new designs coming out that I just would not be able to keep up with if I were designing AND stitching. I also enjoy being able to help out another small business by purchasing their design files then turning it into my own creation on my machine. I have several favorite places that I find my designs, and I have collected so many that I haven’t even sewed them all out – it would probably take me at least a year to try to do that! This is everything I’ve made in the past few months.
I haven’t even gotten to all the different breeds of dogs available for these! They are SO. FUN. And I don’t even have a dog!
These are absolutely adorable and fun to make. They help use up small bits of extra vinyl, too!
These are a little smaller than 6 x 10″ and fully lined inside.
Little Black Book
I have a few different files for these mini composition books and I just adore them. These covers make me WANT to take notes and make lists!
I love these so much. It’s just the perfect amount of attitude.
Last but not least, the latest holiday tree ornaments. The best seller for 2021 was the “Ho.” ornament! I made some explicit gingerbread people and was surprised those didn’t do as well as I thought in my quirky little bubble of people! The 2021 syringe ornament was a good one, too that I didn’t sell a ton of. But, I was also contacted by someone through my etsy that was looking for a customization. She had just had a hysterectomy and wanted to commemorate with a uterus snowflake with the year added to it. I felt so honored being able to help her create an ornament! -AN
Pikachu bag using yellow fleece, lined with satin. I made this for a friend’s birthday (she loved it). His adorable little face is an applique, and I also added a Pokeball snap tab on the zipper pull.
Design by Off With Their Threads
I used glitter vinyl for this purse/bag and red satin for the lining. It turned out really good, and it matches the hair accessories I also made. I love addition of the spider dangling on a ribbon; this was a great design.
Design by String Theory Fabric Art
In-the-hoop machine embroidered bags. I really love the ITH projects, but they make me nervous! If you have ever tried one, surely you know what I mean! These bags turned out well enough to get listed in my etsy shop. The designs came from a couple different places (Off With Their Threads and Urban Threads). I really appreciate all the variety I can find when it comes to projects and designs. If I were to design something from start to finish (create the art, digitize the art, test the design, create the product, list the product), I would never get anything done! Buying these designs from other like-minded shops helps me and supports their small businesses!
This is a small bag I made for my aunt for her birthday. We are both very big Prince fans! He and I share the same birthday, and I was lucky enough to see him live in concert at least once. This was just a vector image I found online (it was everywhere) and I digitized it with a music note fill pattern. I don’t have too much experience digitizing, and my software isn’t fancy but it did a nice job with this one! I actually think the design looks way better against a white or lighter background as opposed to how it looks on the black bag. Nevertheless, my aunt loved it! I miss Prince so much!!
