Above: New mini embroidery designs that are perfect for covered buttons! -- Nanette, I was thinking of you when I chose the little bee.
Two big projects have come together over the past couple of weeks thanks to blogging and getting some exposure. One collaboration is with a blogger that many of you already know. The other is with a new acquaintance who found me through etsy. She makes children's boutique clothing and contacted me looking for someone to sew out embroidery appliques to enhance her designs. I am so excited for two reasons: 1. She chose me! 2. This is exactly what I have been hoping to do with my embroidery skills/equipment - enhance another crafter's projects. Right now, I'm on a learning curve discovering the best way to get these out, but things are moving along.
I will say no more right now until all is ready to show, but here's a little peek into what I've been doing for the children's wear designer using the cupcake applique embroideries I already have in my library:
Of course, her work is beautiful, handmade children's wear; I just laid the applique down on a t-shirt to give you an idea. Wait until you see the other designs she has chosen. It's all going to be so darling.
Finally, these are repeats, but you can see how the projects come together.
I think of it as scrapbooking for fabric.
Your Project plus My Embellishments equals a TERRIFIC COLLABORATION!
