ITH - in the embroidery world stands for In-the-Hoop designs. These projects stitch entirely in an embroidery hoop and require little or no additional sewing. This month the FREE newsletter for cookiescreations.com features this passport design. It does require a larger hoop size as the finish project measure approximately 5inches by 8inches. The entire Passport Wallet stitches completely in the hoop and requires no additional sewing once completed. If you are not signed up for the FREE newsletter you can do so now by going to cookiescreations.com to sign up through June 30th to receive this newly released design. The design will be sent via a link in the June newsletter only. The June newsletter free design link will remain active until midnight July 1st. So be sure to download it right away when you receive your newsletter. The stabilizer used in this sample project is Fusible Fleece which really adds a nice fluff to the stipple quilting while providing great stabilization to the overall project. The new Baby Toy designs also use this stabilizer to add additional puffiness to the outline style of the designs. My supply comes from www.terradonembroidery.com and it is quite reasonably prices and wonderful for projects like these plus purses, etc.
Why are In-the-hoop designs so popular?
One reason is because the embroidery sewing machine can stitch an entire project together without the machine operator having knowledge of sewing. Simply by pressing the embroidery button and changing the thread colors when asked by the screen - a cute project is just minutes away.
With summer here, many will be travelling but even if you don't need a passport, you could slip photo pages inside this little book or a journal of your travels.
With July 4th around the corner, there is an adventure awaiting all of us! Time to have some tea and sleep! hugs, Cookie
