What is your point?
In the previous post, I discussed lightly upon creating designs. Most people who own embroidery machines will want to add lettering. All Sewing Machine users need to change their needles and store pins. All hand sewers need a place to hold their needles, as well. It is March and St. Patrick's and Spring is around the corner! This cushion features a Shamrock with decorative stitching and and small lettering so that you have a way to organize your various needles.
You might give one to a friend who sews but doesn't embroider. How lucky they are to have you there to give them a useful and personalized gift. As you stitch this out, no matter what the reason is, be sure to pay attention to the size of the lettering and the density as it relates to the size. These letters are roughly 6mm or higher. The smallest size available currently in the home embroidery industry would be 4mm. Look at the clarity of the letters and how small they truly are and next time someone asks you why they can't get their 2mm letters to stitch out nicely, you can help them by showing them your pincushion!
