Week 3: Need more time? The value of "ready to embroider"!

This free gift design on the coaster is one of my favorites for turning out fast holiday presents and is in the CookiesCreations.com newsletter going out today.

Quick to stitch and therefore it is great for last minute gifts.  Not all of us use stemmed glasses and these ready made coasters from allaboutblanks.com fit the bill.  And the design fits the center nicely. I did a few in Red & Green for gifts but I didn't photograph them, just my luck!

Idea TIPS:  I went the extra step and added a small monogram in the center.  You can easily accomplish the same thing with the built in fonts in your embroidery machine or software. Or if you have our Mini 2 designs, you can fit the poinsettia in the center as well, and perhaps put the same matching motif on cocktail napkins!  Or do them in blue and use the Star of David or Snowflake in the center.

How do you get your free design? 

I am sending out the design today to all the subscribers on the newsletter.  If you are not a subscriber you can join easily from the CookiesCreationsWebsite Fan Page and Join the list, or from CookiesCreations.com in the upper right corner.

And what about the fan page?  Yes, new projects are being added there as well.  Tis the season of Joy!  "EnJOY" ~ Cookie
