In the hoop Owl case & Laundry sign

One of the other projects I did at last weekend's retreat was to try out an in-the-hoop embroidery project.  I'm happy to say that it was much easier than I thought it would be!

Isn't he cute?
This little case was done completely in the hoop which means no sewing required.  Just a simple whip stitch to close out one opening.  It is for my daughter's iPod touch.  The directions were very clear, and it was as simple as following a recipe.  I had the materials pre-cut and ready to go.  The case is completely lined and padded, with no unfinished seams.  I would definitely recommend this project to others.

Materials I used for this project:
  • Zippered Owl Case design file
  • fabric for outside of case
  • fabric for inside lining of case
  • fabric for wings
  • quilt batting for padding
  • fabric for eyes
  • 7" plastic zipper
  • grosgrain ribbon
  • embroidery thread
  • tear-away stabilizer
  • temporary fabric spray adhesive

I had time to stitch out a laundry room sign too.  This design was stitched on a piece of felt.  I used a sticky tear-away stabilizer, but did not tear away the stabilizer as I  liked the firm support it gave the felt inside the frame.


Materials I used for this project:
  • large Laundry Room embroidery design from EmbLibrary
  • ecru craft felt
  • sticky-back tear-away stabilizer
  • 8x10 photo frame
  • embroidery thread

Happy Stitching!
