I wanted to embroider a little something for everyone this trip. Thought a cooler bag would be handy at the beach, so I picked up these 12-Can Cooler bags at Five Below.
I used a stick-and-tear-away stabilizer in the hoop, and placed the bag so the top could fit under the needle and stick in place. The cooler has thick insulation so you have to watch it to sure the embroidery stitches without a problem.
First bag done.
I did go through a few embroidery needles as they would occasionally break during this stitching. But, I was able to complete all of the bags. Each bag took about 45 minutes to stitch.
|A Cooler for All!|
While I was in embroidery-mode, I pulled out a large, plain, quilted blanket I picked up on clearance a while back. I had wanted to personalize this for ourselves to use at the beach or wherever. So we got that design done. My daughter helped design this one too. We used the Brother software again to get the lettering in a circle-format.
I used a Badgemaster heavy-weight water-soluble stabilizer in the hoop for this project. Did a basting stitch around the design first to hold the blanket to the stabilizer as well.
I'm ready for the beach!! Now I just have to pack. :-)
