Summer Picnic Tea Towel Freebie Design

Our Summer Christmas Sale has come to a close so we are back to “normal” nuttiness around the Bird Brain Studio.  Kendall has flown off to Puerto Vallarto, Mexico for a weeks rest and relaxation…..a much deserved outing for our tireless shipping guru!  Tina and I are left holding down the fort. 

Today Tina is showing about 30 gals how to Needle Felt at the meeting of our local  American Sewing guild meeting.  Should be a fun several hours!

In case you missed the Freebie tea towel from last summer it is still ready for you to print out and stitch. It really is still summer out there but heading into fall.  The mornings and evenings are cooler than normal around the lake.  A welcome change for all of us!400_FreebieSummerPicnicAntTeaTowelEmbroider a silly picnic ant on one of our nice Dunroven Tea Towels for one of your picnics this August and September.  Just print out the design and enjoy a few relaxing hours making a fun summer design.

Cookies For Santa

Lucky Santa, he gets all those yummy cookies all over the world!  Our Brenda made a batch today and I am sorry for Santa, but those cookies will be gone very soon.Before all the cookies were enjoyed by us, I took a picture of them with our Santa Portrait Trio picture plus the Here Comes Santa RedWork quilt.  Both are great designs featuring the favorite jolly old guy.  Embroider a Santa design for your home.  RedWork is fun and relaxing and, happily, Christmas comes every year so there is NO RUSH to get it done this month.  Enjoy the holiday spirit while you stitch and get a head start on home decorating next Christmas.

Transfer-Eze Embroidery Magic

Lots of us have been having a wonderful time using Transfer-Eze, the NEW water soluble film on paper backing you can use with your printer.  Instead of the tedious task of tracing embroidery designs onto fabric you can print the design on the Transfer-Eze. I printed a snowmen for a new design twice – one for Embroidery and one for Needle Felting on wool fabric.  Just pull the Transfer-Eze film off the paper backing.  To conserve the paper, I cut off one snowman and still have 2/3 of the paper left to print on again later!Dark fabrics are nearly impossible to trace an embroidery design on as the light from your light box doesn’t go through the dark fabric.  Transfer-Eze is just the ticket!  Finger press your printed design on the dark fabric.  I found the Transfer-Eze adhered better to the fabric after the fabric was washed to remove the sizing. The printed design shows beautifully on the film pressed on the dark red fabric. This is going to be EASY to embroider!  Add your hoop (we lik…
