Fabric odds and ends (AKA more samples)

For other fabric selections that coordinate beautifully with what you see here, see this post, and this post.
These black and white and gray  fabrics are a negative image of one another.

The small butterfly print has elements of each.
Each of these three are limited in quantity.

Another black and white find.
I love this paired with any solid and a few of the prints I have posted previously.
Adorable dog fabric and accompaniments.

This pink to magenta gradient is SO pretty.
I have Ivy Ultrasuede that would look fabulous with this.

This plum fabric takes my breath away.
I am a purple girl.

Purple and Magenta Batik.  Batik fabrics amaze me with the variations!

Red with Roses.  Gorgeous.

Emergency vehicles on black.  Striking.
 The next few fabric selections are from In the Beginning
and are perfect for reusable Christmas gift sacks.

Journal Cover II: Options and Accessories

This red, black, and white journal cover is ready to embroider. 
What would you like it to say?

Notice the pencil holder, the elastic cord and button?

Matching accessories.  I love my new purse!

The next color combination will be chocolate and turquoise.

Then... Paisley?

Logo Digitizing: The Process

I start with the customer's logo and the necessary size.
Graham Gardens wanted their logo to be five inches long,
perfect for stitching on aprons!

The lovely cardinal has beautiful details in the graphic
 that don't translate well to embroidery.
I adjusted his size, with the customer's approval,
to allow for as much detail as possible.

The logo also has three custom fonts and nine colors. 
The customer decided that two stock fonts, one custom font, 
and six color changes were in her budget.

This is a screen shot from my design program.

The logo stitched out beautifully.

If you have a logo you would like to have embroidered,
contact me by submitting an inquiry on my embroidery blanks website.

I would love to digitize your logo!
