Okay girls, let’s tell it like is! Have you ever had one of these days? I know I sure have! Poke a bit of fun at yourself and stitch out this tongue-in-cheek saying on a tea towel, apron, wall hanging, pillow or just to frame. It will be sure to get a chuckle or two when folks pass by, and might just make YOU smile when you’re having “one of those” days.
This project includes the machine embroidery designs and – just for fun – the hand embroidery pattern too! (For when you can’t be in your sewing room playing with your embroidery machine, of course. You know, traveling, visiting, waiting on appointments etc. etc.) The pillow below was made using the hand embroidery design version.
The machine embroidery designs include three separate floral motifs as shown below plus the saying design. The apron below was made using the machine embroidery design version. The design with the entire saying is sized 8.87" x 10", but it is also provided split into two parts that will each fit in a 6x10 hoop. Design templates to print for all the designs are included for your convenience. Print them out and use with your hoop grid to correctly position and hoop your fabric. (Read the Stitch Bits “Borderline Crazy” blog post to find out more about using your hoop grid and printed templates!)
The hand embroidery patterns include black and white design images to print out and trace onto your project fabric using a water soluble pen. Mirror image designs are also included for those of you who wish to print them on transfer paper, Sulky’s printable wash-away paper or to trace with a transfer pen. The instructions include several hand embroidery techniques, illustrated and explained step by step.
NOTE! The hand embroidery pattern may be purchased separately. Click HERE to view it.
