Machine Embroidery

I love my embroidery machine.

I have all kinds of designs and will never get to a portion of them, grin.  THIS design is one of my favorites.  I love that it shows so many birth details.  The baby’s weight -- the postal fee.  The birth town and state are on the date stamp along with the date of birth.  The time stamp is the birth time and the baby’s name is on the bottom of the design in the pink (or could be blue!).


The design comes in two sizes, one for my 4x4 frame and one for my 5x7 inch frame.  These stitch-outs were both on the 5x7 and measure 6.5” x 3.75”.  I made the pillow below for a friend’s grandbaby.  I was really please with the way it turned out.  The spunky pink print really set off the design.  The design above is for a neighbor of mine and the thread color is more of a candy pink tone.  I think I will make it into a white pillow with lots of white lace.  Do you think they will like it?

I wonder, could I sell the stitched designs to moms and grandmothers for them to finish, or if folks would pay to have the pillow assembled for them?  The design takes one hour to stitch out and about 30 minutes to do digitize and place the wording.

Let me know what you think!  I would love an opinion!

  1. I think you could totally sell it either way! It's so cute! How would you sell it- by word of mouth? Or an Etsy store? Have you ever had a booth at a Christmas craft fair.


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment... I just hearing from you!
