Happy Easter to My Peeps!

As you probably have heard in my previous post here, I love my Peeps!  So I just had to turn my Peeps into reality and stitch them on a hand towel.  As I have said, I love my Peeps!!

Here is how I created my designs for this cute little hand towel!

I cut out the appropriate size, and then pressed the with Best Press.

I ironed on Heat n Bond Lite (following the directions) as you see above.

Cut out the shapes following the steps in my You Tube video.

Following the prompts from the sewing machine, I stitched out my designs!

This was such a creative project for me and the entire time, I was craving Peeps!  That 'silly rabbit' better bring me some!

Here is a link for the free STUDIO design.

Since I designed the original Peep in the Bernina DesignWorks software, I have included the free files for you to try out.

Here is the link for the free CUT file.  

Here is the link for the single APP file.

Here is the link for the free DRAW file and the link for the free EXP file

You  must have the Bernina DesignWorks cutwork software in order to be able to open the files.  It does include the paintworks tool to color in the eyes and nose but you can skip that and color it in after.

Let me know in the comments section if you have any problems.

Happy Easter everyone!

A wedding! Bernina DesignWorks 'marries' the Silhouette Cameo!

I am so excited to be able to use both my cutwork tool AND my Silhouette Cameo to cut files that will work with the Bernina DesignWorks software.

Here is the video of the "wedding"!  Ok - just kidding, check out my most recent video in which I have outlined the steps to create a cut file for the Silhouette Cameo.  I am then able to use the embroidery file to embroider it using my Bernina Embroidery machine.

In the next blog post, I will show you how I cut the shapes and then embroidered them to make a hand towel for Easter.  

Enjoy and sew on....

Bernina DesignWorks Tutorial

I thought I would take a break from "Sterling Life" and work on a video tutorial for the Bernina DesignWorks Divas group.

I am a HUGE fan of Miss Kate Cuttable files which include jpg, png and svg files. I have been cutting her files with my Pazzles for several years now but this is the first time I have ever sewn one!

The free file for today can be found here but if you missed it, you can always purchase it for $.50 in her store.

Here is the video tutorial.  Feel feel to comment or give it a thumbs up!

Anyone have any ideas what to create with this bunny?  Post a creative idea in the comments.

Enjoy and sew on....
