Embroidered Bibs


One of the most enjoyable things I have ever done is purchase my embroidery machine. I purchased a Husqvarna/Viking and chose the Topaz 30 model. My previous sewing machine had been a Viking and after nearly 30 years of wonderful service from this machine, I ended up with a Viking again. Did my research though: Bernina, Pfaff, Brother, etc. All are wonderful and depending on what you want to spend you can get anything or any feature imaginable.

This machine was a splurge, however, it has been wonderful for me and for my daughters. I have now become a source of hand made gifts for my daughter’s friends and for the family. Everything from embroidered napkins, placemats, tablecloths, bibs. baby clothes, you name it. What a wonderful and personal way to make your gifts unique. Here are some we did on purchased bibs.   They are appliqued and embroidered. It is such a fun way to use the littlest scraps and the bright colors were a delight to work with.  What do you think?

About JoAnne Freeman

My name is JoAnne Freeman. I am married to my best friend, almost 35 years already! We have three wonderful children and two beautiful grand daughters. I am been sewing since I was five years old, in fact my earliest memory is sitting in my Mom's lap with her hands carefully placed over mine as we sewed a scrap quilt. Sometimes when I am sewing I am struck by how much my hands look like hers. Deja Vu moments. I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 12 years, seriously addicted for about 5 years. I discovered Copic markers about a year ago and have to add this to my other addictions (fabric, digital stamps, ribbon, card stock and scrapbook paper, machine embroidery designs to list a few). I have completed my Copic certification and hope to complete the Intermediate certification in 2012. My excitement with this new blog stems from my delight and enjoyment that I have in following so many of the talented artists that blog out there! I learn everyday, shamelessly watch tutorials and LOVE the outlet that these crafts provide for showcasing the talent out there.
