Greeting Cards

It is so useful to be able to quickly stitch up a handmade greeting card whenever you need one!  This is a clean and simple set designed to look old-school and showcase a pretty piece of fabric.  You can glue the felt to the front of a blank card and envelope sets (4.5" x 6") which are available from many dollar stores or you can attach the full piece of felt to a piece of colored cardstock for an all-felt card.  

This project is great for craft fairs - they can be sold individually or in sets - they are easy to create in a single hooping with 4-8 color stops, 3,600 - 4,100 stitches, and you only need to remove the hoop once to trim the two applique pieces.  Even better, they use only two small scraps of fabric and a piece of felt.  The embroidery designs measure 3.8" x 4.9".

For this project you need felt (any kind will work - soft acrylic, wool, glitter....), a few small bits of cotton fabric for the applique, and spray glue to attach the felt to the cards or cardstock. You can also further embellish the designs with brads and hotfix crystals. 

Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
