Time to prepare for the holiday season!

Posted by Carina Thavelin

Have you seen our holiday campaign?

It is filled with beautiful pictures and inspiration, both on what to sew and what to wish for from Santa.

From now until Christmas, I will post instructions for some of the projects so you can create them yourself. Let's start with a lovely Thread Velvet pillow.

Thread Velvet is a technique where you embroider several layers of thread, in different colors and when you are done, you cut the layers with a scalpel. This reveals the colors below and create the velvet effect.

The embroidery on this pillow is included in the creative sensation pro, but there are similar embroidery designs in collection #419 Victorian Thread Velvet. The technique is also included in several other collections if you browse through the Embroidery Designs Catalogue.

Hope you feel inspired to start you Christmas sewing! I do!




What a lovely design. However I would like to have seen more complete instructions to follow exactly when doing the embroidery portion, Some us of are still beginners and need more details.
