How to make a Card Holder – Clover (Part 2)

,

I hope everyone enjoy the embroidery of 4-Leaf Clover I demonstrated last week. I am going to show how to sew all the pieces together to make a Card Holder. Make sure to iron all the fabrics before you sew them together to avoid the creases. This Card Holder can hold three cards on each side, six cards total. You can always use other color fabrics to match with your desired pattern to be put on the card holder.

 You can download the free pattern HERE. I will show you how to make a Sachet next time.

How to make a Card Holder – Clover (Part 1)

What is the best gift I could make for my friend who just got his new job? A card holder. This is a very simple card holder which you can make it either with a sewing machine or hand sew the entire project. I chose to do it all by hand. I embroidered a four-leaf clover on both sides of the card holder. A four-leaf clover is thought to bring good luck to anyone who finds it. I wish my hand-sewn clover can bring my friend luck in his new job.

Today, I am going to show you step by step on how to prepare the material for the card-holder. You can download the free pattern HERE.

 I will show you how to complete the Card Holder next week.

How to make a Coaster – Finale

,

In the last few weeks, I showed you how to embroider Dill, Rosemary and Thyme using different stitching methods. You must have enough practice of embroidering and looking forward to know how to sew them together to make a good looking coaster.

I am going to show you two methods to sew the coaster. You can choose either way to make your own. You notice that I used a thicker cotton fabric because I want the coasters to be thicker and water absorbent. Enjoy your coffee with your own hand-sewn coaster!

I will start a new sewing project next week – card holder.

P.S. Our World Axiom Pegboard Jars have arrived at Amazon. They are great at helping you organize your sewing supplies. You can find them HERE.

Thyme is one of the most commonly used herb both in medical and culinary throughout history. It is known for its antibacterial properties. They are thought to have antibacterial, insecticidal, and possibly anti-fungal properties. Essential oil of thyme has many fungicidal properties which research suggests that it can be used as a disinfectant where there is mold. Essential oil of thyme also can sooth you mood when you are blue.

Last week we made a Rosemary Coaster. This week, I am going to show you step by step on how to embroider the Thyme pattern. You can download the free pattern from HERE.

I will show you how to sewn the two fabrics together in different ways to make the coaster next week.
