I love Kate Spade and hand embroidery, so I decided to combine the two in this next project! Supplies:
Fabric (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
DMC Floss Colors:
823 – Navy Blue
E3821 – Metallic Gold
Type up and print out the quote.
I used a font called “Things People Do For Love!” You can download it too or use another font you like! Trace the quote onto your fabric. We’re going to start with the navy thread and Back Stitch the words. The quote looks so cute!
If you’re satisfied, you can stop now. If you’d like to add a little more pizzazz and tie in the gold dots, keep reading! Separate the gold thread into individual strands.
Take one of the strands and whip it around the navy Back Stitch. The gold thread only pierces the fabric at the beginning and end of each letter. You just weave it over and under each stitch. Does that make sense? Sooooooo cute! I can’t tell you how much I love this (and cake!) 🙂

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I have a cute embroidery project for you! Supplies:
Doodle Stitching The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (Get it here!)
Fabric (I used light pink gingham)
The Motif Collection book is FANTASTIC, because it comes with a CD of all the embroidery designs. It makes it so easy to download the images and print them in any size for your projects! We’re going to start our project by printing out the cupcake and tracing it onto our fabric.
I chose to place my cupcake at a bit of an angle! It adds a little whimsy!! Now, we’re going to dive right in to the stitching!
This entire project is made with the Back Stitch. This project is super quick and easy to do if you’re in a hurry! I love the heart on our cupcake! It makes the cake so much cuter! The blue icing looks kind of like a fluffy cloud! Feel free to add some French Knot sprinkles or another fun accent! I was going to add sprinkles to my cupcake, but I forgot! I can always go back and add them though! Now comes the words!
I went through a phase where I downloaded a TON of fonts off the internet!
The font I used here is one of them. This font is called “always forever.” You can find it here, or you can use your own font!
I chose to place my words at an angle to add some (more) whimsy! Stitch the words!
It’s easier if you use small stitches. You have more control, and it ends up looking neater and nicer. Once the words are complete, you’re all done!! Isn’t it so fun?!
