When preparing Christmas gifts, I ‘d like to add a personal gift tag. An ideal eye catcher is the gift tag from Inspiration 75.
They are really small projects, easy to make.
You can find them as free download on the BERNINA site.
In the downloads on the computer, I choose for the file ‘Merry Christmas’ in EXP-file.
What do I need?
- Metallic or grey embroidery thread Mettler Poly Sheen
- coloured heavy weight paper
- Mettler Web Bond temporary adhesive spray and standard paper glue
- Medium embroidery hoop
- Rotary cutter and eyelet punch tool
- ribbon or cord
- Embroidery machine (I use the BERNINA 700)
Let’s get started:
Fix the stabilizer in the hoop.
Embroider the first line, it is the basting stitch. It helps you to position the coloured paper.
Put the paper on the rectangle of the basting stitch. Temporary adhesive spray helps you keep it in place.
Embroider the rest of the pattern. I started with silver-grey-green metallic thread, but I found out it was difficult to read. I made another pair in light grey thread.
Take the project out of the embroidery hoop and tear away the stabilizer.
Glue the rest of the paper on the backside and cut the tag out with a rotary cutter, for straight lines.
Use the punch tool to make a hole in the circle.
You are ready!
Don’t you think they are nice?
