So yesterday I got the printed fabric I ordered from Fabric on Demand with my little 15″ x 15″ panels I designed for my fall class on embellishing techniques primarily by machine. It came out wonderfully, and I have already washed and dried it so I know it won’t run or shrink.
Sew I can play with embellishing one or two of them to make the sampler and save the rest for the class. I am thinking these would make perfect tops for decorative pillows.
This made me realize how much fun it is to use the different feet and techniques we now have for decorating our fabric art projects and I am really looking forward to decorating these.
Sew I had a crazy idea I would love your opinions on. I am thinking I might design some more of these and publish a short book on how to accomplish the various techniques. Then I could sell the “Embellish This” squares from my website so those who bought my book, which will be sold on Amazon, could buy them and embellish decorative pillow tops or sides of bags, or some such. I will aim to get these ready by October so people could have time to make pillows or tote bags or anything they could think of for using them to give as presents. Oh it would be so much fun. What do you think?
Sew happy everyone! Remember to take out your machine feet, read your manual, look at YouTube and sling that bling around!

What a great idea! I think so many people need a “canvas” to start and then a purpose for when their doodle is finished!
Thanks Terry! I appreciate the feedback. Cheers.
