Owl hipster purse and giveaway!

Last week I bought this owl hipster embroidery file at embroiderygarden.com
Then I made a purse and figured I'd use some of Island Batik's lovely batik fabrics.
Also, while I was making it I thought I'd give it to my daughter to give to her 4th grade teacher at the last day of school :)
 
Very good directions on this and I think it turned out adorable, I might just have to make another one for myself, you know that's the reason why I got the file and these zippers!

Inside the purse is a green batik and there's NO raw edges inside, it's ALL in the hoop! and took about 20 min to embroider.
It was my first time embroidering over a zipper but I tried to go slow (600spm) which was still fast, but since the teeth are plastic and weren't exposed directly to the needle, it worked like a charm!
UPDATE! found out her teacher’s favorite color is purple so I made a purple version (also using Island Batik fabrics)

It turned out cute too and my daughter picked out the fabrics!

Here’s both of them together :)

Now for the giveaway!

That's such a cute little purse Bea. I am a member of her Yahoo group and am always loving the stuff she comes up with. I've got a huge list of things I'd love to buy from her already. I have liked her Facebook page.

Oops. I never realized you had a FB page, although I should have known. Is there anyone that doesn't have one now? LOL I have now liked your FB page as well.

Sorry for the repost, but it wouldn't allow me to edit my previous post! I put in the hoop embroidery designs, ( which I've like for some time too), but should have said the Embroidery Garden Facebook page which I also joined awhile ago...so, I have liked both that one and your Facebook pages, have the Ellisimo Gold with an 8x12 hoop! Thank you again!

Hi Bea, love your owl hipsters! I 'liked' your FB page and I 'liked' the Embroidery Garden page ages ago! Love seeing all the beautiful creations :D

Jackie Smith said...

I Love the "OWL Hipster". In my youth I was in a girls youth service origination (Rainbow Girls) and our CA state mascot in 1978-1979 was the owl. Your hipster brings back wonderful memories. Thank You Jackie

P.S. I have a Brother PE 770. The hoop size is 5x7 but I have a program that will expand to a 6x10.

To learn how to do this artwork you need a bit of training and at first it can be difficult but afterwards when you get the hang of it you wont face any problem as this will become easy for you if you work hard in your training session. For those people who ask what is embroidery it can be difficult to explain it to them as they wont just understand it by the definition, they have to see it themselves the art and then they will get the complete idea about it. If you are interested in embroidery and if you want to be an expert in this art then you need to take this work as your hobby as all the other people do.
