My mom loves butterflies, so I made her these. I used the QuickStitch Embroidery paper for the 16 oz. travel mug. The butterfly is a stock design on my Brother machine. The polka dots kind of made it a set. ;-)

Quick Stitch Embroidery Paper is like a mixture of paper and stabilizer in one. It is a little more pliable than just paper or cardstock. I hoop sticky tear away stabilizer in my hoop and then place the QS paper on top of the stabilizer. I have been able to embroider any of my regular embroidery designs with no problem with too many stitches or overlapping stitches. I got mine from the All Brands store in Louisiana, but I have never seen it availabel on their website... they call it KIWI paper on their site (not sure what that stands for). I also know they sell it on it comes it different patterns and color... like scrapbook paper.

two years ago, a friend had me do matching/coordinating cups as Christmas gifts for her kids/in-laws. it was hard for her to think up gifts that everyone would like, but would seem fair for everyone too. :-) Like one of her sons was a duck hunter and her daughter-in-law was a deer hunter so I did pink camo and green camo paper with their respective names and a duck and deer on each. Then one couple were both LSU fans, thus I made matching LSU travel mugs with their respective names,... and so on. there were 6 couples. this way they all received equal gifts, but still personal. I thought it turned out great and was a great idea. For one of my nieces I even used glitter thread and it turned out perfectly cute. Have fun!! Thanks.

I'm sure she's going to love them, Kay! And if she doesn't, it already has my name on it.... LOL! Great job!
