These are beautiful and I thought I had them too. Nope ! When I looked on Emblibrary I tried various combinations to search and these birds don't appear. Do you still have an item number you could post? Thank you vor any help.
Hi Sharon. I found the bird pack used in the above project.
Emblibrary pattern pack Number X15009 or X15010 depending on the size you want to do. And it is on sale at the moment. Just bought it myself. Love how the coasters turned out.
The pack is called A DAYS OF THE WEEK BIRDS AND CHRISTMAS BLOOMS DESIGN PACK
Thank you so much!!!! I did not think to add Christmas to the dow. Thank you again.
One more nosy question Please. What size works best for the coasters.
As you may have guessed I haven't made any type of rope coaster of bowl but find it very interesting. Thank you for adding needle information and all the other comment you shared.
They can be any size you like. These are approx 4.5” and designs are just under 4”. I try to stay close to 4 or 4.5”, and adjust based on the design size and diameter of rope used. I try to leave at least one ring around the edge to frame them.
Thank you again. Big grin here, I just thought the rope was all one size. ;-) Lots to learn as you can see, Zoe
Оригинальная идея с бельевым шнуром. Птички великолепны!
They turned out beautiful. I used the cotton clothesline years ago and then a new girl took over for me on sewing club so this became a 'new' project to do. Mine turned into a beehive with lid. I love it. I added FSL embroidered flowers and a bee to it. My first try was fabric covered rope and still use today for coasters. I've not embroidered on any yes but that teacher did. Again, beautiful designs and sure enhanced the rope. Great job.
Thank you. I would love to see your bee hive. It sounds beautiful, especially with the FSL added.
That’s something I haven’t done yet, make a lid for my rope baskets. I have made several bowls and baskets in various shapes and sizes, but none with lids. Maybe next time.
Today it is on page 27 on the projects tab. I don't know how to bring it up to the top again. Maybe if I make a comment on it again. Will try that.
Thank you peafarm for bringing you beehive up. So so creative. Left remark over there. ;-)
Well done they have turned out beautifully. I know your SIL will love them. I hope you can sit out on her new balcony and test out these beauties.
What does the back of these look like, did you have any trouble going through that thickness? Love Chris
Thank you. No, no trouble at all. I use 75/11 or 80/12 sharp needles most of the time and they work fine. This group of designs are lite and airy, done in the sketch style I think. So the backs are pretty tidy after clipping the jumps and thread tails.
Great job... clothesline is become so very popular to combine with embroidery...
Thanks. Yes, I see bowls, coasters, placemats, tote bags, and baskets everywhere these days embellished with embroidery. I have to admit, they are fun to make.
Beautiful job and what a great idea of gifts of any kind. I'm in the process of making a bowl but stopped to put the embroidery on. Would you mind sharing where you got these beautiful birds? Thanks - Sandie
Thank you. They are from a DOW pack at Embroidery Library. I just left off the Day text, as it wasn't necessary.
Thank you. I thought I had these birds but I don't - yet.
These are so beautiful. I am sure your sister-in-law will LOVE them. Those lightly stitched birds are perfect on the coasters.
Thank you Cuties, for your kind words. These were fun to make and stitched up quickly. Seriously- it took longer to thread my machine than it did to actually complete the the stitching. I will definitely do this type of project again with a variety of designs. This year’s birthday and Christmas gift list might just include some new coasters.
Those are beautiful , Would you mind giving some details about how you made them? Did you have to change settings on machine to stitch on the cording? And is cording cotton or something else,did you make the coasters? Hope not to many questions.
Thanks Worthy. Yes, I did make the coasters, using cotton clothesline. I did not need to change any settings on my machine, and they stitched out just fine. I imagine some machines might need the thread tension or presser foot adjusted, but luckily, mine handled the job easily with standard settings. Give it a try.
Thank you for responding. It is something I have been wanting to try. Zoe
Creative idea, well executed! What a perfect housewarming gift! And they look great too! Good call!!
Oh they are most lovely .She will be pleased c:):)
Lovely! I hope the two of you are soon able to visit and enjoy the balcony.
Would have thot a problem, but success, and they are beautiful.
They stitched out beautifully. You are so brave.
