Changing Colors Changes The Look Of Embroidery

How The Colours You Use Can Change An Embroidery Significantly…

By Hazel of Graceful Embroidery

Using designs from Rachel Kathryn Bridal 5

As I have been testing out the final designs in the Rachel Kathryn collection I have been reminded again how important the choice of thread colour is, and how dramatically that choice can effect the finished embroidery.


I like to do some stitch outs using other colours just to see how they look and I just love experimenting with colour. I am always looking for the next fascinating colour combination! As I make any selection, I am aware that it is much like an artist with his palette of oils, except mine are on my thread racks on the wall, out of the sunshine. In this case, I knew I should do at least one stitch out in one colour alone, to show you how “bland” it can appear in comparison to the combination of the palest of colours that I have selected for Rachel Kathryn Bridal collection! So I set GFE-RKB-5-9 up and left it embroidering in Sulky Rayon 40 wt 1071 Off white on white dupion silk. The bobbin ran out before the last three colours which are flower centers.While changing the bobbin thread, I examined the embroidery deciding to use Sulky Rayon 40wt 520 Bone for some contrast for these centers. It made quite a difference. However if your embroidery is going to be embellished with hot fix pearls and crystals, they too will make the flowers pop. It is really down to personal preference though.

As the light hits your rayon thread there is often some variation in colour and shine, and the type of stitching and the angle that the stitches are lying in, will effect this too, which is why I have tried to add as many contrasts in the way the stitches are grouped, in this set and also in my other collections.

Quite a few years ago I started to use polyester thread for my embroidery as it is not so expensive, but it lacked the luster of rayon, and those thread spools remain unused in my sewing room as I found that it did not catch the light so much and therefore there was less contrast.

One of my other stitch outs featured Sulky Rayon 40wt 1209 Light avocado which has become one of my favorite greens. At the moment the country lanes around here are a marvelous tapestry of lush greens as all the leaves are in fresh abundance. I have heard digitizes say that when they are out and see something interesting they start to digitize it in their head. I have to confess that I am more likely to be deciding which thread colour would be the closest match. Yesterday when I was out I could see many examples of Light avocado in the trees and in the hedge rows.

This just has to be my favorite time of year, for as well as all the lush growth in the trees, the lanes are beginning to adopt the annual display of lace borders formed by Cow parsley (Queen Anne’s lace) which I adore and digitized a while back, in my Summer Meadow collection. There are beautiful flowers everywhere now, here in the south of England as the days warm up and lengthen, lilacs, wisterias, dicentras (bleeding hearts) and forget me knots. I parked under a Horse chestnut tree and its orchid type flowers were close enough to get this photograph. There is just so much to inspire me each time I go out, but I think that capturing these “exotic” flowers would be huge and impossible challenge. Now you can see why I am not so enamored with single coloured embroidery, there are just too many gorgeous colours out there!

Back to my second stitch out, GFE-RKB-5-2 which is an interesting shape.

This time around I used ivory silk dupion for the embroidery and made a few colour changes.

You can see that I used my favorite green for the large roses in this embroidery. As the final designs in the collection are for the extra large Husqvarna Imperial hoop, which measures 360mm x 260mm (14″ x 10.5″) you cannot see much detail when I photograph the whole design, so here is half of it.

On this close up you can see how the light is hitting the large five petaled flower, at the top right and how each petal looks different. There are 10 designs in this final set and I love this one below, GFE-RKB-5-1, but as for a favorite that is quite difficult. I hope you love them all and find them useful for your bridal or heirloom embroidery.

Remember these are very special designs which will stitch out on all your bridal fabric but also on sheer fabric like tulle, so they are perfect for veil embroidery. It is essential if you are doing this to use good quality wash away stabilizer, and if you are putting any colour in the veil embroidery, do test it first as I find that colours darken slightly when the stabilizer is washed away! This can be very frustrating and I would love to know how to overcome it.

Happy embroidering from Hazel

Top Embroidery Design Ideas for Birthdays

Woman embroidering

If your creative inspiration is machine embroidery, you likely have friends and family who ask for your special creations when they want to give birthday gifts. Whether it’s for a child or an adult, it’s fun to come up with personalized project ideas. Continue reading and discover some top embroidery design ideas for birthdays and you’ll be ready the next time you get a request for gift and you have another good reason to pull out your embroidery machine!

Birthday Balloons

Balloons and birthdays go together like cake and ice cream. For the little ones, balloons are magical, whether they are the blow up kind or are designed in thread. Adults love them because they’re festive, colorful, and bring back memories of childhood.  The ones done in embroidery thread can be magical too and create apparel and toys that become favorites.  Balloons come in bright primary colors, fun patterns, and even pastels. Add a touch of sparkle when you use silver or gold thread in the embroidery designs. The threads you choose set the mood!  Look for fancy balloons done in fancy fills or swirls and curls for added pizazz and appeal. Balloons work well on T-shirts, hats, sweats placemats and even birthday banners.

My First Birthday

A baby’s first birthday is one of the most celebrated milestones. What about an embroidered T-shirt for each month of their first year, using cute animals, toys and other baby “things”? Then, use the birthday design on month number 12. Birthday designs for the 1-year old are fun, fun, fun so make them bright, bright bright! Your special little love might enjoy a shirt embellished with zoo animals, trucks and cars, or clowns too. If their birthday is close to a holiday, consider incorporating in the holiday’s motif. For birthday party guests, embroider a birthday greeting on sun hats or visors (or stocking hats, depending on the time of year)! Children in this age group love anything with bright colors and fun designs.

Birthday Sweet Treats

Birthdays aren’t just about cake. We love celebrating with cupcakes, decorated cookies, and even birthday pastries. Don’t forget the colorful fruits for a sweet healthy snack that all kids of all ages love.  Pile up their plates and watch the beautiful slices and cubes of yummy goodness disappear.  When doing embroidery of pastries or fruits, choose thread  colors to match hues found in real life. Use deep red for a red velvet cake or sweet Bing cherries. Try pastel yellow hues for a lemon cake, cheesecake or mango slices. If you decide to embroider decorated cookies, go with one color for the cookies and another for the frosting and wording. Embroider birthday sweet treats on napkins and table runners for the grown-up party goers.  It will help get them in the party spirit as it reminds them of those years before when they too only had to choose which yummy treat to eat first. For the kids, create a soft embroidered toy cupcake (beanbag) to put in a goodie bag with a few other small gifts to help them carry the fun home with them.

For the Birthday Girl

Not that boys don’t like birthdays, but girls LOVE the frilly fun things that are so much fun to embroider on your machine. We’re not talking only about little girls. Older girls enjoy celebrating with embroidered bling and sparkle too. When selecting embroidery designs online for the birthday girl, look for mermaids, princesses, unicorns…flowers, headbands, tiaras, FSL earrings…embroidered tote bag, coin purse, stuffed animal… the list goes on and on. In addition to T-shirts and hats, what about a personalized fabric backpack for each girl full of goodies from the party? You can’t go wrong when you use lots of bright pink, purple, and teal thread colors in your designs for your birthday girl.

Vintage Birthday Designs

Don’t stop with birthday designs for the kiddies! Adults appreciate embroidered designs too! You can find embroidery designs for sale that celebrate people of all ages. Monograms are an elegant way to celebrate both women and men. Embroider monograms on handkerchiefs or golf towels for the guys. If your guy is a sports fan, embroider his sport of choice onto a handkerchief or cooling towel.  For the ladies, monogrammed cloth journals, pen holders, or bookmarks are always welcomed. Place mats and matching napkins with a birthday motif make a beautiful birthday gift as well.  Mug Rugs are all the rage these days and are such a useful gift. Of course, you can always create T-shirts embroidered with cake, balloons, and fun, witty birthday quotes, appropriate for the age of your birthday girl or boy.

Quilting- The Joy of Gifting

Thoughts about Quilting, Crafting, Embroidery and Life…

It is better to give than to receive. This is a quote that most of us know. For me, it is also very true. I love Christmas, birthdays and other gift giving occasions like new babies, weddings, anniversaries, housewarmings, and more. I adore giving hostess gifts whenever we are invited to someone’s home as well. I just love giving gifts. I’ve never been able to afford extravagant gifts, but I think that my joy in giving shows in the choices of the gifts.


With my love of quilting, machine embroidery designs, crochet, cross-stitch and decorative painting, along with soap-making and cooking, I’ve given my share of homemade gifts over the years. With rare exception, my gifts have always been much appreciated. I’m very glad I took up soap-making and made time for embroidery as these are the quickest of crafts!

During a recent online discussion at a machine embroidery group, it came up that those of us who make homemade gifts rarely receive homemade gifts. Instead, we receive purchased items. While any gift is appreciated, it is the consensus that we would all love to receive something that was crafted just for us, by the loving hands of those we love.

While I do create homemade items for my friends who are also crafters, they never reciprocate. They show me their projects for praise and pointers, overjoyed when I compliment their work (I always pronounce every project as perfect). But, alas… I am never the recipient of their artistry!  Maybe they feel that it’s not good enough or maybe they feel that I could just make it myself if it was something I wanted in the first place, so an item they make isn’t needed.

I had been quilting and doing my other fiber arts for 10-15 years before I finally allowed myself to purchase that first embroidery machine. I had convinced myself that I just didn’t have time for it with everything else that I was doing. I was both right and wrong in that assumption. While learning the intricacies of machine embroidery and discovering all the free embroidery designs I could find online, my other fiber arts suffered from neglect. But, once I stopped discovering and started stitching, my new embroidery passion enhanced all of my others crafts! I’d call that a win!

Not long after this, after a huge bout of stocking up on new-to-me embroidery supplies, I realized that I would like to digitize my own designs. While I could find just about anything I wanted to stitch, I like to think that my style is just a bit different and I wanted to be able to reflect that in embroidery thread. So, new software and thick manuals once again took time away from my quilting. I forgot how to crochet and cross-stitch entirely. Cooking became a dirty word followed by dirty dishes!

Like many before me, I had the thought that I no longer needed to purchase beautiful linens or someone else’s embroidery designs. I could do it all myself. And, like all those before me, I was woefully wrong! While I gained the knowledge and skill to be able to make just about anything my heart desired, I still lacked all the time in the world to do it all.

Ten years later, I have a system. I will happily buy pretty linens and clothing if they fit in my budget. If not, I will think about the time needed to digitize similar designs. If I can find something close at my favorite embroidery design gallery, I will humbly succumb to another embroidery designers artistry. It’s all about time, now.

It works great for me. Now, if I could only convey to my crafty friends that I really can’t just make whatever I want and would love one of their homemade hand-painted silk shopping bags or crocheted cashmere scarf, my world would be complete!

Best Embroidery Design Ideas for Spring

Embroidery designs

Creating decorative crafts and embroidered accessories is a pleasurable hobby. If creating crafts from machine embroidery designs is your passion, you can derive inspiration from everything around you. Spring is the most beautiful time of the year, when the bleak winter paves the way for sunshine and blooming flowers. For embroidery designers, spring offers the perfect motivation to include vivid colors and cute motifs when creating stunning embroidery designs. For those getting ready for spring stitching, this collection of machine embroidery designs will get you started! This blog covers everything associated with the beauty of spring and has design inspirations that you’ll love working on.

Pretty Butterfly Designs

Spring is when butterflies start fluttering around, unleashing the magic of their colorful wings. Butterfly motifs can easily be embroidered on shirts, skirts, and other apparel. Butterfly embroidered designs are also great for baby or toddler outfits, and make for perfect DIY gifts. Use a combination of dark and light hued threads of the same color to create a striking visual effect for your butterfly shape. Start by outlining the entire shape with a triple stitch line and then use pattern fills to fill it in the outlined areas. Use satin stitch to detail the center of the butterfly and embroider the center with a contrasting thread color to create a stunningly detailed design.

Bold Floral Embroidery

Floral detailing is a hot fashion trend.  Embroidery is the perfect way to bring this style to your outfits. Floral embroidery in bright colors can spruce up your spring wear. Floral motifs look great on solid colored crop tops, shorts, and pastel dresses. Use striking thread colors in hot pink, burnt orange, yellow, and purple to create tasteful spring inspired embroidery. 3 dimensional stitch work and additional features such as beads or sequins make embroidery patterns pop.

Blue Bird Pattern

Chirping birds are synonymous with springtime! Cute bird embroidery designs in alluring shades of blue are perfect for baby or toddler dresses, kids’ pouches, and quilts. Spring inspired colors such as yellow, green, and blue makes a vintage themed embroidery pattern look outstanding. A combination of stitches such as triple stitch, satin stitch,  and candlewick knots can be used to create a cute spring inspired embroidery motif.

Word Designs

Create words and phrases welcoming spring with fonts.  Most embroidery machines have built in fonts or you can use pre-digitized fonts to create the words.  Phrases such as ‘Hello Spring’ and ‘Welcome Spring’ can be machine embroidered using a combination of various stitch styles. Pastel-hued thread work, when combined with a few brightly colored details, make for the perfect embroidery palette to welcome spring. These alphabet embroidery designs can be used to create spring-themed table napkins and placemats, brightly detailed throw pillows and lap quilts, table runners and wall hangings, to name a few.

Machine Embroidery

Spring Branch Motifs

Everything comes back to life during the springtime, and trees are no exception! To celebrate the sprouting of the first branches on trees, use patterns like blossoming branches as your embroidery inspiration. These delicate patterns can be enhanced by including little flowers and tiny buds. Simple stitches such as satin and fill stitch are all you need to create elegant embroidery detail. Branch motifs look best when embroidered with green, brown, and a few vibrant colors, but you can let your imagination soar with other colors you would normally not associate with flowers, trees and plants.

Spring inspired stitching is a fun way to welcome this beautiful season into your home through beautifully detailed embroidery. Visit us online at OregonPatchWorks to find beautiful embroidery designs and essential supplies you need to create stunning embroidery projects of your own.



Machine vs. Manual Embroidery: What to Choose?

Embroidery designs

If you are in the embroidery industry, or if you’re looking to venture into it, there are two types of embroidery that you are going to encounter. There is machine embroidery and hand embroidery. These two types of embroidering have their differences, as well as varying pros and cons. Before choosing one, it is important to understand what each of them entails so that you can choose the most suitable one for your requirements. OregonPatchWorks gives insight into these two methods of embroidery.

Hand Embroidery

If you are a beginner, or if you simply want to make pieces of art, hand embroidery is the best place to begin. This method is seen to be more artistic, as each garment produced is entirely unique.

Before proceeding to machine embroidery, you should learn more about the basic methods in terms of possibilities, techniques, and tools. Hand embroidery will give you the perfect opportunity to master all of this, with a minimal investment into the craft.

To start, a piece of fabric is stretched over a plastic or wood loop tightly. The crafter decides the color of thread and type of stitch to use, and they can change these options as the stitching progresses. Every time a garment is made using hand embroidery, a unique piece is produced. Even if the exact thread color or pattern is used, there will always be subtle differences in each separate garment.

The thread used in hand embroidery is different from that used in machine embroidery designs. It is usually stranded, and mostly it’s cotton, silk, or wool. Sometimes the strands are separated or combined to make some areas flatter or bulkier, giving the different areas more texture and distinction.

Machine Embroidery

The process and designs for machine embroidery are more uniform and exact than those of hand embroidery, not to mention, much quicker to achieve results.  Although hand embroidery gives the crafter the option of choosing from many different designs and thread colors, editing along the way requires computer ediiting software specifically designed to edit machine embroidery files.

With machine embroidery, each piece is an exact copy of the original because it uses predesigned patterns loaded to the machine. Every time it’s used, the exact same pattern is produced.

Embroidery machines use a uniformly dense thread which is much different than the one used in hand embroidery. Typically, it is 40wt thread, made of rayon, polyester, or metallic. Also available is a 30wt thread, which is thicker and 50wt cotton, which is thinner. The thread is wound, not stranded, and it can’t be separated to create a variation of texture in any part of the embroidery. However, there are many ways of creating dimension with machine embroidery, by varying the stitch type and density.

Person Using Embroidery Machine

Which is Best?

Machine embroidery and hand embroidery are two distinct stitching methods, each with its own purpose. A hand embroidered piece is more personal and artistic. It takes more time and dedication to produce a piece that will stand out.  It is much faster to produce a finished piece with machine embroidery, but it requires an initial investment into a specialized sewing machine which usually does both regular sewing and machine embroidery.

Machine embroidery produces more professional work in a shorter time, albeit “cookie-cutter” (each pattern the same). There is a broad selection of designs on machine embroidery sites for both businesses and personal use.  The array of machine embroidery designs is continually growing as digitizing artists produce new embroidery files from artwork every day.

If you are just starting to explore embroidery, it does not mean that you are limited on choices. Every expert had to start with a first piece. If you prefer machine embroidery, you just have to decide the design and colors.  The machine will do the rest. Now that you are into embroidery and looking for new embroidery designs, visit us online today at OregonPatchWorks.

Teddy Bear Embroidery Designs

Teddy bears are loved by “kids” of all ages. This very popular embroidery theme has been a mainstay for generations.

The perfect teddy bear is often in various colors that can be quite unexpected and will create admiration in others when they see the article he is embroidered on. For an innovative touch when using a teddy bear embroidery design, customize it by also including other animals.  This can create a fun and playful embroidery or applique design which is truly one of a kind. Elephants, lady bugs, unicorns, bumble bees, etc. are some of the other popular cute animals that can be included alongside Teddy in your next embroidery project.

Embroidery Designs

Embroidered Toys and Games

Did you know you can custom design darling stuffed toys and fun games for your kids, making them feel special, using thoughtful embroidered patterns?   Embroidered games and toys can be made with “minky”, an extra soft and plush fabric that is frequently used for baby and young children projects.  You can even use “faux fur” along with other types of fabric to create toys that will give them sensory pleasure as they touch and play with them.  A quilt made with a plush fabric and cute embroidered cards in pretty colors can be used to make a fun memory game, which is a big hit with kids of all ages. Embroidered finger puppets and cloth books in colorful threads are more ways to teach kids numbers, colors, letters, shapes, and more.
