Design Team Wednesday with Nancy Damiano!

Design Team Wednesday with Nancy Damiano!

Hi everyone! Nancy here today with a crafty tutorial featuring embroidered tags. Nothing says handmade quite like sewing. I also love the personalized aspect of embroidery.


I started this project with muslin tags from the Happy Things collection by Pinkfresh Studios. I love the dipped dye look of the fabric tag. I took it one step further and added an embroidered ombre letter to each tag.  


I chose “C” and “A” to represent California which is the topic of my page. You could do family initials, numbers or simple icons to customize them to your own story.


1. Start with an embroidery template (this alpha kit by Amy Tangerine is a favorite), a piercing tool, mat, and 2 skeins of embroidery floss in a medium and dark shade of one color and 1 skein in a cream color that matches the tag.


2. Use the piercing tool and template to poke holes through the fabric to create a sewing guide. I started with the outside portion of the letter first. Begin stitching at the top with the cream color floss, then switch over to the medium shade and finally end the letter with the darkest shade.


3. Next, line up the template and poke the center outline of the letters. Repeat the sewing technique above start with the top of the letter in cream and ending at the bottom with the darkest shade.


4. Use Versafine or Staz-On ink to add a stamped image to the fabric tag. The trickiest part of this technique is piercing the holes with a wide enough needle so that you can still see the pattern when you remove the template.  TIP: You could carefully use a very sharp pencil to mark small dots where the sewing lines would be. Just make sure they are very light marks. 

Happy customizing your embroidery to your stories. It's easier than it looks!

  55. marylouh August 19, 2015 at 1:39 pm

    I see hot air balloons on the paper. The ice cream cone stencil is a fun idea.
    The tags are very pretty. I was never very good at regular embroidery – my stitches were always wonky. I stuck with counted cross-stitch or needlepoint. Had a point A to go to a Point B.
    Looked so much better.
    thanks for sharing.
