I have shared with you all many times before, that I sew on a Bernina sewing machine.
And also that Bernina has graciously allowed me to use one of their machines for all of my projects.
(Love my little side-kick.)
Anyway, I have teamed up with Bernina and am sewing a few projects here and there that will be posted on their Sewing Republic site, found here. (Have you been over there lately? The site is full of sewing tips and hints and many other wonderful free tutorials. Hurry over…)
And the first of my projects can be found over there today.
It’s a sweet and simple autumn door hanger that I whipped up several weeks ago.
And the key word is whipped up.
This project is pretty quick and can easily be made during this last week of autumn decor. Especially if you’d like to add a few touches to your home before all of the company comes for dinner next week.
A great use of some of that rugged burlap, mixed with some sweet flouncy ruffle.
With a quick machine-stitched “autumn” right on the front.
See that little beauty at work?
I used the free-motion stitch on my machine but remember that you can create block letters and use your regular stitch as you slowly stitch out the letters you need.
This project is very versatile though.
You could easily change the color scheme for any holiday or season, and replace the word “autumn” for anything you’d like. (Like ‘Joy’ or ‘Christmas’. Remember how it’s just around the corner???)
You could even turn the idea into a non-holiday door hanger and write an inspirational word or two on the front.
And then hang it right on that door knob.
Nice and simple.
