How to sew reusable make up removing pads, squares

What you will need: Flannel Cotton Iron and ironing board  Rotary cutter and cutting board (or scissors) Basic sewing supplies The steps:      1. Iron flannel fabric and cotton fabric.      2.

How to sew reusable make up removing pads, circles

Here’s how you can create some reusable make up removing pads- in a circle shape! This is a super fun project and makes amazing gifts! What you will need: Flannel Iron and ironing board  Scissors A cup or something in a circle shape that you can trace Basic sewing supplies The steps:      1. Iron flannel fabric and fold the fabric in half right sides together. If you have a pattern, you could do yours wrong sides together, but I was tracing on the fabric and didn’t want the pen line to be seen!      2. Using a cup or something else in a circle shape, trace out a circle on the fabric. The traced circle should be on the wrong side of the fabric.  My circle ended up being about 3.75“ in diameter.       3. Cut out the circles       4. Place wrong sides together and using an overcasting stitch, sew all the way around the circle. Making sure that your stitch is going over the fabric.  I used stitch 1-14 with a width of 5 mm. I tested out a few different stitch lengths, 2 mm vs 2.5 mm vs 3 mm

How to embroider on toilet paper

Here’s how you can embroider on toilet paper! This is a super fun goofy project and makes the best gag gifts! What you will need: Toilet paper roll (If you can, use a larger toilet paper as this will give more room for your embroidery design!) Pins Cut away stabilizer Embroidery machine Machine embroidery needle Machine embroidery thread 60wt or 90wt bobbin thread (depends on your machine)  The steps: Take the first few squares of the toilet paper off of the roll. Hoop your cutaway stabilizer.  Now fold over the first piece on the roll three times, making sure that the folds are underneath itself. What you are doing is making sure that the folds are on the backside.  Pin the toilet paper to the cutaway stabilizer, this part is quite difficult, so just take your time and be careful not to rip the toilet paper.  Before embroidering, make sure that the pattern will only embroider on the toilet paper square, to do that click the button to preview when the embroidery will be.

How to preview where your embroidery design will stitch out

Before stitching out a design, most of the time it is vital to know where your design is going to stitch out!   This especially comes into play when you’re floating your material. An example is, embroidering toilet paper! You don’t want to accidentally embroider off of the toilet paper piece.  What you want to do is click either of the two buttons in the photo. One looks like a needle going onto a fabric with a red plus where the needle is and the other is a dashed arrow going all the way around in a box.  The first one will show you where the needle is going to be for wherever you click.  And the second one is going to take you all around where the needle is going to go for the whole design.  Now you’ll never have to guess where your design will be again!
