Sweet Dreams...

The latest project in my embroidery class was on card stock. I created the cloud shape and text on the computer and then printed it out on cream colored cardstock. I followed the video instructions from Sublime Stitching for embroidery on paper. Watch the video below...



The first thing you do is punch holes with your needle along your pattern lines, going all the way through the cardstock. Then just stitch away. I cut mine out about 1/4 inch away from my stitching and used embroidery floss as a hanger. I also embroidered a hand drawn star to hang from the bottom.

I love the way mine turned out. My students did a great job on theirs as well. I am really proud of all of them and how much they have improved in their technique so far.




Here is the pattern for you. The "thought bubble" cloud was a template on my computer and I left off the ovals for my class. And, even though I printed it out for my class, I think it would be better to trace the design onto your paper using a light box or window.

  1. This is a great little project! I love dangling star bit. I was just on Sublime Stitching site last night, and have fallen in love with their floss. It's going on my Christmas list.
