Pami – Flaunt Your Sass!

Pami - Flaunt Your Sass Embroidery Project

Links to the collections can be found at the bottom of this page

Pami

If you like this design, please let me know so I can make others to go with her.

I stumbled across this beautiful artwork and immediately said, ‘Pam’!

Pam is a friend of mine who has red hair and a peaches and cream complexion. Also her favorite color is black.

I asked another friend who knows both of us what saying I should add to it. She immediately said “Flaunt your Sass!” and it stuck. Thank you Mari for that perfect description to this sassy picture.

But don’t let that description fool you. Our Pam has one of the sweetest most beautiful hearts you could know.

It has been great fun digitizing this design with the flouncy hair and darling face. Although it uses few thread colors, it has a lot of thread changes and they are necessary. Everything has to sew in a specific order from backwards to forward.

Her dress is an applique fabric that can be sewn using a wing needle to create the circles on the dress or without any of that stitching at all. The pink applique dress is one such example where I skipped the wing needle stitching. The white applique dress is one such dress where I used the wing needle and stitched the wing needle circles. It’s hard to see that because I used black thread. But it is there.

Pami

I want so much to put her on a tunic, but right now I have a new day bed to decorate and she will be part of that.

Pami is available in 2 sizes

Cottage Love Collection

Cottage Love 6-Inch

Links to each collection can be found at the bottom of this page

I’ve been holding onto this artwork for a long time but I didn’t think anyone would be interested in embroidery cottages. I decided to start making these anyway. I love them myself and am anxious to make projects with them. I have so many projects in mind for them. 

I created several hand look stitches for sewing onto heavier fabrics like fleece and wool, but incorporated them into these sew outs as well for truly original designs. These sew outs I used regular quilting cotton fabrics as well. They are full of details. I can’t stop looking at them!

There are 3 appliques in these designs – house, roof, and dormer.
