I made this hummingbird wreath ornament for @Lynx2Lancer for the ongoing ornament swap (which is still accepting new swap members!). I originally envisioned a floating hummingbird in a Christmas ball ornament with some flowers and greenery attached inside the ornament, but that ended up being too crowded, so I went with an embroidery hoop instead. The beautiful hummingbird embroidery file came from Sonia Showalter Designs.
Cool! How many colors of thread does that take?
Splenderiffic! I know she loved this and I even bet you made her cry. It’s really special.
It’s absolutely spectacular!
This is just stunning. I’m sure @Lynx2Lancer loves it. It is just perfect for her.
The color change sheet called for 9 colors total, but I used 7. I made the wings the same color as the tail and tail accent. There was a bit of trial and error until I found colors that I was happy with.
Super cool! I love the 3D machine embroidery. What a cool way to use it!
So pretty! I like it in the open hoop with the flower decoration.
That is amazing! What a great way to frame out an embroidery piece! Did you use water soluble stabilizer? (Which i recently found out about thanks to you!)
Wow! That is beautiful!
I did indeed use water soluble stabilizer and I only did a light rinse to help keep the bird stiff. I’m glad I helped you discover such stabilizer (though I’m not sure how I managed to accomplish that), it’s pretty handy to have around! I also use it any time I’m sewing jersey knit (if I don’t, I end up with my knit fabric all bunched down in the needle plate area - super frustrating!).
@bethntim, have you made anything exciting with your embroidery machine lately? I’ve been on the lookout for any new posts you may add.
I did make a reversible kitchen towel that was super cute! And I bought 2 more designs but haven’t stitched them out yet
Ooh, that is cute - it has the look of hand embroidery. I like the single color design and the fact that it’s reversible!
Its reversible because I only had 1 towel but 2 designs!
Marvelous job! Gorgeous colors, awesome bird!!!
Congratulations! This awesome project is a Featured Project this week!
That’s great, thank you!
