Special Requests of the Week
Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design
suggestions, and we thank you for sending
us tons of
terrific ideas, which we regularly incorporate into the weekly design
themes. As a way
to expand on designs for specific quests, this space is dedicated to
the "Request of the Week."
Here are this week's requests:
Boy's and Girl's Cell Phones
With "two adventurous kids (3 and 5)," Bernice is ready for the
possibility that they might wander
off during one of their family
outings. When visiting an attraction park nearby their home, she goes
prepared. "I always put little notes in their clothing (with their names and my
mobile phone number),"
Her request: "I thought it might be fun to make
them a 'special park shirt' with a colourful mobile
for a boy and one for a girl] with my mobile number on it.... So if they
run off and get
lost, they can explain that mummy can be reached on that
Whatever your project, we agreed it was time for all children to have
their own little cell phone
so here they are...and we threw in one more for the "little stars," who
sometimes get lost, too.
"The Matzah could be used in a
variety of ways," she said. "It can be put onto dish towels, so
that people know they are for Passover if they are observant; on
a bag for the afikoman, which is hidden
[and last piece to be eaten], or on a matzah cover.... It can
also be sewn on napkins for the Passover table, or used in a wall
hanging with other symbols of Passover or Jewish holidays."
Thank you, Susan for the wonderful ideas and suggestions. We
hope you enjoy the designs.
