One thing is for certain: with talented mommies or grandmas, relatives and friends, and their embroidery machines, lucky babies never want for fashionable clothes to wear.

 

This week's designs are all about baby, and a little something for the mommy-to-be, too. Infants will look so cute in onesies embellished with Baby Animals in Pajamas designs; sew them on blankets, too. Icons of baby's world, from booties to rattles, are new in free-standing lace, and are wonderful additions to baby announcements and shower invitations.

 

Cover baby garments with designs that flatter aunts, uncles, grandmas, and grandpas. Embroider bibs with: "If you think I'm cute, you should see my... Daddy, Grandma, Sister, Brother, Uncle...everyone gets in the act!

Enjoy the new designs!

Communicating with Door Hangers

Parents of newborns need these! -- Door hangers with a pretty but powerful warning to alert
people at the door, brothers and sisters coming home from school, well-meaning friends:
Shhhh!  It's quiet time! The baby is sleeping.
Parents of toddlers will appreciate how door hangers can add to the possibility of a peaceful home,
as children learn to participate in the rituals of naptime and nighttime, and even lapses of decorum.

For free project instructions on creating doorknob hangers, click here.
 

Pleasant Dreams
It's quiet time -- whether it's napping or night time, a little door hanger sends it's message.

  Shhhh, Baby Sleeping
Don't ring that doorbell!  Baby (and, probably Mommy) is napping. Come see us later!

 

Available in two sizes:
3.82"X9.42" and 2.79"X6.87"

  Available in two sizes:
4.50"X9.43" and 3.29"X6.87"

Time Out for little boy
Learning right from wrong takes on new import when a toddler understands it's time to put up
the Time Out sign.

 

Time Out for little girl
A few minutes alone can be a calming influence for little ones, and they may even come to know when they need it most.

 

Available in two sizes:
3.82"X9.42" and 2.79"X6.87"

  Available in two sizes:
3.82"X9.42" and 2.79"X6.87"

Now I lay me down to sleep
Clouds slip by in the moonlight, and sheep jump over the meadow fence. Time for little ones to shut their eyes and go to sleep. Toddlers settle down when the regular ritual of climbing into bed is fun. Make this little door hanger and a storybook part of their ritual, and they'll soon be fast asleep.
Available in two sizes:
4.40"X9.43" and 3.21"X6.87"

 

 


Request 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 is the request this week:
 

Humpback Whale and Baby
Muriel is embroidering a shirt to wear on a trip to Petersburg, Alaska, when she and her daughter and granddaughter travel there in July. She wanted a design of a humpback whale to complete the images she was embroidering. "While we are there, we will be taking a boat tour for 5 hours in search of whales. We hope to capture many photographs of them," she wrote. "We will also be taking a cruise to view the majestic glaciers, [as well as] exploring the town."

The trip is a gift to Muriel's granddaughter, Nicole, of whom she is very proud: "She is graduating in July at the age of 17, a whole year early, as well as completing her AA degree, both with honors! She chose Petersburg because it is a Norwegian town, and my family's heritage is from Norway."

So, if you happen to be in Petersburg in July, watch for Muriel -- she'll be wearing her Alaskan shirt!

 
Available in three sizes:
9.40"X5.91" and 6.85"X4.28" and 3.85"X2.40"
