GIVE AWAY~Machine Embroidered Vintage Flower Basket

Pin It
Hi Everyone!

When I designed the projects for my Sewing Vintage Aprons book, I had a few samples I practiced on. All designers do this. We want to make sure that the patterns you receive in our books are accurate and will work for you!

I needed to practice a machine embroidered flower basket, so, I stitched up this cute little basket, designed by Black Cat Creations. This cute basket comes from "Aunt Bea's Parlor" machine embroidery pattern packet. I love all of these designs and I'm sure you will too! Buy a copy for yourself!

Here is the cover of the pattern: (note: pattern is not part of giveaway)

These are all so pretty and easy to stitch out on your machine!
this has been cropped, there is more fabric to work with
But~ For now, I'll be having a give-away for my sample piece, above, which I stitched out onto a sweet yellow print. The image is 5" square and the fabric is 9-1/4" x 10". The perfect size for adding to a quilt, or adding to the front of an apron! or even a hot pad or table runner, or even a picture frame! It is adorable....Wait, maybe I can use it! hahaha ......I haven't used it, so, it's time to give it to someone who will! And I hope it will be YOU!

Here's an idea....!  Buy my Sewing Vintage Aprons book, and use it for one of the projects in the book!


All you need to do:

1.  subscribe to my blog 

2.  make a comment & answer this question ~ "How would you use this cute little flower basket?"


Good Luck! I would love to hear your comments on how you would use it. It will give me ideas for other embroidery designs from this pattern packet! GIVE-AWAY ENDS August 16th!

  2. I was already a follower through Google eblogger and became a follower through bloglovin'. If I am lucky enough to win the blog, I will probably put it as block in a quilt. I think it would just be perfect as a block in a quilt either it's a sampler quilt or if it's just one block among some similar blocks. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I love the block. You are very generous to part with the block.

    1. I love having my embroidery machine, in fact, I have two Bernina's and each one has an embroidery machine. I could have them both out and working at the same time....but, I need more space for that! someday......

  6. I think you're right- it would look so sweet in a tiny frame. The sort of thing that would be found in cute old cottage, very homely!

    1. Yes, janine! There is an apron in the book with this design. Thus the practice embroidery design. But, the apron in the book is a full apron...you'd need to tuck under the edges or create some sort of "top" piece...it could work!
