If you have a machine embroidery business, I am surprised you even have time to read my current blog this week. The Christmas season is the busiest time of the year for custom gifts, and for the people who make it happen. I would like to share one of my popular, super quick to stitch embroidered gifts: the personalized Christmas ornament design. It is perfect for t-shirts, sweatshirts, baby onsies, aprons and even terry cloth towels. Last year my go-to embroidery design was the snowman face from http://www.embroiderygarden.com and this current embroidery design; Christmas ornament, is just as versatile and can be found at http://www.planetapplique.com . Of course, you do not have to own an embroidery business you can still stitch a simple design like I suggested on a t-shirt, towel or other item. The trick is to test the design, use proper placement and add interesting fabric for the appliqué.
Many of my customers request a simple embroidery design to be stitched on long sleeve t-shirts or sweatshirts for the children in their family. The t-shirts look great in photographs and are so festive at a family gathering. Use the last name initial if possible, in the center of the ornament, to make sizing a bit easier for all of the siblings or family members.
We would love to hear about one of your go-to embroidery projects that you sell or make for gifts during the Christmas season.
