This cutwork clutch is a project I created for an event a couple of years ago. It is a fun way to learn how to put designs together to create a new design and learn how to use the cutwork needles. If you have the Epic you can read more about how to use cutwork needles in embroidery by looking at the techniques and tutorials about it in the JoyOS advisor and then following the instructions for the project. If you have other machines you will to use the completed design and make it smaller because it is meant for the 360 x 260 hoop.

A different kind of embossing to try! You can download the project instructions by clicking on the link below. If you have an Epic or an Icon, you can make the larger one for the 360 x 260 hoop, and if you have a Diamond, Ruby or Topaz 50 you can use the design for the 360 x 200 hoop. I posted this link awhile ago, but new viewers wanted it posted again.

For those of you interested in the yarn art designs. The first pictures shows two sets of designs. The top two are not overlapped enough. The lower two designs in the picture are overlapped well so they won't need to be sewn together. The second and third pictures are two different ways you can overlap the same design for the scarf. Have fun!

Pop up stitches on the Epics and Brilliance are used to make the tree! Fascinating Idea!

Give your project some dimension with pop-up stitches! We used one layer of glitter mesh and one layer of tulle to add additional texture to our tree “branches.” Available on the DESIGNER EPIC, EPIC 980Q, DESIGNER BRILLIANCE 80, and BRILLIANCE 75Q #husqvarnaviking #sewworthit #holidaysewing
