Meet the Maker
Welcome to SewFancybyJulie. I live in a small town in South Dakota, and have lived, with my husband for 25 years. After his discharge from the Air Force in 1975, we returned to our home state of Michigan. How did I get to South Dakota, he took a job transfer and here I am and loving it.
I have always sewn my own clothing, as well as, for my children and grandchildren. After retiring, I discovered machine embroidery. I love every minute of what I do. I do it to offer prospective buyers options they can't find in the big box stores.
I do items for the kitchen, pot holders, table runners, embroidered kitchen towels, and so much more. I am a one woman show. I do all the product making, product listing and mailing myself. It's a lot of work, but you never work a day in your life if you love what you do. I love what I do.
Please come by and take a look around, my shop is small for now and I plan on expanding my shop as time goes by.
If you have any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can help you.
How it’s Made
This bookmark is made purely by hand. I cut all the fabric, which is 100% cotton. I do the applique and the machine embroidery. I use polyester machine embroidery thread and a polyester batting to give it a little padding and adds to the detail on it. It is made using a wash away stabilizer, which washes out when you need to give it a wash.
I hoop the stabilizer in the embroidery hoop, place it under the needle and begin stitching. There are multiple steps in creating these bookmarks from cutting the fabric, hooping the stabilizer, stitching the design, to cleaning up the outer edges of the bookmark.
If this bookmark should get wet, DO NOT toss it out. It's the stabilizer, and all you have to do is let it soak for about 20 minutes or so, in really warm, but not hot water. You can also toss it in your washing machine and lay it flat to dry. It'll be as good as new.
All my bookmarks are made in the same manner.
