For my mom's 80th 21st birthday party (she'll only claim 21 so who am I to argue) I decided to make tablecloths that represented her favorite things.  I'm learning to use my new embroidery machine so making them was a BLAST!!!



First up are the bunnies.  This is the one I like the most.  It was made using fabrics I was given from my great aunt's estate.  I looked and looked and looked for a pattern to use with these vintage pieces and finally settled on the traveling bunnies.  This one isn't technically machine embroidery but applique, but since I used my machine to do the blanket stitching I'm including it anyway.  I followed a pattern from a book.



Mountains and columbine.  
Sorry the color is so weird in this.  I was trying to take pictures under the funky lights in the gym/auditorium where we had the party.  

Wagon Wheels.  
Well, I am waggonswest!   Wink

Leaves.  

Birds.  

Book worms.  

Apples.  

Yellow Hearts.



Spring flowers.

Here is close up of the pansy.  I was so excited when I learned how to make the mitered corners and then use a decorative stitch to hold it in place.  Some were done with a rolled hem, but I had a lot of problems getting those edges to look nice.  

Sewing.  

Native American symbols.  

The room with the tables.  
It is awfully difficult to make a gym look fancy even with carpet for the floor.

Oh my gosh!  Those must have taken forever to do!  There are so many different ones.  Your mom is such a lucky lady!
