I bought a GORGEOUS pattern on Etsy and I am so excited to work on it...

But I just can't decide what to embroider.

I am making a gift for my mother who LOVES dogs. The simple thing to do is to do a hoop or a frame...BUT...

My mom is a hoarder and I just don't want to add to the clutter and confusion of her life.

I can't decide on what to do...a tote back? a t-shirt? an apron?

What are some fun and easy alternatives to hoops and frames?

Would love to hear your inspiring input.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

A totebag would be wonderful.

A cotton dish towel, also known as a tea towel, is fun to embroider and a great gift.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

You could make it a set and do tea towels and an apron.  I think all your choices are a great idea.  I know I would love any of those.
