His and Hers Embroidery Tutorial

Download the PES files for "His" and "Hers" embroidery designs. PES is the file format for Brother, Baby Lock and Bernina embroidery machines. I am sorry if you have another machine. I am not that advance yet to convert the files.

Step 1: This is a store bought pillow with an invisible zipper opening. Iron it flat and find the center. Mark with a water soluble pen a 4" horizontal line for the placement of the embroidery design.

Step 2: Place interfacing inside the hoop.

Step 3: Place the pillow over the hoop and baste stitch the pillow to the hoop with a 4" square.

Step 4: Embroider the pillow with the "His" or "Hers" design. Then pull out the basting stitches.

You can find embroidery machines for less than $800! This machine is similar mine. 
I use the Brother PED basic and free Stitch Era software to make the designs I want. Embroidery does not have to break the bank. There are cheap ways to make fun designs.
If you want to find out more about embroidery here is an excellent blog series from The seasoned Homemaker

Enjoy!
