DMC Summer Blog Hop: Cross Stitched Micro Quilt Cuff

I am so excited to have been asked by Bev of Flamingo Toes to be a part of the DMC Summer Blog Hop she coordinated! We’re also all be doing giveaways for a fabulous DMC prize pack! Those details are at the bottom of this post. I was given the choice of creating a tutorial for either DMC‘s stitchable cork, stitchable mesh, or faux leather cuff. I jumped on the opportunity to create a pattern and tutorial for their stitchable cuff. You may remember I created two other projects using the stitchable cuff: a cabbage rose and a color block pattern.

I have been on a quilting kick lately, and if you follow me on Instagram, you know I started a quilted table runner, and I’ve designed and painted two mini barn quilts. When I was brainstorming my project for this blog hop, I knew I had to somehow incorporate a quilt block pattern. The basis for this design is the log cabin quilt block. I was so excited to start after I figured out the design, I forgot to take the tutorial pictures! So you’ll notice the cover pictures and the tutorial pictures are of two different colored cuffs 🙂

Read on to learn how to make this pretty Cross Stitched Micro Quilt Cuff and download the FREE pattern, too!

This is a sponsored post written by me for DMC. All of the opinions are my own.

SUPPLIES

DMC Embroidery Floss in the following colors:

 

 

 

DMC Faux Leather Cuff in White

DMC Chenille Needle Size #18

DMC Embroidery Scissors

STITCH GUIDE

  • Use all six strands of floss.
  • Instead of creating a knot, leave a 2” tail when starting each color and weave it in as you stitch. Don’t carry over your floss across all three quilt blocks..that will leave floss loops that could get tangled and damage your cuff.
  • Make sure you stitch your “X”s in the same direction to keep a uniform look.
  • At the end of each color on each quilt square, create a loop knot, and then weave it in.

    I actually have some of the cork and some of the mesh in my stash – now I’m kinds of motivated to work with it! One thing I want to do with the cork is to make a stitched up sleeve envelope for my various IDs and card so I can slip them into my phone case for instead of hauling a wallet/purse.

    I’d like to try the cuff bracelet. I’d probably do a quilt pattern on it.

    I am coveting these new products — endless possibilities. I would love to try either one for various projects — I love that you can sew on the cork and how the mesh gives the impression of the embroidered objects floating. Thanks

    I would very much love to make some cuffs. Have seen 3 patterns already which is making me want to take run to HL or Joann’s for the cuffs. A run for me is about 30 minutes to stores from where we live. Can hardly wait to get started on them. Have 2 grand daughters might like them, never know. That’s ok, if they don’t I’ll wear them.
    these are so cute. Will want to try working with the mesh also and the cork, little by little. So many new projects and materials to try. Would be fun to design own patterns for cuffs.
    Happy weekend

    I can’t decide between the mesh and the cork. Probably have to get with the mesh, I think it would go well on a beach tote.

    I am really interested in the cork, but I’d love to try the cuffs with my daughters, I think they make for great kids projects!

    I can’t believe I found you!!! I’m addicted to cross stitch and spend many hours making cute little things for family gifts. I absolutely love doing it! I just clicked back to your rose faux leather cuff post and I absolutely adore it a long with the quilt pattern. These would be fun and I have a couple nieces who would LOVE to have some!

    This looks awesome! I’d like
    to try the cork or the cuff. I
    would cross stitch the cuff
    also.

    The cuffs are so pretty. They would be a fast and easy project too.
    My granddaughter (30 yrs old) would love to do this too. I want
    to try the cork and these cuffs. I want to make a bag with the cork.
    I haven’t been in the fabric
    section of the stores for a few years (I’ve missed a lot of good
    things). I’ll be checking that section out the next time I go
    shopping. thanks for sharing.

    I try to craft with my 5 yr. old niece as much as possible. She loves jewelry and would absolutely flip over making a faux leather cuff!

    I’m most interested in the mesh product. I do like your cuff and the colorful design too! I’d like to make an embroidered wall hanging for my sewing room with a favorite quote or Bible passage. This looks like such great stuff to create with!
