Gallery walls - a great way to display your finished embroidery

A lot of people ask me what they can do with their finished embroidery. If they've got mad crafting skills, I generally tell them they can turn it into a zippered pouch, the front of a tote bag, or the back of a hip jacket. If they're sentimental, they could have it framed. If they're a whiz with the sewing machine, it could be the start of a quilt or a pillowcase.

But if they're none of those things (like me), then I tell them to make a gallery wall.

May's Instagram winner

The winner of the May Instagram contest is Luann! She sent in this great picture of her finished Night Owls kit. Didn't they turn out great? She's the first winner of my monthly Instagram contest and was chosen at random out of all of the amazing people who tagged me in images this month. She'll be getting a pre-printed fabric pattern of her choice.

A little jealous? There's always next month. Every month I'll be picking a winner from those who tag me (@studiomme) on Instagram. You're already bragging about your mad stitching skills to your friends on social media so just brag to me as well and you'll be entered into the contest.

Let's See Your Best Studio MME Kit Photos

Sometimes I get a bit tired sharing all of MY pictures on Instagram so I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of yours. Maybe it's a picture of you stitching with your cat, or holding up the finished piece, or bragging about how pretty the back of your embroidery is. (Yeah, I'm talking about you, Shannon.) Whatever your photo is, so long as it has one of my kits in it, I'd love to see it because I'm having a monthly Instagram contest!
