    Blanks for embroidery

    Silly question but I am new to embroidery and was wondering if there is a good place to get blanks such as baby bibs?

    No such thing as a silly question when you want to learn and especially when you are new to a great adventure. I know there are lots of them out there but right now I can't remember right off hand. Have you tried googling embroidery blanks? I got a great price on plane terry bibs at a dept store last yr to use for embroidery. I'm hoping to do up some kitchen towels for Christmas. Right now I'm making matching checkbook covers, eyeglass covers and bookmards w/inserted lace and a couple are also getting organizer covers and a Nook cover. Have fun with your embroidery machine; it's addictive.

    Look in AC Moore, Joann's or Hancock. Also you can probably find them online for a good price.

    I get a lot of mine from allaboutblanks.com. They have regular linens, but have a kid/baby section and the quality is nice. Good luck with your machine,, you'll have lots of fun, I love mine.

    With just alittle time, you can sew them yourself. You'll save money and have the opportunity to choose your own colors and patterns.

    One of the best places I have found for bib and burp cloth blanks
    is at EMBROIDER THIS.

    But I also get my bib blanks from where my SIL works as she can
    get them for me at her cost (employee discount). If your able to
    buy wholesale than Imprints Wholesale might be an option for you.
    PLUS Imprints has 14 colors (white terry bib with color binding) to
    choose from.

    Have you tried making them ITH? If you have a lge hoop (6x10), there is a design that completely makes a drool bib--for free download--in DesignsbyCuties at the CuteEmbroidery.com site. You might have to scroll thru the designs (and prob select others as well!) until you find the bib...you'll have to register with the site first but there are many many free designs. Have fun!

    Are you aware that you can actually make the whole bib in the hoop. Go to Stitch Delight. They have daily $1.00 sets. I love their designs but then most of mine are for kids. They have laces and lots of other goodies. They have quite a few bibs, just check the hoop size. Happy embroidery.

    I went to Kmart and bought a few packages of linen type hand towels. Some had the days of the week already embroidered on them so I added pictures above them. The other set was solid white and I LOVED doing embroidery on them. They were very reasonably priced sold in packages of 6 or so.
