It's "Country" Subway Art..

Subway Art.. "the personalized kind"..  It seems to be all over the blog-a-sphere.. but I think Jen from Tatertots & Jello kind of put it together in a new style.. and from there is has grown and everyone has added their own takes..  I am going to try "Saying It With Thread"

I am sure the above title is an oxymoron, however the term "artistic license" can be added which then seems to make almost every art concept "OK".   Such is the case of Country SubWay Art.  But here is how it all becomes clear..  The more you view the descriptive words or pictures in "subway art" the more the concept seems likely to be applied to so many other things including HOME DECOR embellishments.. 

Simply the word.. embellishment.. opens the door for so many concepts..  For instance the simple way to add an embroidered tag with a ribbon to a throw pillow..  A pillow always seems to say welcome when placed on a chair or couch.. but add some "subway art embellishment to the pillow, and it is a touch of decorating magic.

The embroidered tag slides on the ribbon and the ribbon securely fastens it to the pillow by tying it off in back..

The pillow shown is 15 x15 inches..  The tag is created in the 5 x 7 hoop  and the PES file
is  Free to download and create your own pillow Country Subway Art..

Also.. I have created an embroidery file that will create a square Tag.. of Country Subway Art.  I think this can be hung from door, cabinet knobs.. or also attached to a pillow.  this art tag is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 in finished size.   The file is a PES Country Square.. ready for you to down load.

the tags add a touch of embellishment almost anywhere..

You can also always find the FREE download files on the Download Page here.  If you download the free files.. please leave a comment below, I would love to hear from you.

These are so much fun.. and I will shortly add a "how to" for making these tags on your Brother embroidery / sewing machine..


We are participating in the following parties..

  3. That is really clever, they look so cute wherever you put them too. Thanks for sharing with my newbie party.

  4. How pretty! I love the country look!

  5. Very cute! It's funny, our design style seems to be mostly contemporary, but but little "country" touches thrown in. Kind of a strange combination :p


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
