My first 2017 project completed!



Hello Cuties, remember my Maine bag I embroidered, with the lighthouse and lobster? Well, the lady that won it on the trip, then asked me to embroider her a team bag, when we got home and it didn't have to be until after Christmas. So I did this today. I emailed her some photos already, so I hope this is what she wanted. She left it up to me, but I think she will be pleased, don't you? I fussy cut the applique fabric, so I could get the cat/tiger in and used a fake leather, for the football. It was hard for me to trim ITH, with the bag turned almost wrong side out or curled up all around, so my edges are not as good as I would have liked......

Great job Toogie. I have had to make things for LSU also since my son n law has an aunt and cousins that live in La. When Ala. plays LSU in La my grand daughter and her family usually stay there at their home. I get to make gifts for them to take LOL I'll have to copy you on this cause I bet they would like this very much/Lillian

I'm sure they would. People always like anything that is their team related. I hope the lady I've made it for likes it as much in person as she did on the phone text. I guess I will find out Sunday afternoon!

I dl it in 2013, but don't have where it is from. There is one at appliqueforkids.com on sale for $2. right now that looks like it. I didn't stitch the bar across this one, as it would have fallen across my tiger head.

Welcome to Cute, ladycajun! No, I purchased the bag and did use LSU fabric on it. I fussy cut it, as they say, to get it where I wanted the tiger and name to show.
How long have you been embroidering? I love most of the crafts, or at least the ones I can do-lol-
Watch your flowers grow as I am giving you your first. If you click on the flowers by someone's avatar/photo it adds to their flowers, we call it watering them. You do that as a way of saying you read the post, you like it, or just want to be nice and spread some flowers. You'll learn more as you go along. And we call ourselves Cuties! Stick around and show us something you embroidered-Toogie

Welcome, ladycajin. When you click on a cuties flower on the right side of the post, the green flower will turn orange. Glad you found us. Kay

Wow.... You've done an awesome job of this. The fussy-cutting was worth it as the LSU is perfectly placed. Love the leather look football too. Your work is so inspiring. --Sharon

What a surprise to wake up to! Nice to see you on here, my child. Now lets see you post some of your work. I know you can make ITH zip bags....I didn't get to give you your first flower :( but here is your second :)

sjbrower by sjbrower 06 Jan 2017

And a third for you. Welcome! --Sharon

I'm learning how to work this. What's the flower for? I can actually say, you know more about this than me, I'm usually the one that tells you how to or where to go, lol.

toogie by toogie 06 Jan 2017

You're so funny-When you read a post, you click on flowers by the names of all the Cuties, (that who we are called) that commented and the original post. Just a way of making someones flowers grow, see your flower number changes, when someone clicks it. Sharon/sjbrower clicked and now someone else, because you now have 4. Also, it helps you know what you already read or commented on, because when you click it is colored.

lbrow by lbrow 06 Jan 2017

Nae wanted to welcome to the wonderful world of Cute that your marvelous mom discovered some years back. We are so glad to have you and I know how proud your mom is to see you here. . Welcome to our little corner of the worldd/Lillian

She looked at the photos I sent and called me planning to pick it up Sunday afternoon. Seems they will be coming through this way, on their way, to a grand child's birthday. So I guess my timing was good.

Toggie, a super design you have done for this lady. I am sure she shall be thrilled with the result. I can see there will be more orders when she uses it with pride and shows all her friends. I hope you did not sell yourself short, as I know how much lovingly hard work you put into these bags. Sandra.

I didn't make this bag, I just embroidered it. I bought a bunch of these on clearance a few years ago. Thanks for your nice words.
