Loving this--in first picture I thought it looked like little hands and wondered why--seeing the wrong side of fabric I think. I think it was first picture.
I can see the 'hands' but never thought of that-lol-Enjoy!
wow thank you for sharing this with us.
You're very welcome and also, Welcome to Cute. I hope you join in on all the topics. Don't be shy, we are a friendly bunch of Cuties and looks like with 2 flowers here, I'll give you your third (see the little flower number change?). We call it watering the flowers.
We have all our embroidery items we completed posted in Projects. But here in Community, there are more topics you click on to post. I'm sure you will find your way around and if you can't , just ask. Someone always has an answer. I hope you enjoy being a Cutie!-Toogie
Thanks for the tutorial I must make one for my sister who is in a nursing home. Hugs
Please show us when you get it done Shirley. We would love to see your work.
Thank you Toogie for this tutorial. I will try this too. I saved this as pdf with the free program "print friendly", which is a big help on all websites, because you can print ore transform in pdf only the things you are intersted for without any menu or advertises.
I print to pdf file and I don't get the ads either. If you do try one, I'd love to see. I want to try your shirt makeover, would be nice to wear on my trips. However I don't have many tee-knit fabrics on hand.
I was thinking, tell me if this is a good idea. If a person had a stained front shirt, couldn't you use the center sleeve length, to make the inset down the center front, on the makeover shirt? And if the stain was high enough, I wonder if the cowl neck scarf could be made from the lower front and back of stained shirt?
Yes, you think the same way as I do. I used for the insert a part from another shirt (the back) and the front with embroidey on it for another project as insert for a v-neck, which was to big. Only the stripes are new fabric. The leftovers from the shirt I use for embellishment.
You know the saying? "Great minds think alike"-lol
Can you give me the site for free progam "print friendly" Thank You.
Thanks elemausi, I use this all the time-have it pinned to my page header-but never thought to use it on a page like this. And dday, it's printfriendlyDOTcom
Thank you jofrog
You're very welcome. I would be so happy for you to try one..or more and share your photo with us.
Thanks, Toogie...I'm with Chris...you should be a teacher!
I am hoping maybe I already am, here on Cute and at home, trying to help those who don't already know. We are all teachers or students and at some point, I can fit in either category.
Thank you so much for the easy to follow directions and your generosity in sharing them! Wonderful instructions. These will make great gifts.
Well Becky it sounds like you are really interested. I along with others, would love to see your versions you make. Please share with all of us, your completed 'safe'. This is when I know my post really helped someone.
You are amazing!! Thankyou Janette
You're welcome Janette. They are so quick to do, once you make the first one, you feel more confident and then you may not stop.-lol It only takes 1/3 yd of fabric for the main piece and then a 5 inch x( I'd say) 20 inch to be safe when you turn up, for the pocket. I used an old white, heavy cotton sheet, for my pockets. So when do you think you'll make yours?
YOU SHOULD BE A TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great job on them Toogie, I love all of the instructions and your 'safe' hanger. Love Chris
You mean that I made sense?-lol-I sometimes think, what if my thoughts are not in order. Thanks for liking my 'safes'.
Thank you Chris and Kay. I know you both sew well so we must help those just learning, or like me sometimes, those who are forgetful.
