Hello Cuties! Here is a nice 2 ounce ITH Hand Sanitizer Holder that dragonflyer digitized. She did it without the bottle too!!! I measured the 2 oz ones I had bought at The Dollar Tree (She and Laura's were 1 oz, they bought at their Dollar Tree stores). Sent her the measurements via email, since we're across country from each other and she hit the nail on the head, the very first try! Talk about good!

Anyway, here are my stitchouts, as she did a little tweaking, just to perfect her design.
The flower designs are from different designers, on Oregon Patchworks. The red is from Floral Splendor but I don't have designer's name.
The peach colored one comes up blue, in my pes program so I changed the color, for this brown vinyl. The design says Eepffree1 if that helps you.
The hands were a filled design and the perfect example of what NOT to use on vinyl. It was too many stitches, too dense.
The blue design was one I got from DBC when it was still up, by Butterhex. Thank you Butterhex as it is a good design just again, Not a good design for vinyl, as the wavy stitches get buried in the vinyl.
In my humble opinion, I think a wide satin stitch does better as in the case of the peach colored.

*TIP-I found if I taped just enough cut-a-way, under my body of holder before adding lining, the designs I added stitched better, not 'waving' the vinyl.
1-First stitchout hanging on bag, no other design added.
2-Top 2 flowers were freebies from Oregonpatchworks
The peach holder is the final perfected holder.
Thank you again Kim for your patience with me, turning out such a nice holder.......I need to watch a sale for this watch my $Tree get the 1 oz size bottles!!!

I love your work, always beautiful. Where can I buy that design please? is it hard to embroider in vinyl? I am afraid it will hurt the machine. **********

Stitching on vinyl hasn’t hurt mine and I’ve stitched a good bit. I have answered you in a pm. Thank you Maria and always glad to hear from you.

Dragonflyer did all the work, I just played! Thanks!

I love making some of these also but my machine does not like anything taped at the bottom, like when you have to tape a piece of vinyl bottom side. It rolls up on me and then the whole thing doesn't want to move. Tried different tapes and none seem to want to work--maybe it is whatever is on my cutaway stabilizer coating it. I do not know--maybe someone else has this same problem? I am next going to try a chapstick or balm holder for my granddaughter. Kim always does such a great job digitizing. Toogie I looked at each picture--I see nothing wrong with any--they look fantastic.

Hi Patti...I generally use tear away for these types of projects...what type of tape are you using? Have you tried using a temporary spray like 505 instead of tape? I have used a furniture spray like Pledge on a cloth and wiped the bed of my machine to help with things not "sticking" as well.

toogie by toogie 20 Jan 2019

Yes, they look ok but I worried about the denseness causing the vinyl to come apart around the design of the hands. Just perforates too much.
I hope Kim helped with your problem.

peafarm by peafarm 21 Jan 2019

I have some KK2000 and will try that next, hope that is as good as 505. A friend suggested PAM also. Will do both. I've tried 2 tackiness of Painter's Blue tape, scotch brand tape, Washi tape and regular Masking Tape. All curled up so bad. Thanks Kim.- I will add Pledge to my list to try also.

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 21 Jan 2019

Patti, you could also slip a piece of light weight tear away stabilizer under the hoop after you have taped the vinyl to the back...that way the tape and vinyl would not shift when the hoop moved and after all was done, you could easily tear away the stabilizer from the back...this should solve your problem.

do you sell this design? I will love to buy it...thanks

by sonjapotgieter 20 Jan 2019

So Beautiful!!!Where can we buy these designs Please..Love them!!!

Read info in the top post.
Thanks for looking!

Sonja , copy and paste
The floral Splendor design (the red flower) is still free. I hope this is ok to post since it's not a direct link.....

Thank you so much for info!

After finding this one fairly easy I searched for the Eepffree one but couldn't find it. However, while looking in Enigma Embroidery I found a lot of other free designs. Have a look in sets and most have at least one and some have 2 freebies.

I like the two hands I made one with one hand I made my with a kokopelli on it. I wish we had a Dollar Tree I have to go the Tulsa. You did a good job!

I have to go 15-20 miles east, south, or west or 40 miles north for a Dollar Tree. I am in the country, so when I go I stock up. Thanks for looking!

by sebsews 20 Jan 2019

I love these, I have 1oz and 2oz....Maybe I will join you on a trip so I can get one of these holders! Suzanna

'Come on down' as Bob Barker used to say! I only have the 2 oz $Tree and the Bath & Body ones are 1 oz. I just looked but bottles are different and lids, too.

by 02kar Moderator 19 Jan 2019

They are perfect now! Kudos to you and to Kim. I couldn't digitize a straight line if my life depended on it so I'm so very grateful for all of our digitizers.

toogie by toogie 19 Jan 2019

I'll second that! Wish I could DRAW a straight line.

02kar by 02kar 19 Jan 2019

I can't help but laugh because I can't draw a straight line either.

toogie by toogie 19 Jan 2019

Maybe it has to do with our equilibrium or vertigo?.....

by pennyhal2 19 Jan 2019

Everyone will love thses. I know several of my friends would love if I made them one! Haven't stitched on vynal yet so it would be a learning experience.

If your design is meant for vinyl, no problem, give it a try.

by stork 19 Jan 2019

These turned out great! I have never tried my hand at these....too afraid I guess. Might need to find a file to make these. Great job for both you and Kim.

I like the hands too, just wish the stitches weren't so dense. Thanks for looking!

Toogie, Very nice, glad you found something to make for your trips. These are great!

Now how did you know!-lol I wonder about giving them to a man? Plain of course, but I know they could hook it on belt loops, as my grand daughter hooked hers Kim did, to fit the Bath and Body bottle.

by crafter2243 Moderator 19 Jan 2019

Great job you two.Thank you Kim for so often helping Cuties out with your digitizing skills. Toogie how many of those do you have to make? They are perfect for your bus trips. Very practical.

toogie by toogie 19 Jan 2019

Yes very practical, everybody could use these. She has two trips coming up, so if I can get the hardware on sale, 80-90..... When I've been getting the hooks, they are 2 in a pack for $1.00 regularly 2 in pk for $1.99, but when I go and they are half off, I buy what they have, which is usually just 5 or 6 packs. You are right about Kim. She does so much, always willing to help, I sometimes feel ashamed to ask when I want something in particular. Digitizing will always remain 'above me' as I don't understand technology.
If you find a not too dense freebie suitable for these, point me in that direction. I have a feeling at that many to make I will soon tire of the pretty peach one, even changing colors!!! Luckily, I told Kim one of our bus drivers gave me about a yard and half of this brown vinyl. She embroiders too, remember I told yall. She brings her machine sometimes with her, when she takes a group to a ballgame. The bus has outlets she plugs to and stitches away, on the bus while passengers are in the stadium!!! How great is that!

by pennifold 19 Jan 2019

Well done the two of you. This way you don't have to turn them inside out too! I love the little pair of hands, just the right clue for what to do with them. Love Chris

toogie by toogie 19 Jan 2019

Yes, you are correct on all accounts Chris. I told Kim the hands I want to make a couple, for our new great-grand babies' moms, to hang on their diaper bags. Would be neat to include in a baby gift. Again tho, I wish the design were less dense. I am afraid it will perforate the vinyl too much and just come apart. Thanks goes to Kim and her brilliant mind.

by shirley124 19 Jan 2019

Well done to you both. Hugs
