I bought a men's "Fishing shirt" in pink. There is a flap on the back that is just asking for some embroidery!! So, after looking at many design ideas - I decide on this design. Wish they were better pictures - I still have to trim the stabilizer an
I am having fun stitching out ITH earrings. This design stitched out easy - will be making more in different colors! Thanks for looking!! Hugs, Laura PS: My Sister-in-law came to visit so I gave them to her - she loves them.

Just finished these Buffalo Plaid earrings for our Daughter, Katie. I decided to make a smaller one to put on a cord for Granddaughter, Vivian. I found the Faux Leather at Hobby Lobby and it stitched out so easy! So hard to believe these are made in t
Here are some Doggie Bag Holders I made. These are a different design and a plain design using a "dog" vinyl, (different from the ones I made before). On the center one - the little dog in the lower left looks just like our mini Golden Doodle. I am a
