Theses are the last towels of the stack I've made to use in my kitchen instead of paper towels. The designs are from the BFC 10th anniversary freebies, just all in one color. I made a lot of towels so I could use a frest one each day and not run out. Th
I made a some sets of napkins for an auction to raise funds for a hospital. This is a new design for me that I got at Embroidery Library recently. It is large, but so is the napkin! I might just make a set for myself, or to keep handy as a house gift.
I've been making coasters and have a problem with pokies sticking out of the outside edges that have been satin stitched. I tried using a washaway stabilizer, but that didn't help. Does anyone have a leave in stabilizer that tears away completely?
This is my first effort to make a coaster. I I used a felt type stabilizer, the fabric I stitched on was felt, and I use a white vynal table cloth fabric on the back. I put the vynal so that the soft backing side was on the outside. I had to use a black p
Hand towels for the kitchen I decided to make some hand towels to use instead of always grabbing a paper towel to dry my hands. The fabric is Moda toweling that comes hemmed on both sides, so you just have to cut/hem the length you want. Obviously, I h
When I start a design, I like to use a full bobbin so that I don't have to stop to replace it in the middle of stitching. I just hate having to replace a bobbin. This leaves me with bobbins that are a third or less full, not enough to do a new design, bu
Well, I did my second show that I took my aprons to sell. The same thing happened that happened the first time. People snatched up the little one yard aprons and I only sold two embroider ones. Finally, I started asking people why they thought this was so
Little pockets I make to hold lipstick, tea bags, handiwipes, pill boxes, or other small things. I sell them craft shows. Designs are from a variety of sources but not bigger than 4x4. A good way to use your test designs!
I had missed the "G" in the owl alphabet and was getting around to purchasing it and I thought I'd pick up a few other designs while I was at it, but I can't locate the owl alphabet. Am I going blind in my old age? Or missing a few marbles? I suppose
This is what happens when your computer gives you the wild colors which it sometimes does! While I did not properly stabilize the designs, I like the cartoonish look they aquired from my mistake. Designs were freebies from Vicky (basketkase that she post
I want to make some potholders, but I'm concerned about the threads melting. I know that my iron will melt polyester (don't ask how I know that). Is there a problem with using polyester threads on potholders? Or do you just not use the side with the des
Bad news, no one bought my Kiss The Cook aprons! Good news, they did buy some of the other aprons. Best news is that a gal who owns a shop selling olive oils (which are healthy for you) asked if she could sell my aprons in her shop! I said yes, and I want
I will be donating my profits to the hospital where this event that I will be selling the aprons at takes place. I'm not going to post all the aprons, but thought you'd like to see this one. The heart is an Urban Threads design.
