So, I've been sewing for a while now and really enjoy it. I'm not super great, and I tend to stick to simple things, like blankets, pillowcase dresses, hemming things, and replacing buttons. I have a lot of fun doing it, and I always look for new ideas of things to try.
Well - I like to have names stitched into things, especially new baby gifts and it gets pricey to take your item down to an embroider and have a name put on it.......sooooo........I splurged and bought my own embroidery machine!! It came via UPS on Friday afternoon and I had SO much fun playing with it ALL weekend! I have downloaded new fonts and designs online and can't wait to try them all out. Maybe I'll start a little embroidery business.... ;) Here is a bit of what I did this weekend.
My practice scrap fabric
still learning to "applique" - I didn't cut enough zebra fabric off....
Blanket I made and personalized!!
I got my colors screwed up, so a blue monkey it is LOL
