Yesterday I monogrammed the white sweatshirt for my friend Angie. I had to hoop it three times to use the big letters. I used the Chevron Font from Hang to Dry. I also made my first pocket tees yesterday. The coral colored t-shirt is for me. I used a Thirty One fabric swatch from my kit. It has cute flip flops on it. The second pocket tee is also for Angie. It is a surprise. She didn’t know I was making it for her. She loves lime green. The pocket is a gray denim fabric that was also from the Thirty One fabric swatches. The pot holder hand towel set is for a customer. She requested two sets. The other set has a Y on them with the same fabric. I made the pot holder. There is 5 layers. Fabric, Insul Bright, fusible fleece, Insul Bright, and then fabric. They are pretty thick. I used the La De Da applique frame from Planet Applique on the hand towel. The font on the pot hold and hand towel is the Elizabeth Font from Applique Corner.
Just a sample of a few things that I have been working on this week. I had a few Etsy orders for some Christmas hand towels.
I embroidered names on the stockings for a lady using the A Pure Heart Font from Applique Corner. I also attempted my first in the hoop coaster. I bought the ITH design from Five Star Fonts Embroidery. The Monogram Coaster turned out pretty good and wasn’t all that scary to make. (Big Smiles). I get nervous trying new patterns. I don’t know why. It took me a few months just to get my embroidery machine out of the box. I was so nervous that I was going to screw something up. And I know those babies aren’t cheap. My next new project is an ITH eye glasses case that is an owl. I need to get a certain stabilizer first. It should be interesting. Wish me luck!
