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.
Brandy brought Joshua home this morning and mentioned that she wanted me to show her how to make some pot holders when I had time. I told her to look through my stash and see if there was anything she liked. A few hours later, Voila! 8 roundish pot holders.
I showed her how to trace the trivet onto the material and batting. Then cut them out and how to layer them. Then she braved the sewing machine. She did a great job for someone who doesn’t own a machine or sew. (The color of the fabric is a little washed out from the sun. I thought it would be fun to take them outside on top of the mound of leaves I raked the other day.) The fabrics are fall colors. The flowers are highlighted with gold but you can’t see it in this picture.
