Catch Up Post

Sew.... I'm a little behind on posting, but I have been able to squeeze in a little crafting over the past few weekends, or for some projects they where started months ago. Like Emily's new overalls, she asked Santa for a new pair of overalls with hearts on them because her other ones where too small. As awful as it sounds I wasn't able to produce in time for Christmas, but here they are now, and she seems fine with it and is happy with the hearts. You can't tell very well in this photo but on the leg the pink and white polka dot is a big heart shape.
This is the backside of the overalls. Mom was genius to suggest this idea, and cousin Holly helped by doing the serged edges for me making this ruffle super easy.
This is a kid's t-shirt embroidered using the crayon technique. The pattern is from the Stampin Up digital scrapbooking cd. My friend Meg (Emily's Mom & Stampin Up Demonstrator for those of you that don't already know that) showed me how to use the digital cd to enlarge the stamps and viola now I have a multitudes of patterns for embroidery plus digital scrapbooking which I'm still intimidated by. But hey one thing at a time. The possibilities of patterns that could be used for onsie's, burping cloths, etc with these stamps/patterns is mind boggling and exciting! I was quite pleased with this first project.


Big Shot Crazy. Sew Meg and I have been dying to make time to play with the Big Shot and fabric. (Big Shot is a die cut machine offered by Stampin Up, again if you didn't already know.) Sew here are some of the out comes. Last Sunday Meg was determined to make some of the flowers for hair accessories. They require scraps, heat bond, and very little time to complete. Here are a few samples we did.





This is a dish towel that uses the oval die and then layered to resemble a flower??? This one I'm not as thrilled with. However, there are more creations we made with fabric over on Meg's site. www.iteachstamping.com

My goodness you have been busy! I love the pockets on the overalls, SO cute!! Also love the t-shirt and the idea of using stamps as embroidery patterns. I wonder if I could do that with the stamps I already have? I've got a TON I hardly use!

The overalls are adorable! And that shirt is just awesome. I really want to know how to do that! Love the flowers too. And I do like that towel. I think it turned out great.
