....and I love this!
And now on to other just-as-delightful things! We've just purchased another house down the street and will soon begin our work to flip and resell it - check out the "Flipping the Blue House" page for more details and pictures!
So that means I have set aside this year all the craft shows I have prepared for - no biggie - I'm still selling my items and I'm happy for the opportunity that has come our way. I'm still fervently working on learning how to sew: I'll be making super-adorable and swanky coin purses (think tweed! vintage patterns! buttons, jewels and pleats!) and still need to start my sweet pillowcases w/a delicate crochet trim. I'm also crocheting classic stuffed animals, refurbishing a set of chairs I've inherited,---aaaaand, just kidding. That's it. I think.
(See below.) I made these iron-on transfers for my products, to label the coin purses and pillowcases. I designed it in Microsoft Word, mirrored it, then printed it on transfer paper, then followed the given directions from the transfer paper packet and ironed it on my choice of twill tape. I will then cut them and sew them into the seams. yay!
>>An alternative is to iron it directly onto the fabric of your project- moms like to do that to label their kids clothes and school backpacks so that if lost they can be returned to its owner - there are many creative possibilities<<
