Wow, Christmas is over! It seems to come and go so fast!? We haven’t “put away” a single decoration yet and are enjoying some time off. Here are a few things I worked on over the past week for Mallory and for a friend’s daughter. Below is an orange cord skort I got from someone ($10 hand-me-down) and I got the hot pink tee from good ole Wally World to match ~ Garanimals. The skort has hot pink ric rac trim. This is our Bird 3 design. I just love birds! I also love hot pink and ORANGE!!
Below was a hoodie dress I got Mallory for Christmas from Old Navy. It is like a sweatshirt material and sooooo soft! I can’t find them online, but they come in several color combos and of course I bought it on sale with a coupon. Again, hot pink and orange and I used MC Center (Monogram Wiz Plus) for the font. It’s the sister font to Master Circle and might be my new favorite! This is nothing fancy, but I just love picking up a dress for 10 bucks and adding a monogram!
On this J. Khaki shirt, I did Embroidery-Boutique’s Raggy Flower design, which is a favorite! On the raggy designs I use a layer of white flannel underneath my fabric. You can also use colored flannel or a couple of extra layers of fabric underneath – white or gingham that coordinates. This fabric is an all time favorite – it’s from Hobby Lobby. Check out Helpful Posts for more info on Raggy designs.
Are you asleep yet? Not much exciting to report! We just listed 4 designs at Applique Cafe. We are having a sale on all designs through Wednesday, January 2nd. Lots of new Valentine designs and we’re working on more new designs for SPRING and EASTER.
Have a great weekend and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’ll see if I can come up with something more exciting to post next time. I was thinking of posting about red & pink thread colors for Valentines Day??
