MY second question is re iron on patterns. I Have a very personal pattern I want to embroider for a friend (the design on her wedding invites) but don't feel I'm good enough yet to embroider it straigh onto fabric would like a picture ouIe fabric to stitch over. IS it possible to buy iron on paper that will allow me to print my own pattern to then iron onto the fabric (can't draw to save my life!) ANd if so what is it called and where can I get it? AM in the uk so American shops not suitable needs to be done by end of july so don't really have time for American shipping
So I've been teaching myself to embroider and have nearly finished my first one. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out and would like to share it on here when it's finished. However it's done from a kit including preprinted fabric! I'd like to know if this is seen as cheating and whether it will be looked down on if I post it on here? IT also has step by step instructions including what stitch and what colour to use where so is not exactly my own creativity!
Just to let you know I'm still here and gathering package 2 together. A quick question though is It ok to pick 2 of The non crafted options or do I have to include something crafted? The 2 options I've picked will allow me to spoil my partner quite a lot but if I need ue craft something obviously I'll need to rethink! Thanks Sarah x
Thanks for posting pics of my wonderful scrabble cushions was concentrating too much on getting yours finished since I received and then today I had hospital appt and then sent afternoon asleep!!! We both absolutely love them!!! they're so fat and comfortable :-)
Am so glad you liked everything hola-kitty! There are things I wish I''d done differently (longer flap on the bag for one) but as you know I was out of it at the time - so am quite pleased with what I DID manage to produce!!!!
Also - sorry the coconut ice is so red (instead of pink) I tried to do a couple of drops of die - but put in rather too much!!!!!
Been pretty poorly for a couple of weeks (half of that time spent in hospital the other half in bed) However now i've sent package one of the make a friend swap i've made a good start on this one - i might need a few extra days also - but am hoping not.
Will only be sending the one item - but from the time it's taking me to complete it it''ll be a large! Been working on it since about 5:30 this afternoon and not even got an 8th of it done! I am a slow crafter - but it's also rather fiddly!
Anyway I hope my partner will like it when it's done!
SOrry I've not been on this thread recently I was in hospital last weekend then this week been too poorly to get out of bed! BEEn making me feel really low too and I just haven't had motivation to be on here reading things etc. I hope I haven't missed any check ins etc maybe someone could pm me if I have? I did do the e mail check in right at the beginning I have been communicating a bit with my p. I'm still really not well so may continue to be quiet for some time. I'm on exceedingly high levels of pain killers and am really not with it half the Time either!
In other news in the few sentient moments I've had I've been forcing myself to WOrk on this swap and had some of it done before I got so ill. I still need to make some ......./.... .... the ....... FOr a ... ...... /.... Two .... And a .... For a ...
My ..../..... And ........ Are done and the rest has been purchased and already in my possession
The bit:p I have left to do are all fairly quick. I was stressing out earlier thinking I needed just one extra day as won't be ready to send tomo but then partner reminded me it was actually Wednesday so I found that extra day!!! therefore I should be sending on Friday assuming no more catastrophes between now and then!
