 Grin I'm still impressed!! There's a digitizing class being run regularly close to where I work, and I've been thinking of signing up to learn the basics. I've done all the exercises in the manual, but so far don't like the results as well as the finished embroideries I can buy online.  I'm addicted to http://www.urbanthreads.com/   Smiley

Wow! I'm impressed Smiley I've got the software too, but I haven't made anything really advanced yet Smiley Great job!

*LoL* You're right about the snow! The aprons were photographed on completion in a period spanning no more than a couple of weeks, but we've been having funny weather - a few days of sunshine and thaw and then a week of incessant snow before the sun peeks out again... It's mostly visible on the trees - there's still a lot of snow on the ground Smiley

It seems all my girlfriends' birthdays are either in February and March, so I've been on a roll sewing aprons for a bunch of them. All fabric was bought on eBay and I had a lot of fun finding the perfect print to reflect the receivers likes and color preferences  Smiley

Pattern is Butterick B4945.

Chocolate apron:


Blue and brown apron:


Birdie apron:


Now I think I'll need to make one for myself as well, but first I've got to find that perfect fabric....  Wink

Oooh! Very pretty Smiley Smiley What a clever idea to use a removable iron-on underlay! I live in Norway, and haven't found freezer paper in stores here either. I usually use contact paper - the vinyl-ish thingie with glue on the back - it works well too, but can be a hassle if you have small details in your stencils.

Well done! I love the toes on the frog too Smiley

Awesome! I love those flames! Did you digitize them yourself, or did you buy the pattern? I have patterns for 'flame'-coloured flames (red, yellow, orange) but these are WAAAY cooler!  Grin

He's so adorably grumpy! Having two cats myself I know that look all to well...  Cheesy

I haven't dared trying to dress them up however - my little girl My would kill me for sure! Huge, fuzzy Largo would probably put up with it, but never be my buddy again  Smiley

Well done!
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What are your bad sewing habits? on: February 25, 2009 03:13:46 AM
-Sewing over pins (I never ever baste unless it's an absolute necessity..)
-Constantly buying more fabric that more often than not end up in storage for ages and ages before I get around to make something from it.
-Dropping snips of thread and fabric right down on the floor even tho' my waste bucket is only half a foot away
-Never drawing in the seam allowance when I draft patterns (I just cut them on visual guesstimate when I cut the fabric)
-Leaving pieces of thread/fabric all over the house

My BF could probably give you an even longer list... *lol*
