Okay, there is this lady I work with who has been a great friend to me this last year, and I thought I'd make her something as a belated Christmas present in the coming weeks.
I got a small denim tote bag at Michael's, as well as some red gingham fabric, and Fabri-tack.
I got this image
from the Stencilry web site and am going to cut it out of the gingham, then attach the patch to the denim bag with the Fabri-tack. After the glue has dried, I'm going to stitch the border in red floss, and maybe stitch a little red heart where Louisville is on the map.
Any thoughts? Do you think the Fabri-Tack will work okay? Is there anything I need to remember to do (or not do)? This will only be my 3rd embroidered project, and I've never worked with patches. The only stitches I know are the ones in the Stitch-It kit. I want the edges to look finished but cute. Help!
