So if  I was to do this:how do you wash the garmets?
Just the gentle cycle and hang dry?

I would guess so. Honestly, I've run stuff I've embroidered through a normal laundry run and it's come out okay, but better safe than sorry I suppose.

HAHAHA Love 'em!

Can't you just picture Munch making some joke about how that's the closest he's been to girl parts since his third divorce...

First: The onesies are ridiculously awesome!

Second: What type of pen do you use to draw on the press 'n seal? Does the press 'n seal allow the ink to dry before embroidering?

Thanks! I generally use just a sharpie or something. It usually dries pretty quick.

These are so great! Definitely one of my favorite projects on Craftster yet.

If you're still looking for the perfect Valentines, may I recommend Brandon Bird's Law & Order: SVU set? http://www.brandonbird.com/svutines.html He has another separate page of L&O inspired art, too.

Oh, I do so love those. I Huang to be with you! CLASSIC.

Also I just exploded a little bit over your username. SHEEEEEEEE'S GOT! all the money! money couldn't buy!
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Shoes on a cat? THAT'S CRAZY TALK on: February 10, 2009 08:56:25 AM
So my very dear friend Katie has a birthday coming up on Sunday, so I thought I'd make a present for her! She has a kitteh named Finn who really likes to lie on shoes and often times will even sit with his paws in your shoes. It is quite amusing, I assure you. So I took this picture:



And made this!



and a close-up (sorry it is blurry! and has hoop marks... and cat fur...):



AND just for kicks, the token "Look, my cat is being helpful!" picture that we all know so well... I guess he just wanted to give Finn a kees.

That baby is gonna grow up and be all "what's SVU?", or end up watching old skool dvds by the time they are old enough. XD

Hahaha, and probably be like, "OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH MY MOTHER?"

Lovely stitches, and thanks for the tip with the plastic wrap.  I love that stuff, and never thought to use it this way!  Awesome!

I'm pretty convinced that if Press N Seal wrap was around when MacGuyver was doing his thing, he would have been even more unstoppable.

So does the press n seal wrap work as a stabilizer on the side that it is placed?

Kind of. It's more like it enhances the overall stabilization, I guess? I would say it does help a little bit though. I wouldn't use it without something else though.

Firstly, thank you everyone for the nice words! I am glad to see so much SVU love. I sometimes wonder what it says about me that I am so enamored with a show about creeps and perverts, but eh! Secondly:

wow!  those look really good.  thanks for the plastic wrap tip, i'm very new to embroidering but have been looking around for an easyish way to make cool designs without a pattern.  i'll definitely try this!  you just pull it off when you're done right?

Yes! The stitching makes it kind of perforated and it just peels right off. Not all in one piece, mind you, but it still comes off easily. I usually use tweezers to help get some of the smaller pieces. And it's really nice because it leaves no residue and you don't have to worry about washing ink or whatever out of the fabric.

oh lol. I love them.
question about the press n' seal - when you rip it off, do you find it slides out from beneath the stitches easily? I'd be afraid to use it on anything requiring a satin stitch because I worry about it's visibilty.

I've found it comes out pretty easily... sometimes little pieces will get stuck and you have to use a pair of tweezers or something to pull it out. However, I guess I should have mentioned that I pretty much only embroider with backstitch because I am a very half-assed stitcher, so I am not sure if it would work out well with all kinds of stitches.
