1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you do with your finished projects? on: May 14, 2012 03:19:34 PM
I love all of these ideas! And I definitely agree with giving projects away as gifts. Very few of my friends craft, so they're usually super excited to receive a handmade gift.
I'm thinking of making a quilt for one of the gazillion babies my friends are suddenly having. I'm a beginner quilter, so it would just be basic square blocks. Several of the squares could be embroidered, which would use up several projects at once. Smiley I have a bunch of Sublime Stitching patterns that I look at often, but never use. The designs are cute enough to be used on baby items. (Except for the pinups. I must find a different use for those.)
I'm also planning a tote bag with a James Dean cross stitch on one side. A coworker is graduating high school, and she LOVES James Dean. I just bought a cross stitch design program (PC Stitch), and I think I'm about to become obsessed with cross stitching.)

I've used the Target towels, too. I particularly like the unbleached towels, though they don't always have them in stock.
I love the idea of buying the fabric by the yard! My city only has a Joann & a Hobby Lobby.... maybe course muslin would work as a tea towel.
