That is so awesome in so many ways!  The image is cool, but because it's actually YOU it's even cooler.  The fact that you took a significant event in your life and turned it into a useful and appreciated gift for someone so significant in your life is pretty damn inspiring!  If I'd realized I could "enhance" myself through embroidery, I might have though of embroidering myself a long time ago! Wink

Those are great!!!   Cheesy What a funny gift!  Do you think your MIL and mom will use or display the potholders and towel??

My ex MIL told me that she's not using them, because she's displaying them.  My own mom is more into her accessories matching her kitchen, so I just made her hot pads (no towel).  I don't think they're on display, but she did take them to work to show off.

I'm making more today for a girlfriend for her birthday.

Here they are!  I think I've used each of the fellas on at least one thing now.  Wouldn't want to play favorites, you know.

Cute! Did she enjoy?

I just delivered them to The ManFlesh last night and his mom is out of town, so she hasn't received them.  He seems to think she will, hopefully he's right.

Another fantastic game!  I love all the layers of meaning and details.  Of course, it's lovely to behold, but the added attention to detail of Manhattan characters on one side and Brooklyn characters on the other is genius. I haven't seen the movie and these kinds of games aren't my thing to play, but I'd collect the ones you've been making and showing here if I was in the market for another collection.

YKYACW you text your man from the fabric store "I found that gay cowboy fabric.  Do you still want hot pads for your mom?"  AND he knows what you're talking about.

Hey All!  I'm waiting for something to be ready for it's next step, so today I busted out these which are definitely useful and hopefully beautiful in at least one way.   Wink

3698  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hot Dish! [Shirtless Cowboy Edition]-UPDATED on: February 16, 2008 07:07:14 PM
Wee!  For xmas I made my ex MIL and my mom these http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211202.msg2266008#msg2266008.  I had asked The ManFlesh if he wanted a pair for his mom and he said "If they had fabric with cowboys."  Well, I knew that Alexander Henry had a cowboy beefcake pattern (is that redundant?), but I could never find it at my local stores.  Well, yesterday I found it!  And here they are:

Appliqud onto a double-thick flour sack towel:



Sewn to Insulbrite, that quilted, insulated, silver-on-one side stuff:



I included with all of them a paper wrap that said in a kitschy font, printed in ink to coordinate with the specific fabric.  I threw together an example because I love the font.  The real ones said, "...who's handy in the kitchen."  Not "... that's handy in the kitchen."  I'm not objectifying them that much.



Thanks for looking!

That's super cute!  I LOVE the contrasting trim and the fabric.  I could use something like that for myself, only bigger and with some darts, maybe.

Teals are my kryptonite.  I am drawn to them like hyenas to a bucket of baboon livers!  Sometimes friends have to say, "Put that down.  You just like it because it's teal, but it's ugly."  I think of teal as a slightly greener turquoise.  And I also think there are many teals (like there are many yellows, blues, etc.)
