Maybe you could make a mini billboard to top the cake???

Cute idea...I love this idea and the idea of having chips as the favor!!

I think the mini billboard idea would be adorable, and you could make it out of a sugar cookie, ice the top and paint the two characters on with food coloring if you are, or someone you know is, good at painting.  Many places that do custom cakes also do other things, such as cookies, and I'm sure it wouldn't be that expensive to get them to customize it with those characters.

This is a brilliant idea!  Then you can save the cookie for your first anniversary instead of or in addition to the top part of cake!  If you use shortbread it will probably hold up pretty well in the freezer, too.   Wink

A-dorable!  iron-on transfers make me nervous too...hence why i've never done them.   Roll Eyes  these seem to have turned out great, though.  but i can't tell, are they already ironed-on, or waiting to be ironed-on?  *dork*

My fear comes from trying it like 10 years ago and it not working.  Then I bought the non-generic and ever since then they've all worked out fine as long as I follow directions - so since then, I've no one to blame but myself!  Anyway, it's worth a try!  These are already ironed on.  When you try it you'll see that the transfer material has an opaque backing paper - at least mine does.

OMG! I was thinking of you earlier today and your "Dick and Jane" boxers!! I need that fabric! LOL

I hope you find it, because we must turn as much yardage of it into underpants as we can!

That's spectacular! Weasels.... really? LOL Men are weird.

Although this did give me an excellent idea about a Bday prezzie for the Hubster! Grin

I know!  Weasels?  Anyway, thanks!  Girl, I can definitely see me making some weasel boxer shorts in the future! Cheesy

Thanks everyone!

QuiltersBlock: Exactly!  Easy, but so cozy and custom.

ruby_soho: Yeah, they aren't gettin these until xmas!  I'm starting EARLY this year.  It's the 1" maker.  I'd like to also get the 2", but I've only seen it online so far.  I'm not so good at neatly sewing the double folded stuff, so I thought maybe with a 2" maker I could make some wide enough for me to work with.

camilaustral: I really want to explore those fun stitches on my machine more.

HSG: Thanks!  She hates orange, but is stuck with orange counters, so I sneaked some in to both projects.

Thanks! I just saw her (didn't get to see her unwrap her presents) and she did like it.  Whew!

hngoodlett- That builds my confidence!

pandamae- It seems there are lots of members of the weasel family, which I've learned while hunting for images.  I'm starting to think that "weasel" is kind of like "dog" - there are lots and lots of kinds.

But he's also mentioned a few times how he has a hard time finding shirt where the image was in the right place and the right size and blah, blah.  Hopefully these fall within his stringent parameters!  Wink  The book is "Animals: 1,419 Copyright-Free Illustrations of Mammals, Birds, Fish, Insects, etc." by Dover Publications and is full of many great old animal illustrations.

Oh, a picky one, huh? Well let us know how they go over! I'll have to make a note of that book; you never know when you might need a vintage animal illustration!!

Apparently when it comes to tees he is!

attentionspanofnone- Thank you!

grenouille78- Aren't they, though?  He's mentioned that he'd like a t-shirt with a weasel on it, so I know that the weaselness won't be an issue.  But he's also mentioned a few times how he has a hard time finding shirt where the image was in the right place and the right size and blah, blah.  Hopefully these fall within his stringent parameters!  Wink  The book is "Animals: 1,419 Copyright-Free Illustrations of Mammals, Birds, Fish, Insects, etc." by Dover Publications and is full of many great old animal illustrations.

That's gorgeous! Your stitches are so neat, it's amazing that you're a beginner!  I understand totally your conversion experience, too.  I just started up again after not doing any since I was a kid (decades ago - ahem) and it's so rewarding.  It's also so portable and easy to do while visiting or watching movies.
