SOo i love all things that involve needles and any type of string. I knit, crochet, & sew soo i wanted to tackle yet another needle craft. I bought the sublime stitching craft pad and got going! and let me just say i am in love Smiley i plan to buy all the books and even the starter kit to get the cute pink scissors and another pattern.
this is my first try, i practiced on horrible fabric cause i couldn't find anything else! its like a thermal fabric soo stretchy! so i put iron on interfacing on the backside cause that's the only thing i had laying  around, it helped a little bit.


the picture didn't iron well cause the fabric was bumpy that's why her face isn't like the original picture i kinda just had to go with it & try and make her still look cute... oh yeah i didn't quite finish the little X's and dots but eh its just practice.

I just did my first order from Sublime Stitching and some towels and napkins, and I have to say that your first attempt is inspiring!  I only hope mine turn out so pretty.  I can't wait till they get here, my fingers are itchy.

I ordered some sublime patterns the other day and I got them today. Now I need to find something to embroider them on - can't wait to start! And I was really disappointed that the tote bags had sold out.
