I don't think real pedophiles are funny, but a giant cartoon bear pedophile on a potholder is funny, because of the absurdity. To me, anyway. You don't have to like it. It also cracks me up that Kanye interrupts your cooking to tell you that Emeril is better.

O.O   *astounded by the awesomeness*

LOOVE the House one. I will refrain from making jokes about how hot he is, and how he's perfect for a potholder. xD

Great job! I'm working on some applique for a top-secret xmas surprise for my husband (a WoW stocking) and I'm having a heck of a time with the embroidery outlines... yours is machine stitched or hand stitched? (sorry- just realized I hadn't looked that closely yet...) Either way, I envy your skill!

I don't hand sew unless I really, really, really have to. Wink The lettering is done on an embroidery machine, everything else is good ol' fashioned zigzag with a short stitch length and a width of 2-2.5.

These are so amazing! How did you cut out the applique pieces so exactly? They're tiny and brilliantly done. Smiley (THIS ROCKS)

I plan what I am going to make on the computer and then print it out, backwards if I remember to.

Then take a sheet or roll of Sulky Sticky, to which I am now forever indebted. This stuff: http://www.createforless.com/Sulky+Sticky+Stabilizer+Package+7.5x+9+12+pc+White/pid31862.aspx?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cse

It has a paper side that peels off, and a stabilizer side that feels like any normal interfacing. Put paper side down, on my printed sheet, and trace off one color's design.

Then peel off paper, stick to fabric's wrong side. The sticky serves 4 functions now:
*It provides an outline to cut your appliques along.
*It keeps your fabric from fraying.
*It keeps your fabric stiff, which is easier to cut.
*It has a texture that helps position appliques without them sliding all around.
