Make It Sew!


This bag is highly inspired by a stitching Mindy Holahan did for her Nerdist Podcast visit. If you aren't aware, The Nerdist Podcast is the most AMAZINGly fun nerdy podcast out there. I <3 Chris Hardwick.
Here's a link to the podcast: http://www.nerdist.com/2011/09/make-cool-stuff-the-nerdist-podcast-edition/

Long story short. Chris is moderating a panel with Patrick Stewart (yes, him...swoon) and thinks they should open a yarn store together called "Make it Sew". Mindy took that idea and stitched a gift. I thought, GENIUS! So, in the middle of crafting for everyone else I decided to make a little something just for me.
 

The words are done by iron on transfer onto twill tape. I saw that method and wanted to give it a whirl. Besides, the font might have been a bit tricky to do otherwise. I cheated, I know. Wink

I am putting this post under Needlework and not Bags/Purses/Wallets because....I bought the bag! Sigh, did not sew the thing myself but instead found the cute JCrew burlap bag at a garage sale for 25 CENTS!

I liked the roughness of the bag itself so I knew I wanted to do the stitching a bit rustic too. (Not to mention, I had never embroidered a motif on straight felt before. Stitched a felt motif onto fabric, sure....)
Here's the back:


I love this bag and want to thank you for checking it out!
Enjoy your burrito!

Where did you find such a great pattern for the Enterprise? I've struggled on and off for years with trying to draw one myself but I'm just not particularly good at drawing. Great job, silentblair! Cheesy

Thanks EVERYONE for the great feedback!!!

Honestly, I can't remember exactly. I did a google search for original enterprise and then clicked images. I found the one that suited me best and went from there to print out and transfer the image onto freezer paper then ironed onto the felt.
But this was the closest to the image I remember
