I love them all! Especially the jellyfish, the radio, the rocket. Nice work. That'll be one well dressed baby.

May I ask what you used for the stabilizer? Thanks!

So cute. I love your work.

I was reading your blog, and I had a thought. You should wear those dresses anytime, anywhere. I dress up whenever I want--even if others aren't. I think any occasion is a time to dress as you want and to feel fabulous. So I say go for it.

I am waiting on water soluble stabilizer. But I have read about people using freezer paper and tissue paper as well. I am going to try to use this and see what happens.

I just draw out an idea of what I want the eyes to look like. And then I copy it as best as possible. Satin stitch is good for filling in areas. And then you could use backstitch to outline or add in details or to add a glint of life or whatever works.

Wow that is gorgeous work! Did you use a pattern? I love the design.

So, if you're looking for flour sack towels, and want some good ones that are on sale right now, you'll save about $3 if you get them by the dozen from ACS while they're on sale!

These look great! Thanks for posting.

I have been using ones from Sam's Club. They are $12.28 for 24, which makes them $.51. Plus shipping of course.

I wonder how the ACS compare. I might just have to check them out.

You could always "sew the knot".  Instead of tying the actual knots on the floss, loop 'em.  For instance say you are normally using 4 strands, take two and make it extra long. Double it over so it makes the four strands.  Then thread your needle so that at the end where you would normally have the knot there is a little loop instead.  Then start your first stitch, pull the loop all the way to the end but don't let it go through the fabric. Make a small stitch and go up through the loop to the fabric.  Now your floss it knotted with no little bumps.  This method it super secure too!  Then to finish off your pieces of floss instead of knotting it you can pull the needle through some of the stitches on the backside.  By pulling it through enough of the existing stitches it's nice and secure without a knot. 
If all else fails throw a little patch of a nice soft fabric on the back so the threads don't touch the skin at all.  (l would do this if you use any scratchy metallic threads for sparkles)

This is such a great idea. Does it have a name or something to refer to it by? Great tip!

I was shopping at TJ Maxx last week, and it reminded me that those discount stores always tend to have boxes of hankies. Some are embroidered with an initial, but I always find sets that are not. They are not too badly priced.

Check TJ Maxx, Ross and Marshalls in the men's accessories department.
