Cool idea!  Pun intended.

Yes sadly it's true.  CBs is closing on the 15th.  I just went to the last hardcore matinee on Sunday and going to one of the last punk shows tonight.  After Bad Brains plays, I don't think there will be anything left to take to LV.

That's a great bag.  I love how you used the different colors and the faces are priceless.  May I ask, what is a "magic chain"?

What a great idea!  Did you do it on felt?
Yes indeed it is on felt.  Acrylic, to be exact.  I think wool would be a little nicer but wanted to save the good stuff just in case it didn't work out like I had hoped.  Of course now my mom wants one so I'll use the nicer felt.

I love the Mom heart! What an adorable onesie!

How did you manage to embroider on the little tiny sleeve like that? This is totally something I've wanted to do but have been defeated by the small size.

Well don't get me wrong, the seeve is small, but I bought the 12 month size because 1. babies grow so fast and I don't want him to outgrow it in a week and 2. the father (my friend) is 6 foot 6 and I don't know how much he weighs but he's a big guy.  I just picture "little" Spike coming out at over 10 pounds.  Hopefully not, for mom's sake!  So if you buy a onesie that's a little bigger, it's just big enough to hoop and not too hard to stitch on.  A newborn or preemie size, that's probably another story!

Ask and you shall receive.  That's a good idea about masking the address.  I didn't post the back side because I didn't think anyone would want to see it.  Hopefully my luggage doesn't actually get lost because I'm not entirely positive that the airlines will be able to read it!

Thanks Ladies,

You are too kind  Grin  I don't have too many friends with children, let alone friends who would appreciate this style.  They're a little more, um, traditional.  It was alot of fun stiching this and it made me giggle.

I wanted to think of alternative uses for embroidery besides the usual pillowcase, tea towel, etc..  Plus I travel alot, so I thought this would be cute and practical.  I embroidered my name, address and phone number on the back.

I've recently connected with an old friend and found out that his wife is due to give birth any day now.  Of course I couldn't let this opportunity pass by.  A little background info:  my friend is currently the singer in a punk band and used to sing for an old school NY hardcore band.  They've been calling the as yet unborn baby "Spike" so I figured since all good hardcore boys have the old english tattoo on their stomachs, baby Spike should have one as well.

And I couldn't forget about mom, so....

I've been thinking about adhering swarovski crystals and rhinestones to clothing items and bags.  Have any of you used the hot fix stones with the heating wand?  I'm trying to decide whether glue, bedazzler with the settings or the hot fix crystals would work better and be more durabe.
Thanks Smiley  Cindy

Welcome to NY!  The Pearl Paint crafts department has DMC. I've also bought some at Rita's Needlepoint.  I can't remember the exact address but it's in the E. 70's.  You can PM me for the info when I get home.  There's a Michael's somewhere in Queens also.
