Those are incredibly fun! And my significant other complains because I wear my gardening clogs (from LL Bean) everywhere we go... what would he say if I started sporting those??? I'm so tempted...

That's completely gross, but I do know some folks that would think it was funny! I feel a gag gift coming on...

That is absolutely amazing! I really like the anatomical heart! Did you use stabilizer? I can see how working on thick hoodie fabric would be challenging! Another way to try might be to draw the pattern onto some stabilizer, and put the stabilizer on top of the pattern, then stitch and soak away the stabilizer (use soak away stabilizer, of course). But I don't know for sure, as I've never done that! In any case, it looks good! Your efforts paid off.

He's cute! And angry! He's kind of like BadBadtz Maru, isn't he? The peevish little penguin!

ADORABLE! I like the "ruffle" on the skirt - is it all French knots? Nicely done!

This is adorable, but I confess when I first read the subject line, I thought it was going to be a bib for cats! And yes, I thought "how does she get the cat to wear the bib?"

Well, I think Mr. Clothespin is just happy to be helping!

My grandma gave me some clothespin bags like this - they were made out of old dresses that belonged to my mom - tiny little things! so she sewed up the bottom and the sleeves and filled them with clothespins. I use them to keep my nylons in. Very functional AND cool, just like your bag!

I think stabilizer is like $2.00 and the embroidery thread (it's a special kind of thread) is about .25 a skein. I think you could set yourself up for less than $5.00! If you come into some dough, or it's your birthday, send folks to www.sublimestitching.com and make them get you a stitch-it kit or one of Jenny's pillowcase kits. Those are a really good way to start - especially the stitch it kit because everything is included! I told my sister if she bought me the kit, I'd embroider something for her... works every time!

"Noob" - that's cute! Smiley
Yes, you can just put three or four strands in a needle and start - that's a good way to start! But I'm lame, so I need to use an iron-on pattern - I'm just not coordinated enough to freehand or draw my own. Also, if the material is stretchy, you want to use an embroidery hoop, and put the stabilizer behind the fabric. Or you can draw the design ON the stabilizer and put the stabilizer on top, then wash it away when you are done. This keeps the fabric from getting all stretchy and wonky.
Hope that helps!
