With all the alphabet posts finished and the kids in school, I actually managed to make something. This is a craft blog, after all.
It’s my first quilted bib and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. What is there not to love about patchwork and bias tape after all?
I scooped up that chocolate brown linen on sale about a month ago and I am just crazy for it. It is a pain in the you-know-what to embroider on, though. I have a white pencil, but it doesn’t show up too well. Anyone have other suggestions for transferring images or text onto dark fabric? I have a fairly large embroidery project in mind that I want to use dark blue linen for, but don’t want to start unless I know I can transfer it successfully.
Thanks for all the back to school love – both girls had great first and second days. We all love school. Phew! OK, the craft swap is on Monday. I am about 75% finished…better get cracking. Have a great weekend. I will be back next week with some lovely show and tell. The mailman has brought me some lovely packages in the past few weeks. Oh yeah.
