If you know me....you know that I don't sew, I don't crochet, and I can kind-of-sort-of knit with the help from my Nifty Knitter.....So when my cousin gave me this little beauty of a book I didn't know if I was up to the challenge....
Sublime Stitching is such a fun, and surprisingly easy way to pretend like I know something about sewing and embroidery. There are tons of re-usable iron on transfers in this book to keep you busy for a while. Everything from fruits, tea cups, guitars, and Scottie dogs....the list goes on.
Since I am...(as you probably already know because I can't stop
complaining talking about it) about to have baby #3 and I have baby on the brain....all the time......I wanted to make something for our newest addition.
Guess I just spilled the beans about his name :)
To start...you will need a tiny little onesie...oh how I love little baby clothes. Next cut out your transfer, place ink side down and iron into place. This transfer washes out entirely so if you don't get your stitches exactly right, you won't see the black outline at all once it is washed. Choose your embroidery thread colors and get to stitching! This book has such detailed photos of how to do simple stitches step by step. Trust me, if I can do it...you can do it!
Here is an up-close shot of my handy work...not perfect, but neither is his momma so I don't think he will mind at all.
Have you tried embroidery before? I think it is making a come back for sure!
