Kristen, a friend of mine, is due any day with her second baby, and we're having dinner with them tonight, so I thought it would be nice to make a gift for the girls- something for them to wear at the hospital perhaps. My original intent was to applique with thread, but after a few practice runs and failed attempts I decided liquid stitch was my only hope!
Amazing to me how difficult it is to trace letters and shapes with a sewing machine. I mean, really! How could it be that complicated? Thankfully, my mom-in-law warned me ahead of time that it's not an ideal job for a novice to undertake, so I don't feel entirely defeated. :)
I don't recommend this project at home unless you use liquid stitch, but for those of you who want to attempt it, I simply traced letters and shapes onto fabric (using cookie cutters), cut them out, and glued them on. :) If you do it without a sewing machine you can finish a set of these in about 30 minutes.
Some of you may have noticed a fabric trend in my posts. . . as in they're all the same! ;) It's not because I'm entirely head-over-heels for this print (though it IS beautiful), it's simply all I have, and I'm trying to make the best of it. :)
Up next, a doll I made using the exact same fabric! LoL!
