Wish I could say that cowboy number two was done, but that little fellow is still in the making. He is going to be so cute, sitting on a rock, playing the banjo.
I kept busy today getting my next free design together. Since I manually digitize all of my designs (no autodigitizing here) and then test stitch the design over and over again, it’s rather time consuming, but I think you will like the new design. This one is for baby girls. It’s an applique onesie to be placed on baby blankets, diaper totes, center of wallhangings, towels, etc. As soon as Paul gets a chance, we’ll be putting it up. I learned a few things from doing this design – one of them is that when you stitch on interlock, it’s a good idea to interface it first and have the grain of the interlock going crosswise to the knit interfacing’s. Also having the ribbing of the interlock knit go crosswise helps to make sure lettering doesn’t “fall” between the ribbing. Yes, I did use Solvy on top as well.
Here is a photo of a tag that’s part of the for sale design. The free design will be the 4×4 version only, without the instructions and eyelet for the tag.
We’ll be announcing in the yahoo group as soon as the free design has been uploaded.
