I had some time to kill between phone calls,,, so I puttered around with my embroidery machine..
I had ordered the Hedge Hog Pattern and then adding the words, '
Hedge Hog Hut'..

sew cute...
then I decided to play with another pattern,,, and Voila'

Today I promised to take one of my grand-girlies to lunch,, drive thru.. so I will have to wait until later today to test out 2 other patterns that I purchased..

Oh and BTW,, it snowed today, just for about 30min.. and melted quit fast.. a perfect day for playing in the sewing room! lol!

Hey Winnie,, we had a lovely time.. I love how wonderful it feels to walk with a young child, and they reach out to hold your hand..
Jada is 12 and she still likes to hold hands with me.. My other grand girl is my hugger...
I am so Blessed.

Both are really cute. I love hedgehogs and anything winter themed. I'm probably one of the few people who is sad about winter being over with!

So fun Grace! An embroidery machine sounds so fun to play with. I’m glad you and your granddaughter had fun together. She sounds so sweet.

I forgot to mention,, these are FSL designs,, meaning they are stitched on a water soulible stabilizer , that after stitching,, you dip the work in water to dissolve the stabilizer... well I tried this first and my machine kept hiccuping so I decided to just stitch it on regular stabilizer and trim around it.. and honestly I am quite pleased with it.

I have used the water soulible stabilizer with larger 'lacy' type patterns and it works fine,, I suspect that because this is such a small pattern.. my machine had hiccups...

I would have never guessed you could make earrings this way! So neat. You will have to share a picture of the other ones.

FLS? I have a machine that takes FES, but not FLS. Was that a typo?

We are going to have to do a ME swap soon. How about one for Mother's Day? Anyone want to play? Just something simple like a mug rug or a bookmark.

Jean and Grace, you two have some amazing machines that do this embroidery! I bet once you figure out how to use it, the possibilities are endless. Complicated sewing machines scare me off!! LOL!!

Grace - I think all that wine got to your machine LOL that's why it had the hiccups LOL!!! Those are really cute. I never knew you could make earrings like that. I'll have to look into those kind of patterns.

Grace, I would love to see your key fob. I Really haven’t heard of them until about 2 weeks ago. They are popping up in the repping world and I’m interested in them. I have seen a couple cute ones but haven’t made a commitment yet. It’s amazing to see all the things these machines can make.

I think I might use craft felt, and stabilizer to sew my design on my key fob,, and then after it's stitched, I might use iron on fusible webbing to layer a 2nd layer of felt (on the back side).. it will cover the underside(bobbin) stiches and give the fob a bit more stability..
Both Kathy-isewabernina & JeanP are more advanced in M.E.,,, they might have a better idea...

Grace U think adding the backing is a great idea! It would help the fob to last longer besides giving it more body.
