After making a few of these pups I got much braver! I learned how to use an overcasting foot and stitch (so technical), and I've learned how to trace, cut, and piece the letters on the heat n bond faster and more efficiently! I have also added a hood to all of my latest creations!

Thanks to peeps like my friend Valerie, I have started trying new things in the sewing department. It is so fun to know that I can tackle a new project and it come out less janky than expected!
It helps that Val totally believes in me. I am only One Step Away... from being a decent sewer! I don't feel like I can call myself a seamstress just yet, so the word "sewer" will have to suffice.
Here is the latest:
Personalized Pool Towels
Basically this project is a $4 towel (Target), scrap fabric, and Heat n Bond iron on adhesive. We totally hand drew the letters on notebook paper. I did use two spools of thread for the zigzag stitching. Check it out:
See? Not janky even on the back!
Tess is ready for me to hook her up now. She chose the towel, fabrics, and thread. We are thinking about adding a surf board or boom box to hers since she only has 4 letters. :)
