I have found the most adorable set of Iron On Transfers EVER!
(Okay, I’ve never really gone hunting for iron on transfers, but I found a pack tucked away on a back shelf at Joann’s and I’m sure it’s got to be the best….or close to it)
Now, I’ve never really done any Ironing in my day, so this was an experiment for me all the way.
Here are some photos of how it went:
Whoops! Kinda Blurry Right?
I wish I was more patient but I’m wiggly and fast about my transfer ironing.
I do like the faded look though, so I’m pretty happy….we’ll see if they hold up in the wash cycle!
Now for a call out for some serious help.
I bought a blanket kit for Monkey this week. Wasn’t it pretty?:
Yeah, Wasn’t it Pretty?
…….. it no longer looks like that. Right now it’s a jumbled heap of a mess taking up way too much space on my sewing desk. The pins are sticking every which way, and I’ve all but given up. And I’m ashamed to say that I’ve thought once or twice about throwing in my “Later” bin.
(We all have “I’ll Do It Later” bins right? The ones we empty out on the 25 cent table at our yearly Garage sales…..come on…..quit kidding yourself….you’ve got one….you probably call it a “Closet”)
Anyway, the problem here is that I’ve never used Baby Blanket Binding stuff…..(whatever)…..that silky ribbon that goes along the edges.
I’ve got it all pinned, but I can’t seem to get the sewing machine to sew through both the front and the back of the binding. (devestating thought isn’t it?)
It’s the most frusterating thing in the world when you get to the very last step of your project and then break FOUR…yes FOUR needles, (completely depleting your stash of extra needles)….and can’t continue on your way to finish up the goods.
Serious….what am I doing wrong here.
Can’t they make this stuff IRON-ON?
