Michael Jackson

A friend asked me to do a T Shirt for her grandson who is crazy about Michael Jackson. I was so happy with the way this turned out.  He really loved it too and wouldn't take it off.   As you can see from the photo below how excited he was.

Laken's First Christmas

I made this Christmas Bauble for my First Great Grandson Laken.  I bought some Scrapbooking  Alphabets and they were sticky as they came off the paper backing I just stuck them on to the Bauble.  I put his name and date of birth and weight and length.   This will be a lovely memory as they hang it on the Christmas Tree each year. The Bauble also has flashing lights that can be turned on.

Christmas Tea Towels......

A couple of hands towels that I embroidered.  I like to have a few items on hand that might come in handy for Christmas gifts.  Love how they turned out.

Table Runner..

Another gift for the gift box, a table runner that I did embroidery on each end. Also had this design for a while.  I am really loving using some of the designs that I have had for a while.  I used a wash away stabilizer for the backing and a water soluble topping.  I also used a Christmas overlay in photoshop.

Teachers Gifts.....

 I did a few little gifts for teachers and found these lovely sayings and put them on tea towels. Not sure where the designs are from as I have had them for quite a while.

Santa Magic Key Door Hangers.....

How cute are these Santa Magic Key Door Hangers.  I got them from Etsy. I stitched them out on vinyl and was really happy with the way that they stitched out.  I will be making a lot of things with vinyl as it is so easy to work with.  I think the grandkids will be happy with the Santa door hangers so the big fat man can get in through the door as not many houses have chimneys here..  I also used  some Boken overlays in photoshop for the background.

The last couple of weeks I have been in Bowen visiting the grandkids and seeing my second eldest grandson, Kellen graduate.  I am so proud of this young man and hope that all his dreams come true.

Tea Light Angels...

I love these little tea light angels. I made both  girl and boy ones.  Again something to put away in the gift box.  I got the In The Hoop Design from Embroidery Garden and also used a snow overlay in photoshop

 I have had these two bags for quite a while now and thought it was time to do something with them.  I already had the flowers that I had made from Embroidery Garden. They were an In the Hoop Design and you just go around in a circle and stitch the petals on till you get to the centre.  For the Centre I mixed up some tiny black beads with some glossy accents that I use for scrapbooking and it set hard and shinny and it looked really great.  The leaves were also from Embroidery Garden and I used Texture Magic and that makes the leaves shrivel up when heat is applied.

Zebra Bags........

 Since we will not be using  plastic bags from the big chain stores after Christmas. I decided to give the females in the family a tote bag  with  this gorgeous Zebra design on it.  It was a free design and I am not sure where I got it from. They look so pretty all done in different colours.   The bags are from Target and  they have a design on the other side.  At first I was going to try and cover the design but then I thought why not just put the design on the other side and that way I am not so limited with what design I can use.. The bags are strong enough to hold groceries. I really love the way this design turned out..  I found the design here but you have to join the site to be able to download.

Baby Boy Sprinkler Set>>>>>>

 I made this baby boy sprinkler set  for the baby shower that I went to for my great grandson, who will be born in December.    It was a cute little set to make.    The design is from Embroidery Garden and had very clear instructions.   I made the baby rug. I am only beginner at crocheting  and I was happy with how it turned out.

Tea Pot Coasters....

The Tea pot Coaster are a Birthday present for my friend, Trish.    The design was a freebie from Kreative Kiwi.   They are very easy to stitch out and the instructions are very easy to follow. The cup saucer and plate belonged to my mother and as a little girl growing up it  was my favourite and I always used to look at the pretty things but never allowed to touch.  I was lucky to get to keep that little bit of my mum.

Jogger Bags......

I love making these bags from Disorderly Threads  Although I thought they would be a bit bigger as I bought the biggest design as I now have the large hoop.    I used the shinny vinyl for the shoe and found it very easy to work with.  I made these bags for my two youngest grandsons Thomas and Cooper.   I keep  thinking I will run out of things to make now the boys are getting older but I always manage to find something.  I am also practicing a bit of Photoshop as well using the Sparkler overlays.
