The last few days I have been working on this T-shirt layout. I am making this one for my husbands business. He owns and operates a cabinet shop here in the Edmond, OK area. For years he has asked me to make shirts, but I was overwhelmed and felt I needed more practice. This week practice smak-tice I am going to attempt this!
First shot I cut too deeply but I didn't want to waste my pieces so I pieced it all on to the shirt. That is why you see all the strips of heat tape, I was trying to hold my design and all its pieces together. I wish I had not done that, because in the process of moving the shirt from one spot to another my pieces became unaligned. I attempted straightening during the process but it was too late. I should have fixed the issue by starting over so that my colors would each be on one full sheet nicely aligned and one time shot at removal.
It still looks great even if it is a little off, which if my husband wasnt wearing it would drive him crazy to look at, good thing this shirt is for him! LOL!

This evening my husband brought it to my attention that one of our employees will have been with us 6 years! He wanted me to make a cheesy certificate. I said I have even better idea! I will make him a T-shirt. What a catchy T-shirt it is I might say. I also managed to find a printable certificate online!

I made the bottom of this basket a month ago and felt even though the pattern did not call for a handle it needed a handle. SO I added the handled in same coral color as the joining stitch at bottom of basket. Now this basket is complete.

Happy Sunday morning to you my blog following friends! Today I am sharing yesterday's project. It started off as a bobble stitch hot pad. I was not very hip on the rainbow colors for a hot pad, so I decided it would make a better easter basket. I did not follow a pattern for this project, I made up my own as I went along and made it through entire skein of yarn with 2 inches left! Didnt have enough to sew the handle onto basket. I love when I use the full skein up on one project and don't have to buy more yarn!

Hello blog following friends! I sure hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I am having a great weekend, watched the new Rogue 1 Star Wars Movie today with my husband, afterwards While he was napping I decided to dig through my yarn stash and see what I had to make something for Easter. I decided on this adorable Easter egg! The best part it is from a free pattern I found on Ravelry! I am so pleased with how it turned out I had to share with all of you!
