I was given a book for my birthday in 2012, it is by the brilliant Poppy Treffrey and contains oodles of advice and encouragement to just do it!
So in the end, I just did it!
My Tiddly Toes needed a gym bag for school. Being short on time I ordered a plain one from Panduro Hobby.
I wrote up her name in a flowing, handwriting type of font on the computer, I thought this would lend itself best to flowing my machining.
I printed it out bold so that I could see it through the interfaced fabric, like this......
I then simply hooped it up and started stitching!
And this is the result........ta-dah!......
A little wonky, but I'm quite pleased and Tiddly Toes is over the moon! No-one else has a gym bag like this!
The moral....just have a go!
Have you tried anything new recently?
