    Machine embroidery: sewing for busy people.

    Not entirely "quilting" related but I finally did something with a sewing machine. I embroidered some knit caps for Wiggles's daycare class. The hats were purchased from walmart which took trips to 2 different stores to gather enough identical caps. I floated them on a piece of soft'n'stable and pinned water soluble stabilizer over the top. I used a font called Countryside and made the names in SewWhatPro (I didn't like the lowercase "b" so I even altered the "d" to be a "b" instead). Everything was stitched out on my Brother SE400. Not the fanciest or most incredible thing I've made but I know the kids will like them.

    The hats still have wet spots from rinsing off the water soluble stabilizer in this picture.

      They will love them. Just got my first sewing/embroidery machine and can't wait to make something with it.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your project.... And also sharing the picture of Mr. Wiggles. He is handsome for sure

        You're such a "cool" Dad to do this for your son and his class! They turned out fantastic and will keep those cute little heads & ears warm.

        And can definently see where Mr. Little Wiggles gets his good looks from.

                And what about little Miss Daisy and Mrs. C???

                it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                        You are such a cool dad! Daycare workers will love the hats with the names. Kids are growing up so fast - they are both adorable!

                            Beautiful family and how lucky are all those children for whom you made those caps for.
                            Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
