Happy Memorial Day - part 2

Don't know what happened, but here I am with the rest of my pictures...Here is the "sewing" that I am doing.  I am fortunate to have some wonderful peeps who gifted me with a Petit Four of Fig Tree fabrics.  I am making a sewing machine cover with them.
The top half will be the front, the bottom half will be the back.  Now to make the sides and top - I'll use the same brown polka dot fabric for those 3 parts.

Here is my stitching - something new for me was using Press 'n Seal to trace the pattern and then to stitch right through the film.  Once the stitching is done, you carefully pull away or cut away the film.  This will either be a wall hanging or a pillow.

Hope you all are enjoying the day - the official start to summer - but also a day to remember the men and women who have protected us from harm.  God Bless America!

  1. Your method of transferring your design with the Press N Seal is interesting. How are you coming along with this project? Did the PNS come off easily?


Thank you for leaving a comment. I'll send you a reply back.
