I REALLY want to get a sewing machine this summer. I could kick myself for passing on one at a recent flea market I was at. This lady was literally giving away (I spent a few dollars and she started giving me baby stuff for free!) her late mother-in-law's things. She mentioned the said sewing machine but my sister and mom already took off and my arms were filled with a stuffed monster, horse on a stick, baby books, and other stuff. Darn! I really want that machine now. About 15 years ago, I bought a "Tiny Tailor" machine from Walmart. I was never able to figure it out. I ended up putting it on the curb with a "free" sign. (Someone did take it right away!) However, now with YouTube videos, I'm sure I would make more progress. There are so many great things I want to make. Plus, I love the look of sewing onto paper.
So, not being about to sew, I decided to print out an object and use an iron-on fabric transfer. In my hoard of supplies, I found two sets of transfer paper. I bought some cotton one-sies at Walmart. (Sadly, I could ONLY find 100% cotton long-sleeves. UGH.)
I googled this image, printed it out, then copied it onto the transfer paper with my ink jet HP printer after cutting it out. I still am struggling with this Mac Book Book. I'm really good at MS Word but awful on this Mac. I then ironed it on.
(I am trying to find the source of this image to cite. However, no one is reading this blog anyway so at this point, I guess it is a moot point:( )
