So, does anyone else try out a pattern or new technique and then want to do a bunch of those things until you're sick of them? That happens to me a LOT. I recently got into personalizing things with names.
Now, I've decided that to properly create letters that look good and have a lot of character I need a AccuQuilt Cutter. Probably not the GO version but the GIGANTIC, EXTRA HEAVY version. WHY? Well, I double checked and as of now, the GO cutter doesn't have any accompanying alphabets. AND, I really want to cut multiple layers of denim (for when I cut up old blue jeans) and I know the large version of the AccuQuilt Cutter will go through a lot more layers at once. And...I know I can think of some more reasons!
But, for now, I have been hand stenciling letters onto fabric. Not a quick process but it works. I decided on pillowcases and travel pillows for my niece, nephew and their friends.
I really liked the process and would love doing more...but it really does take a long time to trace and cut out those letters.
Here's what they looked like.
I experimented with decorative stitches until I found one I liked.
Both girly and boy-ish, I tried out both types of pillows. I'm happy to say that the recipients were pleased!
I was also really pleased with the final product. Until next time!!
