Super Duper

The hoodie was a hit! He loved it!
He looked soooo cute! He wanted to go play baseball in the hoodie lol it was 93 degrees outside! Sometimes I think kids can handle heat better than adults. My siblings and I would spend practically every summer day out in the back yard! I never remember it being too hot to play. It must have to do with being carefree :)
I learn to do a good chunk of my projects with trial and error! When I've embroidered in the past I've used tracing paper, but did a little reading -and DUH carbon paper!!!! 
It works like a charm too! It's going to make embroidering a zillion times easier! 
I'm sure to most this is very obvious, but I was just teaching myself. 

So my dad's gift will get finished quicker and neater. When I would rip the paper away, it would always pull the thread. Only one little bummer is that the carbon paper is like $6 for a 8x10 sheet. You can use them over and over so that's a plus, but $6 for paper? 

I got some dunnys and toys while at Urban with my sister this weekend! And I had given up hope for the robot one, but look what I got!! Tada! Oh and a Clutter Dunny and a chaser toy from Tara Mcpherson's Gamma  Mutant Space Friends!

Pin It

Ha! The hoodie looks awesome all finished! I agree, as a kid I don't remember worrying about the heat or cold as much as I do now.
Great to know about carbon paper, I will have to use that if I ever get on with giving embroidery patterns a try!

That robot dunny is pretty cool!

Thank you ladies! get a dunny a month - it's a like gift to yourself AND it's a surprise everytime bc theyre blind box!

- The hoodie took me two evenings not fully focused, so you could finish one in about 2 or 3 hours. :) I really love them (hoodies), but then I love them more once the kiddos have them on - they are soooo precious!
