Happily at my sewing table...I think this was my first sign of what was to come. Remember these. I love little people. This is one of my latest acquisitions. Sue at It's a Very Cherry World is hosting the cutest swap and I was lucky enough to get a spot. Part of the swap includes making anything that includes your partners initial. My partner Amy of Paper Trails Leaver does such gorgeous paper crafts that I was stumped. Off to my cupboards to find some inspiration.
Not long ago I grabbed a stack of patterns at an estate sale. I remembered seeing a monogram pattern and oh the goodness inside...but they were all H's. All different sizes. Big to little. These monogram transfers are done in silver. They are stunning on their own.
I had to get creative to make my A.
Then I had to pick the perfect vintage hanky from my collection. Then I needed to perfect my lines. The transfer still worked after all these years.
Thread. Needle. Hoop.
I was surprised how simple this was.
Such a beautiful addition to a vintage piece.
Looks like it was meant to be an A all along.
Now...pick the perfect fabric pieces and keep on stitching....
I will keep you posted.
