Yes a giveaway!! This Iron Craft Challenge is Rain. It can be something with rain or something associated with rain like a cloud. I felt like doing some hand embroidery this week and I didn't have many idea except a baby bib. And yes what I have created-I am giving it away. Read below on how you can enter and the win this bib!!! First let's explain what I did!
I still have a few of these left from when I did the baseball bib. I wanted to try something else so I thought it was a great opportunity for me. I am really trying hard to finish the projects I start I just need less mess!!!
Basically all what this is this loosely woven heavy cotton fabric. It came in the stash from the lady I purchased things from. It may be like a duck cloth sort of deal but makes for great hand embroidery. I ironed fusible fleece to the back of it to give some stability for sewing also. Now to pick my threads....
Also I needed to pick my cloud. I litterally went into Powerpoint and found a cloud clip art and printed it out. It was the perfect size.
Cut out. Trace onto the bib with a pencil.
I know I wanted a cloud with a smiley face and rain with hearts at the ends. It just seemed happy. Off I went embroidering. Nothing fancy just a simple back stitch.
Now to add to the rain. The hearts were outlined in the floss first and then filled with a satin stitch. Pretty easy.
Now I need to finish the bib- give it a back and add some Veclro.
Pretty easy considering I finished a bunch of bibs for charity (post to come!). I just love this bib!!!! Hopefully you do too!
