Back With a Vengeance!

Hopefully I can live up to the hype I created for myself in the post title.  I do have a half dozen projects to share and 3 tutorials/tips related to machine embroidery.  If I can balance family,work and sewing/blogging the way I hope to, I should be posting more frequently for a bit :)

On to the good stuff.  It's a bit belated, but I want to share the shirt I made for Danielle for Halloween (sadly, Samuel never got one).  Here's my little "Candy Corn Cutie".

Yeah, it was that warm in October!

I know of at least 3 sites that have a version of this design, including Stitch On Time, but I was feeling adventuresome and decided to save a couple pounds by making my own design using files I already had.  I used:
I did a little bit of resizing/rotating of the little candy corns, but other than that it was really just layering the different bits together.  Here's what the mashup looked like in Embird:

The candy corn design from the Peace, Love, Candy Corn was actually the first t-shirt I embroidered for Danielle, two years ago.  I didn't get any great pictures of the design, but I had a lot of fun looking at pictures of her a few years ago and I'm going to include one anyways.

Look how little she was!

And, not to be left out, here's Samuel, in his non-embroidered shirt.  I don't feel too bad, I think he's pretty cute, even in a plain shirt :)

He picked himself out a
Samuel-sized pumpkin

I'll be back tomorrow--our Sunday mornings are filled with church, but that's followed up with my second favorite part of the day--naptime!
