A few years ago, when my sewing machine died, I decided to buy a new machine with embroidery capabilities. It’s not an amazing fancy-pants embroidery machine that I can scan an image and then create it. It does basic lettering and has a few Disney images built into it. When we went to Disneyland a few years ago I made the kids Mickey and Minnie sweatshirts to wear on the plane. I’ve made tea towels to give as gifts and a couple of aprons, but that’s about it. It makes me nervous because I’m afraid I’ll mess up and mess ups are expensive when you’re making something like a sweatshirt.
So, when my friend Debbie asked me if I would do some lettering for her I told her that I didn’t trust myself. Then she told me that it was just simple patches to tie onto her team’s packs when they do the 3 Day Walk. I could do that! No pressure and if I messed up, it was only a small piece of felt that I’d have to throw out. It was a perfect time to practice and learn how to use this feature on my machine.
Her team’s theme is “Wild About the Cure” so that’s what I wrote. She only asked me to do the embroidery, so I hope she doesn’t mind that I cutsy-fied the patches a little and added ties. Hope you like them Debbie! Have a great weekend!!!
