Christmas Craft Sale/WIP/Cheater Floating Method for Machine Embroidery

I’m starting to think we should have named our blog Oops she did it again because yesterday I fell asleep again doing my post… I mean like full on asleep with my laptop on my lap. I’m surprised it didn’t try to take my snoring and use it in my speech to text program lol. Either way, I apologize for not having a post yesterday! Now for the actual post…..

Yes, a very long title, and yes, sorry another Craft Sale Post lol! Because that is pretty much all I am working on right now… other than trying to stay awake, that will be the topic of my posts for at least another week after this one. Then it will turn into a lot of Christmas gifts and decor!

Saturday (after grocery shopping) and Sunday I spent at my sewing machine, working on tea towels and potholders for the craft sale.

This is everything I got done over the weekend…. embroidery wise….

Out of all of them, I have to say that this set is my favourite so far….

I know I have posted at least one potholder project and probably a few tea towels. I am sharing them again this time because due to my laziness/lack of time I found a sort of cheater way to “float” the potholders while embroidering them that doesn’t require me to do a basting stitch on each one first.

What I did instead of running a basting stitch on each potholder…. I just pinned them, top and bottom to the stabilizer, fastened the stabilizer to the hoop and embroidered it like that. The first time was an experiment to see if it would work… and it did!!!! That in itself saved/will save me a lot of time both doing the basting stitch and having to remove it after stitching!

Potholders pinned to Stabilizer, ready for stitching!

Today I am off to the doctors and then back to my sewing machine and Cricut, trying to get everything for the craft sale done by next weekend!!!
