It’s free machine embroidery design Monday and today I am trying to combine my son’s birthday party favor idea with my free machine embroidery design of the week. But… here’s the problem – I keep changing my mind.
My initial concept for the party was to appliqué solid colored t-shirts with some simple shape using some funky printed knit fabric. Thomas is turning four and is inviting both boys and girls to the party. So I need something not too gender specific. Also – Thomas is not a boys boy who loves trucks or dinosaurs. He’s just a sweet little boys that likes whatever his big sisters like.
I thought funky stars in different knit prints would be just the ticket. But when I went to JoAnns fabric – of course they didn’t have the fabric I was envisioning. However – what they did have is bright, neon t-shirts for kids on clearance – $1.97/each. My kids were melting down so I picked up 10 of the t-shirts and starting racking my brain for a new concept.
I am not doing stars on t-shirts now. I have a whole new idea that is going to be way cooler. But please enjoy this triple stitch star design that will be fantastic with a knit fabric. Maybe you will have better luck finding the fabric I was looking for.
