(Please forgive my absense, I've been working on something b-i-g. Details soon.)
Using my monogram book, I picked out this pretty letter for my daughter. It was actually a capital "E" that I changed to a "C". This little monogrammed shirt was started at the beginning of summer. Half way done, I put it down and failed to resume. Now, the shirt is too small for my daughter. Booooo. (They really do grow too fast!)
But, a nifty tip will come forth from this unfinished business of mine. If you're looking for a tracing table on the cheap, look no further. There are some great tracing tools out there, but why not save yourself $50? Personally, I don't have room to keep buying gizmos. Plus, I'm into the simple, easy and already-have-something-that-will-do. There's always the tracing paper taped to the window method. But, my tracing skills diminish as the blood drains from my arms.
Rummaging through my kitchen, I found these: a square pyrex dish and a click light. Put them together and voila! Dirt cheap tracing table. Perfect for embroidery, crafting, kids art, etc.
