Well, its been waaay too long since I’ve posted here — but life just gets a little crazy sometimes! And my life is no exception —
And, as you can tell from the photos — I’ve become a grandmother for the 2nd time! Greyson Brooks made his arrival a week ago – -on Tuesday, June 17 at 4:46 am — weighing 7 lbs., 8oz! Needless to say, we are all thrilled & in serious “baby mode” these days!
Also our youngest daughter (seen here in the strawberry fields!) is expecting “Grandson #3″ in September – so we are busy preparing of this arrival as well! There is just nothing more precious than a new baby! And nothing more fun than sewing & crafting for them! So, I have been busy in my studio making some baby things! And since we seem to only produce boys in this family — this post is going to have a “Boy flavor” to it!
So, this week, I wanted to make some machine embroidered appliqué bibs and burp cloths. Since its summer time, I purchased some really cute summer appliqué designs from Planet Applique. (She has a nice promotional going on – check it out!) The sailboat design that I’m using has 3 appliqué pieces — so I wanted to share with you a video on how to cut all three pieces on your Silhouette.
This video will show you how to create your cut files in 2 different softwares — One that you can save in SVG format — and one where you cannot. This should cover just about everyone! Today’s post is the first part – with the video. Tomorrow’s post will be the actual cutting & stitching part — so you can see how it all goes together! So, click on over to YouTube now to watch this video — and while you’re there — subscribe to my channel! That way you won’t miss part 2! Or any other future videos.
And NOW — for the awesome part!! Silhouette has a great promotion going on now through July 5th! 30% off of everything (well just about — there are some exceptions!) But this is a great time to stock up on all of those consumables — like mats, blades, and for this project — Sewable Fabric Interfacing from Silhouette!
