You have me in Stitches

This weekend my mom, sister and I were at Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabric store. We came across this great bolt of dishcloth fabric. Can you believe that it was already pre-hemmed? So all you do is...cut...hem the ends....and decorate with some sassy embroidery!

Needlecrafter has free images that you can print out and trace onto a given dishcloth to beautify with some colorful stitches.

PatternBee has vintage patterns for sale and a couple nursery rhymes as for free downloads! Also check out there super cute vintage children's apron pattern.

Also...dont forget E-Bay - there are lots of people selling vintage patterns there!

And.....of course...can't talk about sassy embroidery without mentioning Sublime Stitching! How can you possibly live without Roller Derby and Scooter Babe designs?

I just might hafta get the Scooter Babe set!!! Oh Oh I can embroider the scooter in Vino red. That would be too fun. Of course Cristina, you are the only person that knows what I look like, so you know I don't look like the Scooter Babe that can be embroiderered....

hi cristina!

great fabric shop: treadle yard goods, on grand at hamline (st. paul). grand avenue from about 2 blocks west of snelling all the way through to victoria (about 2 miles?) has many small shops and things. bus #63 follows grand ave.

in minneapolis: uptown is kind of a main shopping area, but has some chain stores. there is design collective (on 26th at hennepin) and local motion (on hennepin at 28th), which sell handmade/small label clothes and things.

for the fabric trip of your lifetime, go all the way out to brookyln park and check out s. r. harris fabrics: has directions.

email me (ohbara at gmail dot com) if you have questions! hope you enjoy our cities!
