Zelda Commission 5: Onto The Next Third

Since I worked yesterday, and when I got home I had a few things to do around the house, I didn’t sew anything. Today I’m catching up on a few things. Once of those things is my current Zelda Commission. I did the first third of it 2 days ago, and now I’m onto the middle section. I’m loving the blending effect of the blues!

First Embroidery Project

I did my first embroidery project today! It turned out perfectly… until I melted the thread with an iron. I had used a marker to mark the fabric and it ironed off when finished. So the entire time I’m pressing this thing as I sew, I remember to use the silicon ironing pad, but then at the last moment, I use the iron to get the yellow marker off, and it melts the thread. The purple rayon was fine, but the black polyester… not so much. I felt like a total heel! It’s still kind of cute though, and at least now I know how to make it for future reference. In fact, I’m thinking of making another in my spare time for my flip flops. It would have to be much larger though.

So today was a good day. I learned how to use an embroidery machine, and tomorrow I’m taking a class on embroidery software. I melted some thread, and now I know I will never do that again! I’ll just wait to wash it off! I’m still petting it on my sewing table next to my laptop. Now off to work on a quilt! Wish me luck!
