Debbie send some that heat up this way. We have had a cool summer.

I might be able to do a swap after labor day or even later in September.

It might be good to get people together now and aim the swap date for mid September that way everyone can get the kiddos off to school and such.

What do you swap? Is it just a design or is it a project? It sounds very interesting. What type of project Napkins, pillow cases, Santa stocking, free standing lace??? At the moment I am making little ITH teddy bears for the Sheriffs office for them to put in their cars for kids in distress. They are so greatful I am ashamed I did not think of it sooner. I am making mine out of flannel because they are soft and tactile and will give the little ones something to hold onto during a time of stress. I do say a prayer for the child and the policeman before I hand them in.

I don't know to send pictures, but it had to be a freebe from a long time ago. I didn't even know I had it till I searched my designs for something to use. It is a simple little bear like a ginger bread man. You stitch the face and ears then lay another piece of fabric on top and stitch the outline. It does a bean stitch leaving a small opening on the side. You cut it out, turn, stuff and hand stitch the side closed. I do sew a little bow at the neck, not glue because it may come off in their mouth. There was a cow, a cat, bunny and the teddy. The teddy stitched the best. The rabbit stitched well but is harder to stuff because of the ears and having to sew a tail on the back. It just was too much work for so many. I really don't know how many doz I have made but more are needed so...... The in hoop stitching is only about 8 min. The officer at the desk went out and bought baggies so each one is kept clean and seperate.

I don't remember where I got the pattern. it had to be a freebie way back when.There was a cow, a cat, a bunny and the teddy. The teddy stitched the best. Very simple design like a ginger bread man. You stitch the ears and face, lay another piece of fabric on top and stitch the out line which leaves a spot that doesn't sew. Take it out the hoop, cut it out leaving about 1/8" seam allowance, turn stuff and sew up the side that didn't sew on the embroidery. The emb. takes about 8 min. I sew a little bow at the neck (no glue because kids put stuff in their mouth and we don't want a choking problem). Any soft fabric would do. I just got gifted with this home-dec flannel and wanted to put it to good use. When I have used up this I will find other to use. LOL
