Burp Cloths and Computers!!!

Here is the AC Diamond Patch with initials inside! I've added this pic to my Gallery at http://www.appliquecafe.com/! This is a short sleeve blue Garanimals tee from Walmart!

And here are the 6 burp cloths I finished up yesterday! I got some practice in sewing all that ribbon on the end! Hobby Lobby has that great fat ribbon with white stitching on the ends - the lime on the airplane burp cloth. You can usually find it 50% off and I bought a bunch of colors yesterday. And I had some green ric rac in my drawer, so I added it to brown ribbon for the patch burp cloths!


Right now I'm finishing up an order for 11 t-shirts, so I'll post a similar picture when I get done! If you can see the check fabric on the dump truck, that is the fabric I got at PBJ Friday. And someone asked where PBJ was - it's in Montgomery on Carter Hill Road a couple of doors down from Sonic near the Mulberry Street light! I've also had a lot of people ask where to get the cute Beehave shirts. Other than PBJ, I don't know!? I'm not sure they are available anywhere online!? I think they were $18 at PBJ? http://www.dharmatrading.com/ has some pretty cute white tees as well. Not as cute as the Beehave, but they do have some with ruffles!

Yesterday was a fabulous day for Applique Cafe!! Actually Sunday AND Monday we had serious e-mail problems. With every order and Paypal e-mail we received, we also got a "Return to Sender" e-mail!! I spent most of the day re-sending out designs from my Knology e-mail!! Our Web Host had to clear it all up for us and today I didn't get any return e-mails, so thankfully it is all resolved! I was not a happy camper yesterday!! I actually felt like punching my computer a few times!!!!!!

I have 6 new designs to sample for Applique Cafe - 2 are for Easter. I'm trying to get these t-shirts done, and I also have another large job with about 15 shirts to do. I will try to squeeze them in this week so we can get them listed, and we will most likely extend the sale another week! Stay tuned...

Rosemary, I don't remember how exactly I found your blog but I LOVE your designs, so creative! I have 2 questions for you. One, what might be a good embroidery machine to start out with? I want to monogram and do shirts like yours for my nieces and future children! Two, where do you get your burp cloths, I usually put fabric down the middle but I cant seem to find nice enough cloths. THANKS a lot!

Rosemary - I get my burps here by the dozen:

A little cheaper than what you are paying. She has excellent customer service and she will send a sample to see if you like them. I think they are a little thinner - which I like!

LOVE your blog and applique site!! I have bought many of your designs and they stitch fabulous!Just wanted to leave a tip for making sewing the ribbon on burps easier. You may already do this, but it helps me to keep my ribbon straight. I use stick craft glue (like used for scrapbooking) on the back of the ribbon and then position the ribbon(you can reposition until you get it straight)then let it dry. Once dry you can sew it on perfectly without any movement or stretching or having to use pins.
