Just a few more little christmas gifts that I hadn't got around to posting.
Here's some things I learned: Don't over-iron tiny bits of fabric adhered with fusible web. The glue can sort of start to melt away and they won't stick too well. Also, use a round-tipped needle when embroidering on knit. You'd think that one would have been obvious to me since I know to do that for machine sewing, but it took me a bit to figure it out.
I also made these coat hook plaques for my sister's apartment. They're inexpensive wood plaques from Michaels that I painted and mod podged fabric onto. When I use mod podge on fabric I find it best to paint a layer on the the back of the fabric before cutting it and let it dry. This makes the fabric stiff and allows you to cut without frayed edges and it seems to prevent so many bubbles.
