KCW - Day 3 Recap

Day 3 is in the books. We had a busy day running errands, and I had a lot of work to do on the computer (technology is such a time black hole!). But I did manage to get in my sewing time working on my new embroidery machine that my hubby got me for my birthday! (He's just the best!)

I'm still learning, but I am loving it. I did have a few mishaps with this shirt. I caught the back of the shirt with the needle (I knew it was going to happen!). I only looked away from a second and bam! But I was able to save it making only a tiny hole in the back of the shirt. Then I see a teen-tiny little bug crawling on the design. I go to wipe it off and crush it leaving a tiny blood trail. Just perfect! So J gets a new shirt and I get to do the design all over again (which isn't so bad). (I found this and several other super cute princess inspired designs over at Lynnie Pinnie.)

I even manged to get a little more hand embroidery done on J's "Pink Dress" I shared on day one. She is getting really excited about it (I think because she is helping mommy sew) which has me motivated to keep things moving on it. I may finish sooner than I think. 

I'm off to redo the shirt from last night and make one other. Can you guess what princess it is going to be? I'm also making matching bottoms to go with the shirts. I can't wait to see the finished outfits. My goal is to try and get them done today! We will see...
