{confession: I used regular quilt batting instead of fusible fleece – use up that stash, I always say!!}

P4213576
{which meant I had to quilt the suckers so the batting wouldn't slip}

Your mom doesn't have a camera like that?

Does she have a kitchen?

Then she needs customized gorgeous kitchen towels!!

I found these three towels on sale at Marshall's on Monday night. And I just happen to have this shelf right above my sewing machine that has my inspirational fabric that constantly calls out to me…

"sew with me!! sew with me!!"

So I took some vintage fabrics and took them up on it!

the results?

okay, so your mom isn't into dishes…

how about clothes???

LOL!!

Here's an idea I came up with while hanging out in Marshalls…

Embroidery is in, guys…it can't be avoided! 

So what if you combine FUN embroidery with a fun CHEAP t-shirt?

I found this tshirt for $5.99 at…you guessed it…Marshalls…(I had some mad money that was burning a hole in my pocket!! LOL!!) (click to actually see the t-shirt! LOL!)

AND I found these FABULOUS embroidery patterns at 

Sublime Stitching…

I've already enlarged the Eiffel Tower. Now all I have to do is use white carbon paper to trace the pattern onto the t-shirt and relax in front of our newest movie purchase, The Blind Side (or the three netflix movies waiting for us to watch them!!)

So, this is one of my weekend projects for this weekend. I think it will be great fun to have the Eiffel Tower on my t-shirt!! All for $8.50!! You cannot go into a store (or even find one on Etsy) and buy a hand embroidered shirt for that price! 

I think your mom will be impressed!!!
