    Sheila you can make them larger than I did. It would make it easier on your hands. I will look forward to seeing what you think. Be honest now and not just protect my feelings! I can't improve them if I don't get honest feedback.

    Thanks everyone and you're welcome to the tutorial. It is something I have had in the back of my mind for months and just didn't get around to doing.

    Hope you all enjoy! But I would really love to see pics if you try making them!!

    I promise I'll be truthful Rhonda. I'll try to get to it tomorrow. I have this ugly red velvet fabric (customer) to make a pillow with an antique embroidery of a Southern Belle on linen, to put a green grosgrain ribbon around that, then affix it to the red pillow. To much Christmas colors for me right after the holidays. It's for her bedroom.

    How would you/me/anyone get a copyright on their original patterns? McCall's or Simplicity & other big pattern makers sell patterns in LQSs that include more than one pattern? Have you tried selling on eBay? I sold a few Univ of Alabama & Auburn Scrub Hats there , but had the surgery, so that got canned for now. Getting to the Post Office was too much for me back then.

    just go back up to the top of the page, click on "bookmark" near Rhonda's name and when the screen changes, write in the box, click on "save". then to check to see if you did this right, go to the top of the page, click on "my bookmarks" and see if it is there. Hope this helps! make sure that you are bookmarking page 1, where the tutorial is... :-)

    This is cute Rhonda, what a great idea; I'd use this for appliqué and do other shapes too! Thank you! :-D

    Thanks everyone I have been making these for several years now. I have a few on my online site.

    You can do hearts like this also and make magnets out of them or applique. Sunbonnet Sue skirts could be cut out of the confusion(crumb) also. I haven't actually done that but it is a thought.

    I had some I had done that I used very light airy fabrics and I loved the look. They looked like they would fly away.
