More Hooded Bath Towels

I have been busy making hooded towels. Some are for orders and others to put into my Etsy shop.

This one is for an order

And this one is for her brother

So, how many of you have a Brother SE-270D? Don't you just hate the threading system? I had been having a heck of a time trying to get the machine threaded. It just would not catch and thread the needle. So, my dh came up with the idea of taking the thread through the steps but NOT cutting it at the end but instead, pull it up and hold it at the top of the threader. Then when you put it down into the machine, it seems to catch and thread better then if you cut the thread. Does this makes sense lol? I will try to take photos so you can see what I mean.

At any rate, I absolutely love the machine (other then the threader) and no longer feel like tossing it out the window!

Off to sew some more towels :)

Hooded Bath Towels

I have been making hooded bath towels for a while but just recently was able to add applique to them. Both of my embroidery machines were not working properly but DH managed to fix them and I am back up and running.

This little hedgehog came from Planet Applique
