|Portal Embroidery Hoops from troublewithcrafting|
I made a few insinuated hot pads for Christmas, and when I saw the embroidery hoops from thetroublewithcrafting I realized it could translate (hopefully) into some potholders.
I was merrily zooming along when I got stuck. I got stuck was because I had trouble printing out just the right size Chell (that's the character's name) to use to go on them. Then when I thought I had it, with some experimentation realized there's not a graceful way to rotate him to keep him inside the potholder area without him being too present or not present enough in each one. Also I have to do applique, and I am pretty intimidated at the idea of managing that with this project.
So everything is cut out, it had been hiding in a drawer like any good UFO should. I guess now is as good a time as ever to let it sit on my table taunting me until I get it done!
