Kitten tip - read your manual again - I have found 2 new things that my machine does that are really useful and I had not known / forgotten about. I have only had it 30 years - how scary is that!!
I spent all weekend designing and practising a soft dog harness pattern for the Posh Dog range - I have now created and streamlined the making of 2 different size harnesses. One is for a smaller dog - Yorkie size - and the other for a Jack Russell Terrier size dog - Henry was so patient with me while I poked and prodded and measured him. There is a couple of inches adjustable room built into the straps with the velcro fastenings
I have also had some labels printed for the range. Bev over at Ribbon Reel Printing has done them for me - and she was just brilliant. I sent her the logo that hubby has drawn for me and told her what I needed it to say and she came up with the design - she even suggested the colour as it would match all my brown branding. At the moment I have 3 different one with different wording as to what they are made from - I am so thrilled with the effect
I also acquired over the weekend some amazing embroidered, satin finish, heavyweight fabrics - so I have half an idea of seriously, outrageously gorgeous party pieces.
