Beginning to look like Christmas

This year to hold the cash gifts to our children and grands, I'm making tiny
drawstring bags. Since it is the easiest, the fabric is a fine red fleece
and the drawstrings are gold cord. I've embroidered their names on the
bags.
Not one bobble or snarl in the entire flock. Looking back, I really should
have tested the fleece to make sure it didn't bleed onto the embroidery
thread when drying from soaking off the stabilizer. I didn't. It didn't.
Next time we have a beginner machine embroiderer - we should persuade
them to start off embroidering fleece or towels. This is So much easier
than silk batiste. Polly

This is a brilliant idea! I've thought doing something similar for my brood, but haven't so far. I did some small groups of wall hangings a few years back for some of my daughters.
I was thinking of using satin in different colors, such as royal blue, red, green and even white, but fleece sounds much easier. One of my DD sews & embroiders beautifully and she also recommended fleece.
She just received a new Baby Lock Ellisimo machine for her birthday to replace her old 7570 Pfaff and I know she will do lots of embroidery for the holidays, I know.
I doubt I'll do much this year because of my sight, which has definitely improved after the 1st cataract surgery this week. I will have the other done in early December. In the meantime, we're spending Thanksgiving with the younger DS and family in SC, especially to see the youngest 2 DGDs, ages 2 & 12, then home for the surgery and Christmas Holidays.
