Peace, Love and KnK

Only a few of you will remember the lead male star of “The Partridge Family”, and know that the correct title for this post should be:  Peace, Love, and Bobby Sherman.  But while Peace and Love are still strong contenders in my life, Bobby is not.  I’ve given up mooning about him, and moved on to something that can actually fulfill my dreams, my KnK Maxx!

 

When my daughter arrived home from school and informed me that next week was “Peace Week”, I just whipped out the KnK design software and made her a Peace shirt in her fave colors.  She picked out the fabric for the applique, and I got to play with the fabric blade and some double sided repositionable fusible web (I used Steam-a-Seam).  It was so easy, she had her Peace shirt ready to wear the next day.  But don’t expect it to stand up to repeated washing!  In order to do that, you’ll have to get out the sewing machine and stitch around the pieces (I used small zig zag stitch spaced very close together).

 And while I was at it, I had to make a little Love, too.

Sorry Bobby, nothing for you.
