2 of 6 done!

I'm embroidering 6 handkerchiefs for our wedding. One for me, FI, and each of our parents. This is what they look like unembroidered:<img>http://tinyurl.com/lwdyxa&lt;/img&gt;This is what it looks like with the pattern I made ironed on:<img>http://tinyurl.com/nvpcuk&lt;/img&gt;And this is what it looks like finished:<img>http://tinyurl.com/lyzej4&lt;/img&gt;I haven't ironed on the patterns yet for our parents. The "6 of Clubs" is our lucky card, so I am putting the 4 clubs on the ones for our parents right side up, and the 2 on ours upside down--just like the playing card. I did ours in blue stiching so it can be my "something blue"--FMIL got a purple dress, so I'll do the IL's in purple, and once my mom gets her dress, I'll do my parents' in that color.
Yay! Finally able to update my signature :)

    These are great! How did you create the iron on pattern?

    spuccio: I used that t-shirt iron-on transfer stuff that they sell at the fabric store.  I made the design in microsoft word, then printed it in reverse using a regular inkjet printer (make sure to print it in reverse--otherwise the letters will all be backwards).  I ironed them on the handkerchiefs and then used a 4'' embroidery hoop & embroidery floss.  For the bigger font I used 2 strands of floss (it comes with 6 strands twisted together--I just pulled it apart), and for the smaller font I just used 1 strand of floss.  Voila!  :)

    I'm inspired. I bought a hoop, floss, and a book of iron on patterns at the craft store yesterday :-) Thanks for the help!
