Big Congrats and Silhouette Letter Placement Tutorial

 Hi Everyone:

Happy Sunday.  I decided to play around with my Silhouette Cameo today to make some flour sack towels for a friend's daughter who recently got married and is expecting a baby.  This is not someone I know personally so I am extra excited to surprise her.  I used the Silhouette Brand Heat Transfer Fabric Interfacing which is so easy to use.  I manipulated the design a bunch for the monogram.  But today wanted to share how I used my Silhouette mat as a template for correct letter placement.  After I cut my letters out of fabric and gently pulled them off the impression was left in my mat of the sentiment.  I laid my mat on top of the towel and slid my letters under the mat until they were in the correct place.  I was so happy to have found this trick for getting my letters straight.  Love this Lori Whitlock card too.  So elegant.

This above photo on the right shows the letters a little off so that you can see how I moved them into place and even though my mat is getting pretty aged I could still easily see my words which made placing the letters a snap. I made this set for two challenges, both of which are ironically Anything Goes.

Hugs,
