Wow! These are impressive.

What kind of sewing machine do you use?

I love the horses!

Thank you so much! My machine is a six-needle Brother PR-620.

ohh and remember to use such fabric that the needles don't easily puncture through! or just put a second layer of fabric to the folding point! happy knitting Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / wider flap for my big calves on: January 31, 2014 09:54:33 AM
I'm a girly girl, so my calves are HUGE. WEEEELLL. Now I've gone and done it LOL
I bought these awesome boots, but my feet would not fit. So after consulting a shoe smith (hehehe I'm Finnish. what's the word? Cheesy) she said that I just needed a wider flap and I could use my local *shoesmith* to make them all better, she said her pay would be 50 euros. She is too far away for me to use. So since I don't trust any *shoesmiths* in my area, I decided to do it myself :DDDDDDD

Happy as a clam, I am!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / DIY needle stopper on: January 17, 2014 01:10:03 AM
this is so amazing i need to share. i thought this might be the best place for it, if not move it.

so i've been looking for good needle stoppers for ages. my works tend to unravel everytime i take them with me, no matter how careful i try to be with them. so when i saw this online i had to try it. i can't believe i didn't hear about this before 2013, it's so simple!

all you need is two pieces of fabric cut rectangularly and a piece of rubberband. i cut mine a little bit too long for this tutorial.



you new the rubberband in the middle of the two rectangulars like so



then you fold over the rectangulars. SO SIMPLE! and fast to do! and costs next to nothing Smiley i'm in love! all my stitches have been securely set on my needles since i've started using this Smiley





here's an action picture

Stitch Era announced in the early 2013 that they will stop the free software all together, so by september i bought a new program. I bought the DrawStitch machine embroidery software, it communicates with CorelDraw. It has its downsides, but it's a great program for the small price of 1300 euros!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Clara from Doctor Who + PDF printable on: December 20, 2013 11:20:57 AM
So I made this tutorial again, in Finnish. I googled a picture of Clara from DW and drew a black and white stencil-picture of it and made it into vectors in Illustrator. I adjusted the design a little bit when cutting, so that the stencil would be in one piece and I didn't really need to place the face and hair glee bits.. I also gave the PDF to download http://susitaika.com/tiedostot/clara.pdf





And here is the link for the tutorial:

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / an adorment for horses tail made with reflective fabric stars on: December 06, 2013 11:55:50 AM
So here's a tutorial for this ingenious craft! i saw one online and had to make a few. had to share the tutorial for the world. the original one i saw online was just a tape around a horses tail and three strips that hung from it, but after a lot of thought i decided to make one that works better: it's held in two places, so there's no fear of it hitting the horse at any point and it's secured in two places with velcro, so it doesn't fall off!







the tutorial is in finnish, but there is lots of pictures, so i hope you'll enjoy, and atleast get some ideas!! Smiley

http://susitaika.com/Blogi/?p=268

The most important notes are:
1. the upper strap is good to be placed as shown in the tutorial, so that it is easier to put in place
2. remember to put the soft velcro inside the strap as it can possibly come in contact with the horses skin, so it really shouldn't be the rough velcro that is against your horses skin. it's tender inder the tail!

i actually don't have anything else to say about this. just: happy crafting!! Smiley enjoy
