Does any one use this machine at all? I am thinking of purchasing one for a nice cheap price (normally about $3000 and I'm getting it for $700) , but I'd like to know more about it prior to buying it. It is an old machine and I am having a hard time locating the appropriate software for the machine (pc designer?). I want to design my own embroidary for it, which is why I need the software, but is it a wise purchase if the accessories are kind of hard to come by? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This was a project a friend wanted me to do for her. She drives an old VW and goes to a lot of car shows, so she wanted a purse to show her s#*t off even more. It was an enormous pain to make, who knew round things would be so hard to sew?! The hubcap is actually bolted on to the purse. The outside of the purse is duck cloth, a heavy canvas, and the inside is some nice patterned cotton. What do you think? Sorry about some of the blurry pictures.
Alright, I've never had a penpal, but would like to. I've encouraged my daughters to have one, and figure I should quit living vicariously through them. My name is Jackee, I'm a 29 year old house mom/painter/craftster. My husband is a professional tattooer in Uptown Minneapolis, and I am fully covered in tattoos (arm and leg sleeves, etc.). So, that is a big part of my life, thus art in general being a big part of my life. I have a 10 year old of my own, who is a punky little gal (pink and purple hair) and a 10 year old step daughter who is more the black wearing type gal (dare I say dark sider?). I love this forum. I love crafty projects. Ummmm, I travel a lot, mostly for tattoo conventions, and would love to meet people around the states and Western Europe (it would be fun to have people to visit). So, hopefully I will here from someone.
You did a really nice job on it. Good shading. The only thing I see is that the fingers look a little bit short. It's so hard to get the perspective on thing like that though. It really is done well otherwise. I hope you don't mind the critique, I just figured I'd tell you my take.
I did this painting for my husband for our anniversary. Call me a hopeless romantic...just kidding. My husband is sort of a gore fan, so I wanted to do something he would like to hang up, as well as displaying my love for him (thus giving him my heart, granted it's still in my hand). It was done on clay board with oil paint.
