I love all the cool machine embroidery patterns around nowadays but I already have like 30 sweaters and hoodies. Can anyone think of a way to make interchangable patches? That way I could just use one sweater or hoodie (aline skirt even!) and change the design to my ever changing mood. Velcro would be too bulky I think.
Wow! Thanks for all of your awesome comments! All of them are based on vintage patterns or vintage dresses in one of my many old catalogs. I have the Patternmaster software from Wildginger.com I just design them and them print them out in my size.
The green fabric is actually Halloween fabric! I liked it because it was all swirly and made me think of Nightmare before xmas.
I guess I am lucky, my friends and co-workers are AMAZED that I make my own clothes. They seem a little envious really. I sew because I am really hard to fit and I love vintage. It is a great feeling to see a dress on Ebay , or in an old catalog and be able to make it up in your own size.
What do people who don't have the compulsion to make thing do with their spare time anyway?
