If they already used a stabilizer, then the sewing part shouldn't be too difficult. I usually try to make sure the embroidered piece as 'thick' as the other fabric I'm using, but you'll have to experiment a bit with that. If you're experienced at sewing it shouldn't be much of a problem.

I have no idea about prices ... but $100 sounds like a LOT to me. Obviously you'll spend time on it and you'll have to invest in nice fabrics and a good sewing machine .. those pillows have to be very special pillows if they want to pay that much for it.  Shocked

Are you sure it's that much per item?

Yes, Trapunto is the only thing I can think of.

Here's an example of trapunto that I found through google:

Could it be bobbin lace? Bobbin lace is made by weaving thread around pins.

For big projects, yes. And I mainly do big projects.

Except when the fabric's stiff enough, like this project on linen I'm doing. I'm not using a hoop for that one.

I'm going to learn that soon ... I'm learning to be a needlework designer, so I have to learn that, too. My teacher said it was hard though .. good luck! I'm looking forwards to see some of your works!

I switched my Big Project ... my new big project is a sampler for my dad's 50th birthday on December 30.

It's from a Cross Stitch Collection from this summer.

Progress so far:

I don't have a pic of how it's supposed to look like when it's completed, but the rooster will have a tail and it will be sitting on a fence, surrounded by small pictures of a pig, cow, cat etc. in sepia.

That one's really cool!  Cheesy Obviously you can still join.

I packed my big project so I can't work on it. I first have to do another project for my dad's 50th birthday, it needs to be finished by the end of December. It's a Country Life sampler from Cross Stitch Collection, of last summer. I'll take a pic of the progress as soon as I've found my cam  Embarrassed

Your stitches look very professional and you have a great sense of humour  Cheesy

I was tested for gluten intolerance a few months ago, but luckily it was negative. I mean... gluten is in almost everything! I did find out I have Crohn's disease, but at least I don't have to think about everything I eat.

Gluten is EVIL would be even a better slogan! I'd love to see it when it's finished!

Oh, that is so pretty! Smiley

One eensy little criticism: It looks like some of your crosses are going one way and some the other, i.e. it looks like on some stitches, the top of the cross goes this way / and on others it goes this way \.  They should all go the same way.  But it could just be my eyes  Undecided

You have great eyes, then. I can't see which way they're going...  then again I have glasses and everything. And it's never wrong to give constructive criticism, is it?

It looks very good, especially for a first cross stitch. I like the pattern and the colours.
