X_x; Sorry if this is in the wrong..board..I've been I guess, watching and reading stuff from Craftster for awhile now, but had no reason to post because my stuff is so crappy Tongue so..yeah, this is m'first post, and I was wondering..sorry if its a dumb question, but exactly how does embroidering work? I mean, i've never looked at it closely, but is it a lot of work? or is it just like, a huge thick chunk of embroidery-stuff slapped on something? I was going to buy this on ebay today, but realized someone probably made it and it isn't real band-merchandise and yeah. If someone did make it, couldn't i make it?

I'm far from an expert on embroidery, but that looks too intricate to be done by hand. There are sewing machines out now that you can program to do that stuff for you. I'd love to have one but they're so expensive.

i work with sewing machines and i'd bet money that hat was done by machine! it look far too fine and precise.

you could do it by hand, it would be really straightforward. check out www.sublimestitching.com for some funky inspiration  Grin

It looks incredibly neat and precise so it might have been done by machine, but it would be easy enough to replicate it with hand embroidery.  You'll need to find instructions with pictures online or a book (libraries are a beautiful thing) b/c it's too hard to give instructions without illustrations.
Basically, though, you'll trace the pattern and cover it with a satin stitch, which isn't too difficult.  
I don't think embroidery is too time consuming.  It's worth it, and it's very portable!

You could always just hand paint embroidery designs--there are lots of fun transfer patterns available.  Or you can combine painting with embroidery details like on this pillow (sorry, the link won't be available long)
