I made these up today for me and my kiddos.
ALL of them were done entirely in the embroidery hoop...yup, zipper too!

The bird on denim is for me...the other two are lunch money pouches for my kiddos complete with clip to attach to their backpack or belt loop.

Beautiful Work! They look professional... What do you mean; done in the hoop? On the sewing machine, right?

I have an embroidery machine....I digitized a design for these so that the entire bag, including zipper, is made in the embroidery hoop.....it quilts the fabrics, sews down the panels, adds the backing, serges the edges....so instead of sitting at the sewing machine, pinning, changing feet, lining up edges, etc....I just push a button and the whole thing sews itself....I just change the thread when the colors need changing, per design.

Wow, you did a great job!  I've done "in-the-hoop" projects before but I've never attempted to make one myself.  Well done!  May I ask what embrodery software you use?  The pouches are awesome by the way!

Very nice pouches - I like yours the best:). I'd also like to know: what kind of machine do you have that turns fabric so that it sews sides together and a zipper in the middle? Sounds like a wonder! Never heard of something like that! how do you do that? I'd love to know more! Not that I could buy such a monster but I can watch and learn, right? Grin

Veri, the machine would be an embroidery machine and it doesn't turn the project.  You just sew it in steps inside out and the turn it yourself after it is complete.  The trick is to know the steps and to digitize the pattern.  This trick, I do not know, lol.  I have sewn "in-the-hoop" projects before and I'm always fascinated that someone was able to figure out all the steps required to make it work, like magic!

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply....Christmas orders always consume me towards the end of the year.

I have a Brother Ult2003D....largest hoop is 6 x 10.

I use Embird to digitize my items.

The key to creating/digitizing in the hoop designs is knowing how to manually sew them first.....then "seeing" inside out, so to speak.

The design was created so that it attached the zipper first, then quilted the front panels and added the design.....then I add the backing fabric.....if I want the backing quilted, I would do that in a seperate hooping...splitting the design into 2 parts.

Lastly, it sews it all together and finished/serges the edges......then I remove from hoop, trim, turn right side out and done!

On my machine, when I sew, I have to change zipper feet, regular feet, then sew item, bring to serger to finish edges, etc......by designing the embroidery machine to do it, I eliminated all the machines, foot changes and precise cutting of fabrics.

Ahaaaa! Now I get it - thank you! The key info that I was missing was that you have a seperate piece of fabric for the backing. When I sew pouches I usually just use one piece that I fold on the bottom edge. Now it makes all the sence, thank you so much!
I have Bernina Aurora 440 QE but I don't have the embroidery unit. I chose this model because I wanted to have the option of adding an embroidery unit later (it's cheaper and takes less space if it's just one machine that does both...) So now I'm still in my "learning" fase and in a few years I hope I'll be able to try something out practically Smiley.

Tank you so much - I have never heard of something like that and I really like it! The only think that bothers me is that this way you probably use more fabric than in a normal "handmade" way (due to the fact that it has to be in the hoop).
