because, really, the ones i've made before are just dabbling with the embroidery software. now that i've used it for quite some time and have seen how embroideries are made (ie. i've purchased MANY from the fantabulous Urban Threads and watched when they embroider themselves, baffled at the complexity..) i'm finally ready to make some amazing stuff myself.
this. is. awesome!
you shouldn't toot your own horn, but really, come on, this is the coolest thing i've EVER made!
i started out with drawing a fairie. yes, i love them. yes, i've wanted to make something like this since i got my machine. so shoot me!
ps. really need to get me some better felt tip pens.....
after a few hours of digitizing, hand and back ache, i had that!
and then i had to wait ONE HOUR for it to stitch itself!
i loved seeing something I MADE on the screen of my embroidery machine.. ohhh!
sorry, you're not gonna get the whole picture just yet! something went wrong when i embroidered it out, and some of it came out a bit wonky. the fabric shifted during..
(( well, the outcome is amazing in any case and i just needed to share!!
and comments and critisism welcome, although you can't really properly do it until i get it stitched out fully and can show you the whole picture
ohh! and stats: it takes about an hour, it has 8 colors, 8 color changes, stitch count 35639, size 241*187mm
