Title: Heart and Dagger Hoodie
Post by: Early Bird Special on January 05, 2009 03:04:51 PM
My friend Susan asked me to embroider a hoodie she purchased for her niece's Christmas gift, and I was happy to help!





Honestly, this project took a little bit longer than I had anticipated. I think it was because I had such a small area to work in, since it was on the sleeve. Also, since this was on colored material, I decided to fill in the design, which is not something I normally do. The dagger is worked in satin stitch, and the heart is worked in split stitch, and it is all outlined with a black back stitch. I'd say it took about 5 to 6 hours.

In the end though, the extra time was worth it, because the colors really pop on the green fabric, and her niece loves it! I saw her over the weekend, wearing the jacket and she looked super cool.

Feeling inspired? These designs were selected from the Tattoo Your Towels patterns. (http://www.sublimestitching.com/tattoos.html)

Amazing work. The satin stitch must have taken hours! It turned out great. Have you seen her wearing it yet? Bet it's awfully cute on.

Thanks, Jess!

Yes, I saw her wearing it this past weekend.  She looked super cool.  I'll try to get a picture of her modeling it, and post it in the customer gallery.   ;)
