1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Re: VKA embroidered patch + TUTORIAL on: October 08, 2017 11:41:05 AM
this looks super professional! great work and your tute is very well done.

Thank you so much! Smiley I have done embroidery as a profession, so it's great to hear that it looks professional! Smiley And you're too kind Smiley The tutorial needs to be made again, me thinks, but I have so many other tutorials bursting out of me! Like now I'm doing one on making a reflective biking helmet cover, since autumn (and winter!) is so dark. Will be posting that tomorrow, maybe on the "completed projects"-board.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cropped hoodie with lace lining in the hood (tutorial in blog) on: September 06, 2017 09:54:47 AM

The lace hoodie is not my idea, I just found it randomly a few years back, when it was "in fashion". I wanted to make a goth-style hooded crop top to wear to the gym. The wicked embroidery is designed by Urban Threads, and the pattern is from Joka tyypin kaavakirja, which I think is only in English. The lace came to mind, because I just joined Annika Victoria's Facebook group Make Thrift Buy Community Challenges, and the challenge of the month of August was using lace in a design.

You can read more, and get the tutorial at my website: http://stitchesandcuts.com/index.php?route=journal2/blog/post&journal_blog_post_id=39

You can also just go and watch the video I made about this project, it's on Youtube: https://youtu.be/phFYIRnSHQE

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is it Ok to buy $400 machine with zero experience in sewing? on: May 11, 2017 02:26:29 AM
I would go (and did so) to the nearest reputable sewing machine shop and ask everything from the seller and try out lots of machines. My dealer prompted me to take a project with me, and we sewed my own project with her, using the two sewing machines I was trying to decide between.

Thank you! Smiley
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted scoodie on: April 21, 2017 04:46:02 AM

This knitted scoodie took me over a year to complite!  I thought I would tell anyone trying to make this scoodie, that you actually can knit the two parts on their own, and then knit them together after you have enough. The directions suggest you knit 96 cm (37,8 inch) of the scarf part until you start making the hood part. I have knitted a bit more by mistake, since it really started to be fast to knit after I started knitting the scarf parts one at a time! Next part will be attaching the two scarves together and starting to knit the hood part. 

Here's the first "Making Of"-video https://youtu.be/e6_VUNngxvA

Here's the knitting of the hood-part: https://youtu.be/NwV78nRNyt8

The moral of the story is, if something feels bad for you, don't do it. I really should have started knitting it one scarf at a time a LONG time ago! I really do think it would have been ready by now. The scarf pattern is quite easy to knit once you wrap your head around it, but it's not so easy when you have two pieces to make at the same time - at least not for my brain! Knitting is supposed to be a relaxing hobby that gives you results. This project has been really difficult for me, a boogieman in the project bag, I didn't want to think about it since making it was so painful. But now it is finally finished!

This is the final product: https://youtu.be/jxFISFCZBs8

It's awesome when you make something that the gift receiver loves Smiley

Thank you everyone! Smiley Yeah, I love that the embroidery is made BY ME. I'd love it even more if it were also drawn by me, but since I made it for our household and not for sale, that's quite OK. I'd love to learn how to draw circuits etc... Smiley
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / VKA embroidered patch + TUTORIAL on: April 21, 2017 02:02:17 AM
I love Veronica Varlow, and the idea of Veronica's Kissing Army. So again, I made a patch on VKA. I have made one before, but can't find a picture of it. This time I made it with lips that are being bitten, so when I started digitizing on top of a photograph, I knew that it COULD go horribly wrong. Thankfully it didn't and I have an embroidery to prove it. The VKA badge is a free download http://stitchesandcuts.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=95&product_id=317

Here is the tutorial on embroidering a patch: https://youtu.be/YwXxFf1oCqk
