81  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / skull&text on: October 11, 2008 02:56:55 AM
designed both of the embroideries yesterday, but got the actual shirt finished just now, a few minutes ago.

82  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / black hoodie, white embroideries, yarrrr on: October 11, 2008 02:53:10 AM
someone showed here how to make a hood like this, and i am veeeery thankful for that tip! i always get chilly on the neck, and this should help prevent neck exposure Smiley

as always, i drew a picture of a skull, scanned it and made it into a design.

i should remember to use this during "talk like a pirate day" Cheesy

enjoy! i know i will...

and since you always ask if i don't put it where everyone can see: my machine is Husqvarna Viking Platinum Plus and i use Husqvarna's own program,4D Embroidery System, to digitize things.
83  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / been embroidering all day! skull & biohazard many pics on: October 10, 2008 10:02:09 AM
So I love making things from scratch! That's why I bought an embroidery programme that allows me to do just that. I usually draw a picture I like, and then scan it to the computer. Now I've realized that the program that digitalizes pictures understands pictures better if I modify them a bit with Photoshop before trying to make a design out of them.

The skull kinda failed, but I suspected it would fail a little bit. It did just that. But now I know how to make it better, so it's OK Smiley

and the biohazard:

I put together a page that shows all my embroideries, you can go to it from the link in my signature also, but here's a direct link: http://susitaika.com/ompelu/kirjonta/kirjonta.html
84  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pink embroideries, black bags on: October 05, 2008 11:52:39 PM
so i needed a new bag for school and wanted it to look cool! i went out and bought PINK embroidery yarn and picked a black jean fabric from my stash. i did it in the simplest way possible and am VERY pleased with the result. maybe i should always go for the simplicity....

i also needed a pencil case, because the one i was using was doubleing as a make up purse as well! so it was hard to always be switching the pens and make-ups Cheesy

85  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pants! first time for over a year! on: July 22, 2008 04:32:41 AM
so i got horrified with zippers.. i made like five or so pants, two of which i made with buttons 'cause zippers horrified me. and the zippers were made of metal, so they were uncomfortable and i broke a few needles trying to stich them on properly and neatly. but then something happened a month or so ago: my friend needed her trousers' zipper changed. so i did. and i figured out how to put zippers on correctly AND discovered that plastic zippers actually DO do the trick! (being a jeans person my whole life, i couldn't imagine a plastic zipper)

so i went out and bought a plastic zipper, and now i'm REALLY happy with the results.


and yeh, i got this job, where the manager wants us to wear black trousers, and i've only got black skirts and a pair of blue jeans. so i really HAD TO make this. today is tuesday, and i have the gig on friday. so cudos to me, being really in time! Smiley
86  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tartan + velvet + pvc = heaven on: July 01, 2008 12:02:58 PM
So I have been dying to make a corset-type top since I made a corset with the tute from here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122286.0

I combined a pattern of a top with a corset pattern I drew up with that tute. I didn't want it to be dull, so I used red tartan and black velvet and put lacing to the back. No boning. Then, when I was almost done, I realized that the front looked a bit too spaceous. So in my panic I found a few scraps of PVC from my drawers and just tried to do a desing to the front. It's a bit awkward, but it's OK. So here are the pics:

here's the top from every side on a dressmaking model: http://susitaika.com/ompelu/paidat/005.html

I also made one with a light pink fabric and stretchy satin:

EDIT: the skirt is also made by me, made the same day actually. it can be found here: http://susitaika.com/ompelu/hameet/008.html

and heres a pic:

and a pic of a skirt with the same pattern:
87  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / embroidering everything on: May 08, 2008 12:32:56 PM
Hello. I'm new to crafster, so I can't post pics yet, but links i will give you.

I made three shirts for my cousins, and embroidered things on them. For my girl-cousin I made horses and for the boy a skull-sweater.

i drew the pics, then scanned them to the computer, then made embroideries out of them with the husqvarna 4D embroidery extra -program, then made my Husqvarna Platinum Plus -sewing machine make them.

Now I've updated the links into working ones AGAIN (gotta stop moving them around.. Cheesy) and posted pics Smiley
