that was totally worth all the aggravation then, wasn't it?  the dress looks gorgeous! I love how you guys did the back, too.

That is truly amazing!  I *echo*echo* the superb irony of this.  I love the fabric, it's a nice, bright contrast to the Glock!  (and thanks to whomever-sorry, didn't get the name-it was who posted the link to the fabrics!).  Kudos to all my not-scary-fellow-American women out there for packing iron (and loving it).  Even if we'll never shoot at anything we can drag home to feed the kiddies, it's just as enjoyable as shooting a bow!  Grin

I'll have to ask my hubby if we can make pretty our guns & rifles..and maybe even the bows!  Wink

i mostly said it for your behalf batgirl - as long as i can't see INTO their mouth (eww!!), i don't mind a bit of mess! Grin

linda, i might have read it here even! i was hanging around in the machine embroidery boards a bit too!

stefferoni, what's the thread cassette that your SE270D has? i've totally been checking out free patterns, and stuff, and now that i have the PE Design Lite, i can download them and use them!

and yep, .pes format! i'm scared to try rehooping too.... there's a lace design that i want to embroider SO BAD, but the women at the brother dealer said lace is the hardest to rehoop... Undecided

this is the thread cassette I'm talking about:

I do have about 4,000+ designs I've collected through the years, though.  Grin  That involves a LOT of online hours looking for freebies & some I've bought, too.  I don't have the PE Design, but Embird probably works the same as that (though Embird supports other format, too, in case I decided to buy a non-Brother one).

I have never done lace!  Frankly, I'm rather intimidated by it...wait are you talking about those free-standing lace bowls & whatnot??

Congratulations, first off! 

I've had the Brother SE270D for a few years now & I still love it.  I looked at the SE-350 & pretty much, seems like everything's the same, except for my SE270D has that thread cassette.  I embroider on a pretty regular basis.  Most of the people who order diaper bags for me like the personalized monorgram or names, etc..I have the Embird digitizing software & got some alphabets & bought a bunch of designs over the years..there's a lot of freebie sites out there!  (I got the Ultimate Box from Vikant..and able to load a total of 400,000 stiches in it..I love that!)

Does this machine use the .pes format, too? 

I've actually only done rehooping a few times (a design just didn't look right when I resized it from 5x7)..and it took a couple of tried to get it perfect, but I'm not as nervous about it now as much as before.

Good luck on your machine..and may you have years & years of enjoyment ahead of you!

take care,

they do sell them pre-made & they are nice & stiff....


...buuuuut they're too pricey for me!  like most of the other ladies here, i also use plastic canvas more than anything.  they're pretty cheap..if you have a walmart close by, they're about $.24/piece or $1.99 for a pack of 10...and i can get 3 purses out of a sheet.  i always sew them to a piece of muslin & sew them to the corners of the purses (like if you do a jordy, the seam allowance part).
