I'm not sure if is correct to post it here since it's machine embroidery...anyway, this was my first "big" try with the new sewing machine, which has an embroidery unit, and a software to edit images and embroideries.
When I started to sew with the old machine one year ago I would never tell that I could do something like this one day, so, you have to understand, I'm amazed!  Cheesy

I'm amazed too! That's so cool! Now I'm thinking of all the awesome things you can do with a machine like that..... hmmm.. what kind do you have? I think I want one....
Did you create the pattern? I dont even know how it works, I'd love to find out!

That is very very cool!  Can you really get a regular sewing machine that does that, or is it a special embroidery machine?  You should set up a little business.  There are a couple of islands in some of the local malls that embroider stuff on hats while you wait.  They must make a killing, there are always tons of people there.  Thanks for sharing!

Hey thank you!  Cheesy
Let's see...I have a Brother sewing machine, it should be the super ACE e model, it's an electronic type, the one with the led display etc...ok, I've found this on the italian site, though I don't know if they sell the same products in all the countries:

This is a "normal" sewing machine (even if it has some plus features more than my old mechanical one), but you can mount on it an embroidery unit (sold separately), that let you make embroideries from the designs incorporated in the machine, or from the memory cards (sold separately). You can also buy (no news here...all to buy buy buy!) a software that let you create patterns embroidery from most images and designs and even from your own created images or designs. That is the most powerful and awesome thing.

There are many sewing/embroidery machines over the market, as far as I know, also Huskvarna does great machines, but all the major brands carry at least one model similar to this, I think. The bad news are, you maybe supposed yet, that they're not cheap machines, with prizes that vary from 2.000 to 5.000 euros (and not the professional ones! we are talking of home embroidery here). Don't know the exct prize of mine cause it was a gift (a big gift actually! whoa).

I created this one from a pattern utility incorportated in the software, that lets you create a face selecting among different type of eyes, eyebrows, noses, mouths, hairs, carnations, ecc. Very easy and exciting too  Wink
But lately I also started triyng with other patterns, created from original designs (that is more difficult, cause you have to create your own pattern alone).
For the business, I'm thinking about it more and more frequently, so I hope to launch my little idea soon!

Thanks again for your feedback, ciao! Cheesy
