whoa! i'm impressed that these look this fab with all your problems. and i know about problems, believe me! i'm addicted to FSL so i make the UT designs constantly and always just try to step into another room while the machine is stitching Cheesy the best thing that ever happened to me FSL wise is when a friend of mine, who owns a shop where she sells embroidery machines among other things, showed me a water solvant fabric-like stabilizer. the solvy i had used before was kinda like plastic:

so it would tear easily while making FSL and would need atleast two layers of it (and it is not cheap!!). so that was the best way i've found to make FSL without so much heart ache. Smiley

I've been using a sort of woven type, like solvy but not film and it's still evil evil evil.

i just made FSL spider webs from UT designs, i made 4 at a time - so two of them broke.. they did stitch out "normally", some of the stitches just went to the wrong places Cheesy well, this time i fixed it by stitching it up with my sewing machine. HA! I WON!

The wings are wonderful. I will be doing my first FSL very soon. I will make two chokers and masks from UT. Well I am going to try! There may be a lot of Yankee swearing here  Grin The parent site to UT is Embroidery Library (emblibrary.com) and they have the greatest tutorials. The say to use a 'sharp' needle and they use Sulky Ultra Solvy. I'm nervous about making my own bobins as I always use pre-wound. I got the needles off Ebay I think. they are made by the Organ Needle Company.


I sew and do machine embroidery. At this stage of life, I try to keep things simple.
