Trifarina, thanks for the fabulous tute!!!

What do you typically do with your patches?  Any tips for attaching them (how to sew them on, etc) to other fabric?

I've been kind of lazy with the final presentation so far...  I gave a few away as is, just patches.
(one of those was framed by the recipient)
I've sewn some on pre-made tote bags.  Those I just quickly tacked on with overcast/whipstitch in matching black floss.   I did the same with one on a premade pillow cover.

If you wanted to look punk it would be easy to tack them on an article of clothing with massive safety pins.  Then you could also take it off before laundering.

Your satin stitches turned out so nice! I tend to be really lame when it comes to that.

those are great.  I am going to have to try the separating of the strands so they lay flat...

You are fabulous, Trifarina! Thanks for the tute. I have so many little spools of DMC at home and was not sure what to do with them...

These are really cool! Thanks for posting this.

It really does make a difference to separate out the strands before you stitch with embroidery floss.  I was in a hurry once and tried to use it as one piece, and there's no comparison in the finished product.  Incidentally, it's really easy to separate the strands if you cut your piece, then pull them from the end. The rest of them will bunch up at first, but don't usually knot up (no matter how bad it looks while you're pulling out the strand).  It works much better than trying to separate out by pulling from the middle (where you get knots on both sides that don't relax back into shape).

I found this while looking for something to do with the new "Light Effects" floss from DMC (no affiliation, just think they're spiffy).  This gives me a good reason to ask for lots of the new variegated floss colors for Christmas (or buy them now to make stuff for Christmas.)   Smiley   



Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
