I wanted to show off a little the 'summer' mug rug and peacock feather-tip earrings I made for a swap I'm in.  But I can't figure out how to upload a photo.  The 'attachment' (paperclip) button only adds a link :{

Wicked Tip: Embroidery On Leather

Posted by Laura L Smith on January 30, 2015 at 9:20am 0 Comments

1.  Hoop a piece of cut-away on top and then carefully cut a 'window' for embroidery - this is to eliminate hoop marks.  

2.  Some people favor a sharp needle while other prefer sharp or wedge needles (WEDGE NEEDLE: needle manufacturers tell advise that this needle point    type is recommended only for sewing leather - not for embroidery) ; and some like Teflon. Teflon helps prevent…

  1. Hoop the garment, as you would for regular embroidery. Use the correct backing for the type of garment being sewed on.

  2. Next cut a piece of embroidery foam large enough to cover the design you are sewing. The foam color you use should be as close to the color of the thread you will be stitching over it as possible.

  3. Use tape to secure the foam over the…

I don't remember ever seeing or signing up for this website but now that I have seen it, I will put it on my radar list to check in once in a while for ideas.

I am here

I had forgotten about this part of Shawn's world.  I think everyday life took over and then a month overseas and now setting back into a normal routine.

I hope everyone is embroidering up a storm, I know I have been.   Have the Golden Tapestry hanging on the wall, completed a cutting mat carrying bag and am now making some 3d embroidery cushion covers.  not bad since the 25th June.

Cherry Ward added a discussion to the group Babylock Embroidery Machines

loose tension on top of my embroidery.

Thanks so much for letting me join the group. I have a problem with my embroidery pattern. I have a Babylock Journey. I have been sewing on my machine to finish some projects. When I finished I cleaned my machine and put in an embroidery needle. My pattern starts off fine and then the top thread becomes very loose. I have changed the tension but my machine reacts the same. My instructions tell me to check that the machine is threaded correctly. I have rethreaded it but nothing seems to help.Can…See More
