Linnea 18, (Simon’s girlfriend) has been using a old denim jeans that has been worn out, to create a denim jacket and a denim vest. She mixed black and blue denim, and used the same denim jacket pattern for the two garments.

Another project that is made out of a pair of jeans; is a  trapunto tote bag and it is  created using the new Quilt Block Wizard in the  Husqvarna Viking® Quilt Design Creator™. Watch the video, with Sue Hausmann and Janie Lantz where they talk about this project.

For the new Husqvarna Viking® Mega Endless Hoop- we have created a new design collection, #249 – “Mega Endless Floral” with stylish endless flowers and some are even made to match sideways so that you can create an allover fabric embroidery.

The designs can of course also be sewn out using the Husqvarna Viking® Designer Crown Hoop 260 x 200, or the Husqvarna Viking® Designer Royal Hoop: 360 x 200mm. You will need to work more with the Design Position feature if you want to create them as endless embroideries.

Happy Sewing!

I am “sew” very happy to introduce the new Sew Fun! blog. A real blog in all senses. Now we can interact much more! A big thank you for all your emails asking for the blog! Now it is up and running again.

So, what´s new? There are many new improved functions of the blog, that will make it easier to read and follow! For instance you can search and find different categories, ask questions directly on the blog, and add your own comments.

My hope is that you will find inspiration in different sewing areas.

Since the last blog, I have been in Greece on vacation, and I did sew a bit there too. See my sewing area in the living room. I brought the overlock this year, so I can have the nice finish of the edges on all my projects, that is “sew” neat. I did finish a skirt, and can now concentrate on decorating it with some embroideries. I think I will embroider a lace to finish the edge. I will show you when it is done!

After my vacation, I had three days in the office before traveling to San Antonio, Texas, (the United States). There I did teach classes on how to create one-of-a-kind embroidered greeting cards, using the the new 5D™ Embroidery product, the Husqvarna Viking® 5D™Card Shop.

This is the new Husqvarna® Viking 5D™ Card Shop.

It is available in the dealer stores, and at the

This week we have had internal sewing training in the office. Around forty participants took part in our “Christmas sewing”. We wanted to share how fun it is to sew, being part of this kind of event, and the experience of working on our top of the line products.

The training consisted of three different classes, were we made one project in each class. They could sew Christmas Cards, a bag for the nuts, and a little towel with small Santa’s or flowers. Here are the projects:

Anders came back after the weekend with the finished sweaters and trousers for his sons. First of all congratulations to a job well done! Thanks for sharing, and I am certain the boys will be very happy for their new cool and cosy outfits.


Hope you are finishing your projects for Sew Your Home Holiday Ready- it is still possible to upload your pictures and share your own projects. Keep sending in pictures of your sewing projects at the Sewers Choice section, we will post the pictures at the Sew Your Home Holiday Ready -site on the 22 December.
