I am “Sew” Inspired!”
Posted By Lena Kantis On 5 October, 2009 @ 08:02 In Embroidery,Inspiration,Sewing | No Comments
Thank you for all the positive feedback! I appreciate your comments. I have been asked to show a close up on the dress I showed you a few weeks ago. Below you can see a photo of the waistline embroidery.
This week, I went to a fabric trade show is Borås, Sweden. Borås is famous for all textile design, development and textile trading. It was interesting to see the trends of different qualities and colors. It was such a great inspiration and we found several interesting things that can be possible to use for new products and techniques.
When we got back I continued to sew on the overlock machine HUSQVARNA VIKING® HUSKYLOCK™ s25, since I wanted to finish the collar of my tunic from last week. One thing I discovered when I turned on the HUSKYLOCK™ s25 was that it does remember the last stitch I had selected. That is great!
Below you find a few of my best overlock tips:

We are several people here at the office that has been created similar tunics. In the photo you can see Karin, Kerstin and me.
Karin created her tunic without sleeves and added embroideries from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection 165, “Venetian Embroideries ”.
For the collar on my tunic, which I created as a big tube, I used a two-thread wide overlock stitch and I set the differential feed on 2. It gave me a fun shell-look on the edge! Finally, I added a big button with black pearls.
Next week I will be teaching at a dealer event in how to use the Texture Hoop, sew a beautiful design and make a small project out of it. So make sure to check back next week to see the photos.
Until then, Happy Sewing!
