Make more use of your embroidery designs!

To decorate your garment with embroideries, when you sewing a new jacket for instance, you can create a super cool personal look. Use any of your favorit embroideries. They can be transformed in so many ways. I wanted to share how I decorated a jacket I made a couple of years ago.

I selected one Flower Design from HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #125 ”Funky Flowers” [1], and I sewed the embroidery on the left side of the jacket. To add more, I wanted to pick some pieces of the embroidery design and add it on the collar as well as below the first embroidery. A template was used to draw some wavy lines with a pictogram pen, and those lines were stitched with a reinforced straight stitch to make the lines more visible. If you are good at drawing you can of course draw a freehand wavy line. Finally I stitched some beads on the embroidery designs, which can be done on the sewing machine, if the hole of the bead is not too small. I did that with only the sewing machine needle, not using any presser foot. You can use tweezers to hold the bead.

Edit any of your favorit embroidery designs by using the possibility in HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Embroidery Extra and select the pieces you need. I prefer to use the polygon select as it’s really easy to use.

The pictures are showing the left and right side of the collar and the left front of the jacket. Finally I also embroidered my name inside the jacket.

Kerstin is expecting a new grandchild (her second), and she has been preparing a lot the last weeks. In Sweden the most common thing is that we don’t find out beforehand if it is a boy or a girl. We prefer to be surprised. So therefore Kerstin does not know if she will get a grandson or a granddaughter, well how can she prepare then? Here is a sample of what she has done. One pink and one light blue hat. Only one of them will be used by the new baby!

Happy Sewing!
