The new HUSQVARNA VIKING® Texture Hoop , (#920225096) is a fun and very out of the box sewing tool! It is perfect for a person like me as I like things to be unique and out of the ordinary- nothing boring for me!
This weekend I will be teaching how to use the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Texture Hoop at a dealer event. We are going to sew a mini bag (please see the image below/beside), and decorate the little bag with a Texture Hoop design. The design we will use is from the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection 213, “Flowers and Ribbons”. If you would like to sew it yourself you can find the sewing instructions for the mini bag here .
But I also needed some accessories and yesterday I cut the pieces to the kit; fabrics, a stabiliser and a piece of organza. To create textures, I also brought the new Inspira Ribbon Kit, both in Bright colors and in Neutral colors along with yarn, ribbons and wool.
Several projects have been created at our office since we first started to work with the Texture Hoop. I have added a few of my favourites here, and I can assure that only your imagination can set the limits for what you can create.
There are several tips on how to use the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Texture Hoop.
Below you can find a few of them:
• Trace/transfer the design to the included template using a template marker, or print a copy of the design from the PDF and place the inner hoop directly on the copied design. Line up the inner hoop with the center lines which is number 8 both horizontally and vertically, and place the ribbons/yarns according to the lines of the printed design.
• Secure each ribbon/yarn with a clip. Then add the outer hoop, slide it under the fabric and stabiliser.
• If you add a lot of yarn, do also add a layer of water soluble stabiliser on top of the hooped fabric to prevent the presser foot for getting caught under the embellishments.
Until next week, Happy Sewing!
