Same, same but different.

I am certain that each person have got their own preferences when it comes to colors.We all have our own favorits, don’t you think? I have one color that I love more than any other and that is turquoise. Every time I can find a fabric in that color I start to plan and think of a suitable project to use it for.

Let me show you the difference. At a sales company meeting here in Jönköping, we all got a white shirt to decorate in our own personal way. Ingrid my colleague, created a beautiful embroidery using designs that are included with the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Designer Diamond™ sewing and embroidery machine. She used plenty of colors, in fact I think it is the colors suggested to use for these embroideries.

I liked the embroideries very much, so I asked her if she would mind to let me use the same combination, but in another way. I selected to use colors in gold, beige, white and sand.
To be able to sew the embroideries on the yoke of the blouse we opened the side seams of the blouse.  Some of the embroideries are using the special technique, Thread Velvet.

If you want to try Thread Velvet, we have several embroidery collections are using this technique. The newest is the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection# 224 Thread Velvet Décor. Six beautiful embroideries made for HUSQVARNA VIKING® Majestic Hoop.

Happy Sewing!
