See what you can create by using your imagination.

I have a very good friend, Carina, and she is also a colleague of mine. She is a really talented tailor, and she is sewing most of her outfits herself. See how she has embroidered an accessory to enhance her outfit. It does consist of several free standing embroideries from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection # 217, “Precious Crochet”.

I think it looks fantastic! don’t you think so too?

The embroideries are sewn on water soluble stabiliser and she has used 30 weight cotton threads in both top and bobbin.  I would also recommend using an Inspira Top Stitch Needle size 75, which has got the larger eye. Carina used three different designs from the collection and then stitched them together with a small zig zag after arranging them in a nice way.

Another way to do the same thing is to combine several embroidery designs by using the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 4D™ or 5D™ Embroidery Software. I have made a combination for a Necklace and will stitch it out as one embroidery. You can see that the designs are slightly on top each other, that means they are stitched together nicely and I do not need to sew them afterwards.

I found one small embroidered crochet design that I had done earlier, so you can see how it looks when it’s a separate embroidery.

Today I will cut out a new dress, in a super cool fabric. It is a nice wool. My plan is to sew it during the weekend.

Happy Sewing!
