Vive Moi!

Wow, my trip to London gave me so much more energy, and inspiration to create more fun sewing. It is amazing to see all wonderful garments in the shops in London. I have gathered a lot of new ideas, which can be great projects. The inspiration came when Karin and I was window shopping walking on Regents Street and Oxford Street. I will definitely use several ideas for my new sewing projects. 

Have you seen the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design collection 221, Raw Edge Letters? It is looking so cool, and can be sewn in several layers to make a very personalised sweater, jeans or what ever you want to add the text on. I have for some time been wondering what to write using them, and did find a nice wording on a t-shirt in London, that I liked. “Vive Moi”, (I Live) and I will sew that on a garment. Vest or jeans, or t-shirt I have not yet made my decision.

Here is an example of what it can look like!

In the office we have had overlock education, and a colleague of mine; Rasmus, made a pair of sweatshirt pants. What was extra fun with the trousers was the text on the back of them; HUNK. Fun, don’t you think!? You have an option to use one or two layers for the appliqués. Rasmus used one layer and where it could have been a second layer, he stitched the outline with a metallic thread. 


Have fun and enjoy your sewing!

Best wishes
