Will Cook for Shoes

Since last week I have been in Stockholm for a couple of days, to be attending a layout-software class! I will now be able to create PDF files of my sewing projects with nicer layout etc. It was super cold in Stockholm (felt like Siberia), and a lot of snow. I cant wait for the spring now! How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

I asked the Sewers choice award winner with the fantastic project “Christmas Butterflies”, which was the voted as number one worldwide, if she would be willing to share any of her sewing projects with us, and she was!

So I am delighted to present Claudia Shaw from Florida, USA.

I love this apron, and I love shoes too! Claudia is writing how she created the apron:

“Here is one of the projects I wanted to share. I used the shoe design from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ embroidery software samples, changing the size and colors, and selected the font for the lettering. I printed out templates in order to get the placement the way I wanted it. I cut the fabric for the ruffle, finished one edge of it with a three-thread narrow overlock, and did a rolled hem with a wave stitch on the other edge, then used the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Ruffler attachment to gather it evenly, and applied it to the apron hem and the pocket top. The apron was a Christmas gift for a dear friend who loves to cook, and also loves SHOES!”

Thank you “sew” much Claudia for sharing.

I am working on creating new sewing samples, it is breathtaking with great new features that will be included in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ embroidery software coming later this year! You will love it too.

Until next week - Happy Sewing
