The Serenity Prayer

Pin It

I am looking forward to a New Year and my hope is it will give us all a new beginning.  The Serenity Prayer keeps coming to mind so I thought it might be time to share the words with you!

I have made this prayer into a machine embroidery.
It was pretty easy with my Singer Futura. Everything was built in!
The download is at this link and it is in FHE format. If you need another format let me know! Happy New Year!

2216-BTS-Neck_Pillows-1There are several new sewing projects posted on Sew4Fun.com. I really liked the neck pillow and the Christmas in July star ornament. I have posted links to them on my project page.  Look toward the bottom of the list for the neck pillow link. I am definitely making these as Christmas gifts. First I am making one for me.

Copy of GERALD9I recently posted pictures from past Summer and family vacations at my Gallery page. The good, bad and the ugly is all there. See pictures of me at the beach as a little girl with my brother and mom. Look, I was topless. I think my dad was taking the picture. Those were the days. Everyone who grew up on Delmarva enjoyed fun in the sun. Now we have so many tourist I wait till the Fall or Spring to dip my toes. Hope you are having a great Summer.

Pin It

corner2_fhe corner3_jef flower2_jefI have created a lace pocket using the Singer Futura auto punch and advanced editing .  Designs for a lace pocket and a floral lace pocket were saved in  FHE format for the Singer Futura.  Click on the pictures to download these designs for free.  A 3 part video on how to create a lace pocket in the Singer Futura using auto punch and editing was also made. Here is video #1, #2, and #3.  Lace pocket designs can be used with monograms and embroidery combinations or you can use it as a simple lace pocket. Lace pocket measures about 4″. Embroider the pocket on a white or colored organza with a wash away stabilizer. Trim the organza to the satin stitch edge.

Multi-hoop using the Singer Futura

Pin It

monogrambagHere are some hints when using the Futura multi-hoop technique.

Recently I was practicing multi-hooping for an upcoming class and would like to pass along some hints I discovered while doing multi-hooping.  Multi-hooping is used with designs that are bigger then the large hoop which is about 6″ X 10″.  The total hooping area of each hoop is a little smaller, but each design can measure approximately 9 1/2? X 18?.

The picture of the purse is a project Singer had posted a few years ago on multi-hooping. It is a great exercise to use when trying multi-hooping.

The  Singer Futura now has a positioning feature for perfect placement of your large embroidery.  In the software program,SULKY661-20 under tools, you can set your parameters to align a single large hoop and multi-hooping.  If your design is larger than one hooping, the software will split the design into multi-hoops and aid you in re alignment of the multi-hoopings. Make sure you read my Futura multi-hoop article and watch the video!

My hints are to use a stabilizer like “Fuse and Tear” or “Sulky Totally Stable” for most items that do not have to be reversible. I am stocking 20″ wide “Totally Stable”. The stabilizer can be a temporary fuseomni 15. It will cover the back of the whole design.

Another tip is to mark the right side of the fabric very accurately. I used a 15″ square Omni-grid ruler so I could make sure everything was square when I marked the X and Y and center axis. When you hoop, make sure the marked line is inside the hoop limits.

Multi-hooping is the best way to get perfect alignment. The last tip is to place your embroidery in the hoop using a grid and zoom so you can plan the split to you best advantage.
