I have updated the post! Using any embroidery machine you can embroider a sectional belt easily. I have loaded 3 autopunch designs you are welcome to try. The designs are .jef and .pes and you can download them by clicking on the picture. The clip art used made the autopunch software perfect for the formation of my designs. I used the Singer Futura and the Stitch N Sew software to create with. To see how auto punch works view the process here.
To embroider the designs and construct the belts, pick a background fabric that has some body. Use denim, canvas, or sandwich a fusible fleece in between to pieces of broadcloth. This heavier fabric will give your sections a rigid body. Trim each embroidery to the edges. Mend the embroidery together to create enough width to fit your waist. The multi zig-zag stitch or the feather stitch will work well. To finish tack a cord to each edge so you can tie your belt in place or velcro an overlap. You can also make a buttonhole and button as a closure. Hook and eyes will work too. Check out the buttons and fastener at your local fabric store for other finishing ideas.
Remember I have not always stitched out every embroidery so test the designs before committing them to a garment.
I love the Fall time of year. I love the textures and colors. I saw the leaf applique picture and was inspired to make an embroidery that would create the look of Fall to almost anything from purses to hems, to necklines. Be the designer!
A few years ago I made a video that shows some advanced concepts in machine embroidery One of the concepts on the video was how to digitize cut work applique using the Singer Futura software. If you do not have the software you can still embroider the leaves. I will put the design on my web page for you to enjoy.
If you do not have a Futura with FHE format and need another format let me know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need help understanding your embroidery machine I do teach sewing machine and embroidery machine classes. Follow the link.
My favorite embroidery is monochromatic. I think the 2 color scheme makes my embroidery more fashionable and much easier to blend into my wardrobe. My favorite color combo is black and white. Many years ago I created this wonderful purse. I have made many versions of this handbag since. The flap is the key to the design. I created this embroidery to fit the flap and it is available to you for free. I also made the pattern available for free. Have fun creating your own work of art. The design was made in FHE format. If you need another embroidery design format email me at email@example.com
Machine Embroidery Quilt
SINGER Stock design CD Wall Quilt
Our SINGER Stock design CD embroidery quilt can be done on any embroidery machine that uses a 5” x 7” hoop. The format is DST, which most embroidery software will recognize. The printable templates and layouts make the transition from design to sew out easy. Just remember to center your hoop over the cross hairs.
You will need:
–Singer Stock design CD of 3900 designs or some floral and border embroidery designs that are similar.
-At least 3 1/2 yards of top background fabric for a 6 block wall quilt- each block is 20” finished. Each border is cut 6” across the 45”width of the fabric. For a 6” block wall quilt, cut 9 strips for border.
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!
Fall is my favorite time of the year! I love the clear cooler days and the colors and am really inspired to create some sewing and embroidery projects to welcome the season. The acorn is an embroidery design I made using my Studio 10 embroidery machine to do. The machine comes with auto punch software. Using the draw program I cleaned up the artwork and in one step made this lovely embroidery design which is free for you to download. acorn
I have several Fall embroideries to offer you and am experimenting with the links from this blog page. You should be able to click on the links and open the designs from the download file on your computer. For designs from the Gallery make sure you change the name of the file from _ to.format. Have fun. If you have trouble let me know.
