Great new embroidery project from Brother

Pin It

luggage tag

I opened my email this morning to find this great project from Brother. It looks easy enough for any embroidery machine. Watch the video and try this super easy luggage tag using built in lettering. If you have a machine that allows design combo it is even easier.

I have recreated the tag using the Singer Futura software. Watch my video and see how easy creating this tag as a design is. Optional video link for Futura video.

Embroidery on Ribbon and Webbing

Pin It

embroidery on ribbonI am sure you have thought about placing lettering and embroidery designs on straps, ribbon, and webbing. I will show you how to do this embroidery technique using tools in the Futura embroidery!  I have used auto punch  and editing and lettering options and show this in a brand new video. Take a look!

A lot of these technique involves sticky paper. We sell “Stick it All” and “Peel and Stick”. Both sticky papers will help you embroider items that can not be hooped. To see technique on stabilizers and hooping read this prior article on design placement.  I have loaded a link for Singer video to watch on proper hooping and stabilizer techniques.

JeanniecropLearn more about using your Futura software in our upcoming Futura Seminar December 13th and 14th 2014 at Jenny’s Sewing Studio in Salisbury, MD. The class is small for personal attention. Class is a 2 day event and held at Hancock fabrics. To enroll call Hancock’s at 410-677 3461.
