I love the look of these type of designs (lots of stitches) but I just will not embroidery them out, but your design it beautiful.
What a wonderful design. I love embroidery library designs. :)
I think I agree with the others, a little stippling would be great. I know whoever get's it will love it. Thanks for sharing. :)
I would stipple with a stabilizer. That way if they throw it in the washing machine, it'd not get all mangled.
I think you'd be fine with thin batting and stippling, in the same color as the material. Yes to lining. It's lovely the way it is and if you do decide to stipple I don't believe it would detract from the design, if it was in the same color as the material.
This is beautiful! I love the richness of EmbLib's designs. Your color choices are perfect. As for quilting on this bag.... I don't think that I would. You could use some fusible fleece to give it heft if it needs it, and would be nice to have a lining. This is going to be gorgeous!
That is Gorgeous...Awesome design
Stunning job, I'd do as gerryb suggests and just line the tote. I think the design on its own is just stunning. Love Chris
Wow! Toogie, well worth the long hours to stitch it, a super job you have done with this dense design. Sandra.
Wow! Beautiful! Worth the lost sleep! I wouldn't stipple around it, but would line the tote.
great job toogie, if it was me I think I would like it lined. Emblibrary has some great designs don't they?
I think it looks terrific on it's own but it is up to you hat you like best~hugs~
I agree with the others that you've done a beautiful job in spite of the wee hours of the morning. That has never happened to me! You asked if you should stipple around the design. My own personal opinion is that stippling might take away from the beauty of the design, unless it was a very, very small stippling. If it were mine, I think I would make a few straight radiating lines around the design. On the back I would make the same straight lines diagonally in a diamond pattern. A design this beautiful definitely calls for a beautiful lining. I know you will show us your finished project. Can't wait to see it.
It is beautiful Toogie
Looks great. Most of the time when you get a nice design esp. from Embroidery Library. There's alot of stitches and takes awhile to do but worth it in the end. Loveit. Arlene
What about spray starch the fabric from the wrong side that would put the sizing back into the fabric.
Here in Australia you can buy it in a pressure pack can in the soap powder isle. Sometimes it could be labelled as ironing aid.
Sorry forgot to say it was worth you staying up late you have done a good job of the design.
There is something about embroidering in the week small hours. A great piece of work and worth your efforts
wow, it looks great, I would make iron pad (wattierung) from the back , hugs Maria
Looks great Toogie hugs
