Very lovely towels, can you send them to me. Ha Ha
Thank you for sharing, Happy Stitching!!!
Thanks Brenda. Im sorry I dont have your address LOL
What festive towels! Love the set and the design you chose.
The towel designs are stunning, you have done a fantastic job with these. Sandra.
Thank you Sandra
Never heard of those knock down stitches please explain lol
Love your design hugs
Thank you Noah. Here's an explanation/quote that I took directly off the Embrilliance website. I have a hard time putting sentences together since I had a little "heart" incident in March. This will much better explain it than I can, hope this helps!
"When sewing on terry or any fabric with loops and nap, generally a topping stabilizer is used. These can be helpful, but have a limitation: They do not hold down the nap past the actual stitch, which means outlines can be lost in the surrounding fabric. Using Knockdown you can create a global underlay for the entire design. The underlay extends a few millimeters past the edge of the design, which helps the overall effect." And I will add to this. If you use a contrasting color instead of the same color as the fabric, the effect can also be stunning.
Thanks for the explanation. I've never heard of such a technique before.
Stunning work done...So Pretty and Fresh!!
I also have 'knock down stitches' in my software but called something different. I have never used this but when I see your beautiful embroidery, I feel that I must try
Thank you! They are very useful.
They are beautiful. Great "knock down stitches".
Gorgeous...now whomever touches them shall get their knuckles rapped with a ruler! I love using the "knock down" embossing stitches too..
LOL Amen to that Sister! Thank you!
Those are beautiful. I haven't had breakfast yet and already learned something new.
Thank you! One thing I didn't mention was that the knockdown stitches can also be used as a decorative alternative if you don't use a color that matches the fabric.
Stunning! Love ❤️ Chris
Thank you Chris!
Nice Designs and Font.
Wow, love those towels and the design looks great on each of them.
Thanks for letting us know about the knockdown stitches tool provided by your software, that's a very useful tool.
very pretty... :-)
Your towels are beautiful. I never came across the term 'knockdown stitches' but always use the same concept on towels. I especially like that yours extend a bit outside the design.
Thank you Mops!
Pam, your towels are absolutely beautiful!
Thank you very much!
Knockdown stitches are used on plushy type fabric where under normal circumstances the embroidery stitching would get "lost" in the towel. It lays a very loose layer of stitches that "knockdown" the loops in the towel or whatever lofty fabric you are working with. It sews them first, and normally you use a thread color the same color as the fabric. If you click on the picture you can see around the edges of the design where the stitching actually lays flat. Its part of an Embrilliance Enthusiast software package. Ive used 4 major software packages since Ive been doing this from the mid 90's, and the Embrilliance platform is by far the least expensive and easiest program I've ever used. The knockdown stitches are done with 1 click of the keyboard.
beautiful set - what are knock down stitches ?
Thank you. I commented about it above.
These are beautiful! (Among the nicest towels I've ever seen!) What are knockdown stitches?...embossed?
Thank you so much!
These are beautiful!
I'm not sure I know how to do 'knock down stitches' or did you digitize this yourself and it's like embossed?
This set is so nice. I hope they are for you. I think I need a set-lol
Thank you. I didn't digitize this design, I bought it from somewhere but don't remember where. It was just the wreath and I added the letter. And yes, they are for me, since SOMEBODY misplaced my Christmas towels that I normally display LOL (that would be the kids who borrowed them for their Christmas party).
