A cautionary tale for those of us who don't do practice stitchouts! The end result is wonderful!
I know what knockdown stitches are, but never saw them used where I can actually see the stitches. Now, I don't know how to do thelm. It looks like they are just stitches sewn on a sewing machine. Or, are the knockdown stitches an actually embroidery design?
I did a practice stitch-out. LOL I asked my boys if it looked OK. They said yes. I asked later why they didn't tell me it was misspelled -- I asked if it LOOKED OK not if it was spelled correctly. LOL I do love my boys! Spelling is not my strong suit.
Knockdown stitches are done with the embroidery machine as if it were the first color in a design to sew. It is a special feature in embroidery software.
I saw something here that I am not familiar with. Can someone tell me what knockdown stitches are?
If you look closely at the picture (spelled Magnus) you will see white stitching under the lettering. The knockdown stitches make a flat space to place embroidery.
Thank you for the explanation.
Third time is the charmer...
Thank you. I worked harder on this "quick" job than I have before.
Looks perfect now. Don't you just love knock-down stitches. They tame all sorts of impossible fabrics. I would have misspelled Mangus as well, sounds like fruit to me.
Thank you. The true spelling is Magnus. Even my spell checker thinks it is wrong. lol The boys joke about us using the other stocking for our dog, Gus. I'm sure they will laugh about the fruit bit.
I bet Gus will be happy no matter how his name looks!
Perfectly executed after a practice stitch.........
I do hope it is the last one this year though. I am still tasting fur. lol
I know, I had to vacuum my office after I finished those santa hats for the cleaners......I will remember the knock down stitches as it will sure save on wss! Love all we learn on this website.......
3rd time lucky they say. Well done. Hugs
Isn't that just so annoying? Great job once you got it right. Love Chris
Thanks Chris. I'm glad it is done now
Looks great! That fur is a bear to stitch - ask me how I know. I think 3 times is what is required to get the dang things right. LOL! Have you stopped inhaling the fuzzies yet?
LOL I have been using my lint roller so much and it is still everywhere!
The stuff is almost as bad as glitter!
wowwwwww i think this is the first time i have seen u sew***i am impressed looks good hugs
