Am working with a client who owns a local boutique and is branding her own clothing.....this is her brand that is stitched out on a leather jacket back.....I am doing a run of jackets and pants, too, will show those as I stitch them....

the wings are because her dad was a pilot and the inner text is roman numerals of her birthdate.......

X=10, V=5 and I=1. So the number is 24.

I love playing with numbers and wondered whether it would be day and month, the American way XX-IV (mm-dd gives Oct 14) or the European way (dd-mm) either XXI-V (21 May) or XX-IV (20 Apr).

Look wonderful, Vicky. Nice work on the leather. I love the wings and you got me guessing at the date - mm-dd (10-14) or the european way dd-mm (20-04 or 21-05).

I am turning green with envy of your stitching skills! You just do it all, and everything turns out fabulous! She's going to love this jacket.

Awesome. I've done suede but not leather. I'd be hesitant to try real leather.

Fantastic job Vicki. May I ask what sort of needle you use when sewing Leather? Does the needle cut the material, I'm always wary of sewing with Leather? Love Chris

I ran my machine full bore (1100 SPM) and regular 75/11 needle, I don't have any special needles for the Melco...it stitched beautifully......no cuts or tears.....

She has a great piece of art work, and just the right person to stitch it out well. Looks awesome!

Wow that looks classy.
I would be a bit intimidated doing embroidery on Leather but you make it look so easy. Which I am guessing it isn't.
Well done.
