what a great job...
How did you get it "flat" to do the embroidery ?
You start your work on your regular sewing machine and make it the size you wish to embroider on. I have a 5x7 hoop so I made mine about 5 1/2 inches in diameter. A 4x4 design fits nicely here..This part goes on your hoop to do your design. Then you go back to your sewing machine and finish your bowl.
Fabulous! You put the red in just the right spots to emphisize the curves. The center design make it perfect for your card! Did you use any stabilizer on the embroidery?
I used a tearaway in the hoop and sewed the rope to the stabilizer with my regular sewing machine because my machine doesn't like sticky things. It took me a long time to figure out what is such a simple solution. I tried all kinds of spray and none of them worked for me. Then I floated a washaway over the top to keep the stitches from sinking in.. .
Good for you for finding the perfect solution! It really did turn out perfectly.
I should have given the size. It is 9 1/2 inches across and 5 inches high, a pretty large bowl. I am using it to hold my Christmas cards.
very lovely Merry C/mas hugsxxx
Perfect. I have to admire your adventures spirit. The result is awesome.
Your first attempt - perfect, looks great :-)
Nicely done, Teresa...
what a wonderful job u did.
Brilliant work Teresa, it looks amazing. Love Chris
Oh my! You have given yourself a beautiful bowl. I'd say your first attempt looks great!
This is simply perfect - I would love to make one some day!! Was it hard to do? Yours is so nice!!! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Laura
I must admit that before I finished the bowl I took it apart and did part of it over again. It took me a little while to get the feel of handling it. I think if I do another one it will go together much easier because I learned a little along the way.
Great job! My 1st one bowed so much after I embroidered it, that it looked like a wok. Didn't even put the sides on it.
