Cute design! Looks great!*4U
Does frame and hoop are the same thing?
Translation is a hard thing: It should have been hoop.
Lovely pussycat, I have used the same tchnique for the first time this week and it works great, indeed much easier than hooping
I have tried it a few times more after my "cat". It seems to be working well. But I guess there could be problems with big frames and big designs, has anybody tried that ?
Going to try this technique, Sand, thanks for the information! And the kitty is just adorable, it came out so well! Marji
oh this is a sweet cat i love that design it look so sweet a flower for you gr sonja
He's a cute little kitty!!!!
Cute cat and technique is one I always use.
thanks for the advice, it looks very nice
The kitty is so cute. thanks 4 your new technique *4U
Thank you. But I cant take credit for the idea. I have read about it in a book by Jeanine Twigg. By the way a really good book called Embroidery Machine Essentials.
Sand, thank you for sharing your technique and this cute little cat on a towel. Adorable. *4U
Yes, isnt he cute. The children and their mates just love him, so I have to be careful not to say yes to too many.
Cute little guy! My machine doesn't do that for me, and I don't really have trouble with towels, but there are lots of things, I baste onto the stabilizer by hand. Way to make that machine work for YOU!;)
I haven't tried the hand basting jrob but have pinned. believe I'll try the hand basting *4U
Thank you. I think there are a lot of difference on the frames. The Pfaff-frame is difficult (for me) with towels, but I didnt have problems with my old Husqvarna. Nice idea with the hand-basting and pinnes.
Such a cute design. *4U
I love your towel. It is sew sew cute :) Great technique too. *4U
Very interessant your technic. It is always difficult to put towel in the hoop. What is Tear-away,and what is fix-stitches?
I love that little cat very good he has not touched to the ball of wool
Tear-Away is the kind of stabilizer I use as foundation of the Embroidery. And fixing-stiches are a feature my embroidery machine has. Before embroidering, I "ask" it to put a line of long stiches around where the design will be made. It makes the fabric extra stabil. And here I have used it for fixing the fabric/ the towel to the stabilizer in the frame. Hope that helped a bit.
What a mischevious little critter Sand. Sounds like you've found a good technique.
