He is such a cute Moose. I agree with the others to try an add some more embroidery.
Many thanks to you as well Sarah!~hugs~
I think some little glittery snow flakes or even some rain drops would cover your tiny holes some greenery afterall moose do dwell in wooded areas, ferns, some pine needles. You'll think of something. I think he is a cute little moose/Lillian
Thanks Lillian very much. ~hugs~
Thank you all for your suggestions I have tried unsuccessfully to add a design to this but I just can't seem to get the placement right so I give up until another day! sigh.............I may give the hand work snowflakes a try that way the placement will be where it needs to be. ~hugs & flowers for all~
Well you did save it...Add small things on the holes.Drops etc...
I have tried unsuccessfully to add a design to this but I just can't seem to get the placement right so I give up until another day! sigh.............
So cute. I would embroidery some dots (like Balls) over the holes, plus a few more. Then it would look like he is "juggling" balls. lol Ruth J
What a terrific jacket and love the moose!! I too have occasionally had to stitches and what a pain in the patutie!
Hmmm... maybe something is in the air that affects embroiderers! I read comments from asterixsew about words that she had to remove.
I was trying out a new floral on a shirt for my mom, and the fabric was so stretchy that it kept moving around on me. So stopped, took out all the stitches, and decided that tomorrow will be a better day. (and maybe whatever is in the air will be gone! LOL)
A shame this happened.. If floating the fabric on top I use straight sewing pins to hold to stabilizer then run the tacking stitches if need to.. I'm sure you've already worked out how to hide the small holes.. Marian
sieht trotzdem gut aus
He is cute and I am sure you can fix with cover up. Snowball, flakes little mound of snow.
Arr what a shame, he is so cute, I hope it works our for you
I am not sure as what happened. I do use straight pins to secure item to stabilizer as I do not like removing the basting stitches. Sorry it was not to your plans. i am sure you will find a way that suits you the best. Trial and error!!! Kay
I feel your pain...if you are going to add small designs around and over the holes..iron on some fusible knit interfacing like cloud cover first...it will stabilize the holes and the surrounding area...then go ahead and embroider the "fix" designs as you would normally with a new hooping of stabilizer...ask me how I know...I have had to do this more than once...it works very well...even if you digitized a few small hearts..or stars...or added an acorn or some other small embellishment...it should work great...and truth be told...it will look amazing...
He still looks cute hugs
This is cute. starbirdstockdesigns.com has a cute miniature snowflake.
Loralye he's adorable.
I'm working on a hoodie too, I use a sticky stabilizer instead of the tack stitches, the stabilizer I use isn't sticky until it moistened with water (a damp cloth) the wetter the stabilizer the stickier it gets, don't need much moister or it's hard to remove. Then tear away the excess stabilizer.
If you do any hand embroidery, you can do some white dots like a mini snowflake, there called a French knot.
provided the link for you....cheers :)
a very good idea thanks Loosie I think I will give this a try
It is very cute, hope you find something to cover it with.
Too cute to lose, i agree that putting something over the holes could turn out fine...
something to think about for sure...............
Is putting a smaller design over the little holes an option? I also find the tacking stitches a bit of a nuisance and only use when absolutely necessary. nice moose.
thank you very much, I wasn't sure how to keep it in place without the tacking stitch? Any thoughts on how to do this would be appreciated
Glad that it all turned out well at the end. Somehow I reversed some words I was embroidering today and spent an age getting thread out so I know how you feel
sttssstttts such a niusence! thank you very much Caroline
It is cute and a big bummer that this happened. What about miniature snowflakes or stars over the holes. It is certainly worth a little extra to salvage the item.
thank you very much Karen & that might work if I can find something small enough
Starbird Stock designs has a miniature snowflake that I just got from their site and better yet it's a freebie, kinda cute.
