Even though this isn't a highly active group, I wanted to post my machine embroidered ornaments that I made this weekend. I'd love to get more discussion going in this group. I'm trying to learn more about machine embroidery.
These two ornaments are from the current issue of the Creative Machine Embroidery magazine. The sock monkey is a free design from CME until December 31 at sandylightfoot.com. I have, however, rewritten the instructions for doing the design for a group I am going to lead in making it. Some steps were left out in the article (in my opinion).
The FSL ornament is enhanced with Angelina fibers.
Fortunately, I'm at my mother's this weekend and she had a small tree I could use to enhance the pictures! Mother's are good like that! LOL!
Great ornaments Roxana! I've done some FSL before, but not with angelina...never have used it. I just used Isacord thread for mine but they turned out nice. I don't think I have a picture, but I will check. If not, I will take one and post asap...
Donna, I still used Isacord. The Angelina fibers just enhanced the sparkle and shimmer of the FSL.
I adored the sock money, I too downloaded the free designs. I particularly like the fact that the hanger is not attached therefore it can be used for years to come with your own added year. Love the way it turned out. What did you find missing in the instructions? share please.
I love the snowflake. Is it 2 sided? Where did you get the design?
Ok so now that I read the whole post it answers my first question I will have to look up the design to see if it can be made 2 sided. I am also a DME subscriber and even attended one of their 2 day seminars.
The snowflake is Free Standing Lace so yes, it is 2-sided. It all came from Creative Machine Embroidery. The snowflake design is from OESD. It had to be bought but I had this one in my Design Stash! Let me know if this doesn't answer your questions.
