Here is the owl, I basted the T-shirt to the stabilizer so I wouldn’t have hoop burn on the black ! I think embroiders need to realize they can change up the colors too as with the owl, I couldn’t use black for the outlines!
That’s a great hint Bernice! Color can make so much difference. Don’t just assume the design you are checking has to be done in the colors shown.
Hi Suz, Good afternoon.
Your designs are just amazing!! I am sending a picture (as promised) of the Tiffany Peacock, sorry the picture isn’t better I think I am getting a glare off the lake. As I mentioned earlier, you can see the colours are spot on if compared with the actual stained glass. I am very pleased with how it turned out, and this one is just for me. Friends and family see what I have done and now they all want one. I have also found that working on the designs (and e mails back and forth with you) I have also learned more.
Thanks so Much Suz, have a great day.
Gorgeous Kelly Jean!
I love this method of displaying embroideries! It looks like a real painting.
This is how I did the embroidery on the canvas…Genene
Good morning. Here is the latest in my adaptation of your awesome design, BFC 1409, Oriental Cranes. I have had the background fabric in my stash half way to forever knowing someday I would find the perfect use for it. Obviously your design was it. I did some simple quilting on the backgroud fabric before I did the embroidery and after I did some design placement with a template. Then once the design was finished I outlined stitched the design for a little more definition.. Thanks so much for all you do. Until next time, happy stitching!
Absolutely beautiful Laura!
I cannot wait to design these feathers on a pair of jeans. I know they will look amazing. …Lorraine
I’d love to see a picture of the feathers on jeans! I bet they will be great. …Suz
Thank you – Suz
Had fun doing these for my daughter. She will love them!!! Thank you, Lorraine
BFC0462 Peacock Feathers
When I first bought from you I love your work Cherie
BFC1523 FSL Winter Birds
I did this one for me! I stitched out the nest and twigs twice. Once directly on fabric then again on tulle so it would be dimensional. Free motioned the tulle pieces on top of original on fabric for thickness. Let one twig hang out at bottom!!! Then cut out a bunch of leaves and ironed them on like you had done! Wrapped finished scene around a canvas wrapped picture frame from Michael’s!
This is absolutely gorgeous Alta. I love the idea of stitching the branches twice. That method could be used for so many things. A really beautiful picture of the Egret. Suz
This was the first design I ever bought from BFC and the first ever of this size in all my years of embroidering. It did not disappoint!! How gorgeous and detailed! The layers of colors, as if bringing the pheasant to life! The instructions were clear and easy to repeat, even for my first time of rehooping within a design. The stitching is museum worthy!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent!!! I give this design 1,000,000 stars!!
Thank you so much Nelissa – I’d love to see a photo your your embroidery. Suz
The set: BFC1360 Large Pheasant
Hi Suz, Have sewn the peacock and I am really pleased with it. As I love silk this has been sewn on silk. I used the old method of lining up designs with the basting stitched lines directly on the silk. A few changes to thread colours also as I just used what I had here; so he’s a special ‘hybrid’ bird!
Thank you for such lovely designs.
The way you have finished this embroidery, Colleen, makes it look so rich! This set, done in November of 2008 was the first large design I split and put together using the BFC Method. So many people have done our large designs successfully! And they report the process is really easy. Suz
