I just wanted to share my progress on this design. I’m absolutely in love with it! Now that I have worked out the formatting haha. I’m so sorry, you must think I’m rather daft. I understand the formatting now, I won’t have any questions in the future.
It stitches out so beautifully without one single hitch. Not one thread break which I find incredible considering the level of detail! I’ve still got a few more things to add to the overall design but I’ve already had a lot of comments on the tiger. I haven’t made anything for myself for ages, this one is really special.
I will definitely be stocking up on more of your designs, I have a wish list as long as my arm! Sophie
Your jacket is just beautiful Sophie. I love the contrast of the tiger and the flowers – strength and beauty. Suz
Sandra totally surprised me by stitching Myth and Mystery on a white Jean jacket. But wow – I love the way she looks.
From Sandra: Wanted to tell you I stitched the Myth and Mystery gal on the back of a white jeans jacket. Absolutely gorgeous. Her face, particularly her eyes, are mesmerizing. Hope you’ll digitize more large format designs like that. I have a stack of blue jeans jackets waiting for your special designs. Hint…hint
I will Sandra!
Unfortunately the back had 2 French seams but it’s still beautiful. – Sandra
Here are photos of a jacket I made. This is how I found BFC! I wanted a large dragonfly design for the back this came up in my Google search. It was perfect – dragonflies, large design, beautiful colors.
I have a multi-needle, so I decided to figure out a way to work it in only 10 colors. I( don’t always do this, but my previous project was an embroidered quilt and each block had more than 10 colors – I wanted a break from changing threads!)
I did a test stitchout because there is so much shading and I needed to know exactly where every color was used to be sure I didn’t end up with something odd. I think I did a second test stitchout because I still was undecided if jacket would be orange it’s purple lapels or purple with orange lapels. I have learned that colors on a purple background look different than those same colors on an orang background. But, it is worth all the time doing tests.
The other embroidery designs are not yours, so I understand if you don’t post those pictures.
I am happy I found your site. I previously sent pictures of a couple things I made from your designs for my mom. She loves them. The angel was hung up right away and then moved several times as my mom looked for their perfect spot. I was so happy to make something for her that she loves.
I asked Nadina about the jacket pattern: N
Thank you. The pattern is from Lisette for Butterick B6169 https://oliverands.com/shop/lisette-for-butterick-b6169-sewing-pattern.html
Yes, the jacket is all mine! And I wear it. I should have left a bit more ease in the back to account for the stiffness, but I don’t care. I was pleased that I finished it (first time making a lined jacket). Yeah, I know the bright colors aren’t for everyone, but it is very me!
Marge stitched Fred’s Tiger, BFC1469 large Stalking Tiger, to the back of her jacket. I think he looks very impressive!!!
From Marge – “Finally got the tiger put on a jacket. I love the way it came out and really surprised my self that I could do it. “
