What I did with one of your designs – thanks so much! It has gotten many compliments and I’m telling everyone where the design is from – Ree
I absolutely love your jacket! That is such a great idea and something I doubt many people would think of. I’m glad you are getting the compliments for it – you deserve them. And thank you for telling where the design is from 🙂 Suz
Barbara has come up with two different jackets. I like the way one has the patch added. Makes it easy to do, you can check to make sure you like it before finishing and adds to the design of the jacket!
My other embroidery machine took a nose dive in the middle of a dream catcher and I had to cover it. I made this patch with the BFC31431 design and saved the jacket. I loved the way it sewed out.
My daughter wanted a panel on her jean jacket, too. This one was done on purpose, LOL. I bought and used BFC thread suggested on the color sheet and the wonderful pattern BFC31435. I love BFC thread, as you can see it and the pattern file sew out beautifully.
I love them both Barbara! Suz
Cathy combines designs for this white jacket. She starts with Delight’s Jeweled Dragon and then adds designs from our Red Roses – Black Scrolls set for a very unique, striking piece of clothing!
Renee has stitched so much over time! She found this bunch of photos and sent them to my group. Enjoy!
I Love it! Thought you would like to see it!
Yes Vicki – I love it too! I bet you’ve gotten a lot of comments wearing this. Suz
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. “
