Sophie’s Tiger Jacket

Hi 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’s Myth and Mystery in White

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

Nadina’s Jacket

Hi Suz,

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!
