I thought I would show you my first in the hoop project. My hoop is 10cm x 10cm so the finished bunny if quite tiny but cute!
First you put your material in the hoop that you want to be the front (with the face on)
embroider this and when the machine stops you put the 'back' on face down.
The instructions say to spray repositional adhesive but I used a piece of masking tape to hold it down.
When the outline has been stitched you take it out of the hoop and cut around.
Turn inside out and there you have a flat bunny!! wow! so easy
Here is the bunny stuffed - isn't she gorgeous.
I sent her off to my niece - I hope she loves her.
I think I could get quite addicted to bunnies now!
There are some really nice patterns in this magazine (Burda 2/2010), but I haven't made any yet.
I find Burda patterns don't fit my body shape as well as Knipmode, but I thought this pattern was so nice and practical and happening to have some lovely stripes in my stash, I thought I would give this one a go!
The pattern is very easy to make up and I made most of this on my sewing machine.
The fabric is a velour so it was a bit heavy around the neck and too big.
The make the top fit my bust the neck was far too loose so I took in the front at the sides against the sleeves. Unfortunately, this left a gape above the bust so I made some pleats - I think they look ok when worn.
I will be making this top again but now know how much to adjust the pattern to fit before cutting out!!
