Do you remember the Stupendous Stitching which kind of went viral on Craftsy.com some years back? I saw this technique done all over the place for several years ……here is the post we did back in June of 2012 using machine decorative stitches.
Stupendous stitching just got revisited (above) in a totally new way by Donna Morton of Snip and Stitch Sewing Center, Nanaimo, BC. She took the concept of stupendous stitching aka machine decorative stitch embellishment and digitized designs for our Janome embroidery machines. She digitized using both our Janome Digitizer MBX as well as Artistic Digitizer. Thank you, Donna, for showing us at Janome Days last month at Snip and Stitch Sewing Center exactly how to digitize Stupendous stitching with both of our software programs. Isn’t it so COOL that we can very easily digitize machine decorative stitches to stitch out in our hoops? I am thrilled to show what I did with Donna’s digitized designs:
Now, you don’t have to digitize stupendous stitching like Donna did. You may want to give it a try if you own embroidery software like our Janome Digitizer MBX or Artistic Digitizer. OR you could use decorative stitches on your Jnaome sewing machine to replicate what you see in the digitizing here or in our previous post on Stupendous stitching.
Want a tutorial on sewing up a little baggie like this? Check out this post we did quite some time ago with step by step photo’s and instructions. And here is a great video courtesy of Janome America where Erin shows you step by step how to make a vinyl zipper pouch.
For sewing supplies? Knitting? shoes? toiletries? cosmetics? medication when travelling? …….you name it and they can have a nice, new, tidy “home”.
I am a self-confessed Dec stitch queen and love to embellish with dec stitches at every opportunity. However, doing the stitching THIS way, by digitizing and stitching in the hoop, was pretty darn clever and was also much quicker! Thanks, Donna and Snip and Stitch Sewing Center for this great project idea for our March Project of the month.
What do you think? Are you inspired to do something similar?
