How to place designs, Part 2

Do you have issues with proper placement of your designs? Tired of measuring and second guessing yourself? I have answers to all of your issues!!

If you are having issues with embroidery design placement, Designs in Machine Embroidery has an economical and easy answer: THE PERFECT PLACEMENT KIT. This is a fantastic way to quickly and properly place your embroidery designs – I am going to show you the whole Perfect Placement Kit and how easy it is to use.

Here is the link for this awesome kit: http://www.shop.dzgns.com?p=Hk_7ciicV

Here at oml embroidery, I love to try out new tools, new techniques and let you know how they work or if they work. You can see everything that is in the kit and exactly how to use it. I will be using this kit in my videos, it makes everything easy – no measuring, no guessing, no mistakes. The perfect placement kit just works for any machine embroidary designs.

This Kit will work perfectly for placement of any embroidery designs – stitched, applique and placement for embellishments like a monogram on an in the hoop project.

in my opinion, this would be a perfect kit for embroidery beginners just learning the skill of embroidery and more experienced embroiderers. If you know a beginner embroiderer, introduce them to perfect placement kit and save them tons of embroidering time, and of course embroidery mistakes.

Once you get the perfect placement using the templates, then you can take it to your embroidery machine. I have a Brother Dream Machine 2 and a brother PR100E embroidery machine, so I can either use the snowman stickers that get recognized by the machine, or you can use the placement stickers that come with the kit. If you are using the placement stickers, then you can either use the camera to line it up, or drop your needle to get everything perfectly aligned. Yep, it’s really that easy!

Make your embroidery look amazing – on towels, the corner of napkins, burp cloths and even pillow covers – if your embroidery is placed properly, your final embroidered product is going to look the best it can! You can use the templates for all of your machine embroidery projects.

Make old jeans new again with some LACE!! (it’s so pretty)

You can do this too!!

In this video, I am going to show you how to repurpose old ripped jeans into show-stopping lace embroidered jeans! I am using embroidery designs from Angela Wolf’s Lace Collection 1 for the designs – and I create my own design using elements from the collection so I can strategically place the embroidered lace on the jeans to cover up the tear. The lace is finished completely in the hoop and then you can use your sewing machine or hand sew the lace onto the jeans. You can embroider directly on the jeans, but it is difficult to do on skinny jeans unless you take the seam out. I used some tulle and water-soluble stabilizer (WSS). Well, I should have used tulle or organza, but I was trying to work on a budget and used “fabric” from the Dollar store, Dollarama. I thought it was organza, but it turns out to be different. At the machine, this fabric looks great, but not so great when I needed to trim it out. Embroidery Lace takes a long time to stitch out – but the gorgeous results make it worth the time you spend stitching. Angela Wolf’s Lace collection is simply gorgeous! Once your designs have finished stitching on your embroidery machine, you can simply cut it out. I did run into some issues with the fabric that I picked out – it turns out that this fabric works for embroidery, doesn’t work for detailed lace for trimming the lace. It was difficult to get it trimmed close to the embroidered lace. If you use tulle or organza you will find this step much easier to complete. Once you have everything trimmed out, you need to soak the lace to get rid of the water soluble stabilizer (WSS) from the back of the lace – and all you will be left with is the tulle and the embroidered lace. Once your lace is dry, you can place it on your jeans. I placed the lace that I designed over the hole in the jeans – to fix the jeans and to give the ripped jeans some strength. You can use your sewing machine with matching thread to sew the lace on to the jeans, or you can hand sew the lace around the edges. Use a zig zag or single stitch to follow the outline of the lace. I used a zig zag stitch in different directions to reinforce the rip in the jeans and because I am using the same thread, it doesn’t show at all! MACHINE EMBROIDERY EDUCATION. FOR EVERYONE. LEARN.
