    Heather says:

    It was a pretty close call between the 3D Robot and the Antique Embroidered Book, but I think I’m going to have to go with the Antique Embroidered Book. I haven’t made one yet, but it’s one of the first things I found when I came to this site, I promise I’ll make one eventually! <3

    Sally says:

    My fave has to be the Evenfall lace tutorial, it gave me so many ideas of ‘other’ things to do with the patterns – am working on a pair of shoes at the moment that are too big, so going to use one of the designs as a kinda buckle to hold them on.

    Wow they all have great information. I really liked the one about preventing shifting and gapping (i’m still a newbie at this). But if I’m trying something new…like FSL your tutorials are where i go.

  53. 53
    Tam says:

    Favorite tutorial is the Mad Hatter book. For a pagan, that is the best treatment to give to a sketchbook to make it into an awesome Book of Shadows, not to mention I have *always* wanted to know how to make my own book boxes, and was completely psyched to find a nice clear way to do so – without machine embroidery cause at that time I had no machine. (Just got mine 2 weeks ago, still making friends with it.)

  54. 54
    Darlene says:

    So far I have done the In-jean designs on most all of my jeans, and some of my capri pants. I’ve done wine cozies for friends, and am thinking of doing the Mini Patch Hair Clips. And even though it is found under inspiration/lookbook instead of tutorials – I have Christmas gift plans for the Baroque Punk Blazer!
