How Machine Embroidery Designs Are Made

How machine embroidery designs are made

Many of you have asked before about the process that goes into making a designs, well today just felt like the right day to come clean about how the magic happens. Literally. You have no idea how many tiny tacos it takes to stitch out all our designs.

Ok, so I know it’s coming… how many of you really want Steampunk Bacon Cat as a design?

*EDIT* – Ok, your wish is my command. That’s right, your Steampunk Bacon Cat design is here! Get him right here. Just make sure your tiny sewing gremlins are well stocked with tiny tacos.

(Also, I feel it prudent to note that I am the first person on the internet to put the words “steampunk bacon cat” together. It’s true. I googled.)

Hand stitch and hand embroidered. Do you see that tiny little beading detail on the cat?

I’m in love.

Bragging Rights

This absolutely cracked me up. Totally handmade stitching from FingerPricks.

The best part?

Yeah, it’s totally for sale. Hang that pretty on your wall and smile with all the snarky irony you can muster, then proudly show it off to house guests. I’m guessing they won’t know if it’s funny because it’s true, or because it isn’t.

Fig A. – Adding your Arc Reactor to the Bobbinator…

Wouldn’t this just make explaining all those technical steps in threading your machine so much more informative? I’m thinking my tutorials would improve by three measures of awesome.

Many thanks to Craft Gossip for pointing out this awesome little diagram that Gertie’s New Blog For Better Sewing featured. From there you can get links to the original from Regretsy, including the extra hilarious but un-postable R rated version.
