I made Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service awhile back so it was only a matter of time until I made a Jiji one too! I love his sassy little face.

Kept it simple between other orders, so he costs significantly less than my normal embroidery hoops. Only two available because that’s all the pumpkin fabric I have left!

How to embroider on clothing?

How to embroider on clothing?

Step 1: trace pattern pieces of garmint you will sew onto fabric. draw embroidery design on them. small fine lines is good, especially if you will not wash embroidery after.

Step 2: use an hoop or embroidery frame to stretch fabric nice and tight so it will not do a wrinkly. Embroider thing on there. this will most likely take quite a while unless it is a very small embroider. Many needlework guidebooks exist to tell you all about different stitches and whatnot, and can porbably be found in your local library.

step 3: see that thing is all done being embroidered, and maybe possibly wash it. it depends on material. if it is a cotton thing then yeah sure wash it, but if it is a silk taffeta or satin then no do not.
iron it nice smooth flat.

step 4: cut all pieces out.

step 5: sew thing. (side note – i sewed this particular thing very wrong and unpicking and re-making it completely is on my to-do list. even the step shown in this picture is wrong.)

Step 6: admire thing you sewed.

the end.

(oh, also, reminder that I’d prefer sewing questions to be sent to my other blog that is mostly sewing, rather than this one which is supposed to be mostly dinosaurs)
