What kind of long-pile fabrics do you use?
I've never worked with long-pile fabrics before so I thought I'd ask here in case someone who sees this has. I'd like to make something that would have a minky body with an identically-coloured but much more shaggy tail. What would you folks recommend shopping for in this case? Thanks for any help!
Stopping plush-making indefinitely
Plush-making has been an amazing hobby, but I think it's now time for me to move on. Thanks, everyone, for your support throughout my journey, and apologies to those who started following me expecting more.
How do you deal with Minky seams?
So one minor but persistent problem I've had when sewing with Minky is the way the fibers sometimes get caught in the seams, leaving a relatively prominent groove. This also happens to some degree when embroidering on any substantially-napped fabric. I've tried searching online about this quirk, but have not found any articles addressing it. Have any of you who have worked with Minky experienced this problem, or is it just me? If the former, how do you resolve it? Thanks for any help!
Need recommendations for new Embroidery Software!
So it looks like Sierra is discontinuing the free version of Stitch Era, Stitch Era Universal, sometime in 2013. The announcement was actually issued early last month, but I only noticed it today while creating the embroidery stitch files for the next pony. I had a good run with Stitch Era, but would prefer to explore and switch to other embroidery software as soon as possible. Do any of you have recommendations for good alternatives? It'd be nice if they were free, but I wouldn't mind paying for them if they're priced reasonably. Candidates must be able to export to Brother's PES stitch file format, and preferably be able to import vectors
This is very cool. I gave it a try. I think that if the first time you play it you can have a tutorial. I didn't read the instructions when I first started so I was a bit confused. Fantastic work
