- IRENE WEARING HER STUNNING EMBROIDERED T-SHIRT WITH CRYSTALS ADDED USING ARTISTIC SEWING SUITE SOFTWARE
At a recent Embroidery Club event at one of my Dealer’s in Vancouver, BC: Langley Vacuum & Sewing, one of our very loyal customer’s, Irene, arrived wearing a stunning black T-shirt embellished with embroidery and crystals. Knowing how very creative Irene is, and how much she loves to do embroidery with her Embroidery machine, I asked her if she had made her top? YES, she had! She used ARTISTIC SEWING SUITE VERSION 6 embroidery software to add crystals to the embroidery design. She then added the crystals using the software and cameo cutting equipment in the same manner I outline in my blogposts on janomelife : How to add the crystals to embroidery or turn stitch fills into crystal fill. (Just use the Search box on the janomelife blog home page to find archived blogposts or click on August 2012 & scroll down to applicable posts dealing with Artistic Sewing Suite)
PLEASE NOTE: these crystals were NOT added using a crystal applicator or wand adding them individually one by one. As you will appreciate, that would take a VERY long time. NO, these crystals were added with a unique and very fast technique using the Artistic Sewing Suite crystal software and then following certain steps to adhere crystals to a sticky sheet (transfer tape) and then simply ironing or pressing the crystals in place ( results in a permanent bond) ALL at ONCE. So easy! And so stunning! Well done, Irene, your T-shirt is just beautiful. Thank you for allowing me to share it with the folk who visit our elnalife blog.
Irene told me that she had made this project while attending The 2012 Sew Easy Sewing & Embroidery Retreat in Reno earlier this year.
