I need help with Christmas ornaments.
I have been working on Christmas ornaments on the embroidery machine. I would like to thank who-ever suggested to the sewer who was trying to sew a design on a nylon jacket to use the “frame” designs to make patch and apply that to the jacket. I made ornaments last year on fleece and started turning my square on point to get a more gracefuly ornament that the square with the hanging loop on the middle of one side.
My problem is that this year I wanted to sew on woven material and even when I put batting and backing on the back of the finished design before removing it from the hoop and did a finishing “frame”; when it is removed from the hoop and trimmed it still doesn’t have a finished edge.
I know someone else has probably solved this problem. My latest thought is to sew a plain circle frame around the design and then do a narrow and then wider satin stitche around the design with maybe trimming after the first row of satin stitch.
Last year the kids got very tickled with ornaments with their names and the year embroidered on them.
