How do you correct a problem with a design not matching up to an outline?
I embroidered some aprons with Santa’s on it. On both of them the hat did not match up to the outline. I did an angel from the same set and nothing happened. The photos are the designs I used on the aprons, not the actual piece I did. There is a 1/4 inch gap around the top of the hat to the gray outline.
On the item to the right, the hat and face did not met up. I know people have stated to use a fabric pen, but its not going to be the same texture as the embroidered item and it’ll look pretty crappy if you ask me. The order that I did 4 aprons where, angel, santa 1, santa 2 and then I finally said no more from this set and did a design from EmbLibrary and everything stitched like it was suppose too.
So now I am trying to figure out how to correct this matter. I was so discussed that I shut my machine off for the day on Saturday (besides I had other items to tend to). I have that feeling that I am going to have to pull out the thread and needle and do it by hand. If someone has any ideas, let me know for future problems. And I am going to say this – they say to stitch the design out prior to actually putting it on apparel – I don’t think I wish to waste over an hour and half to stitch a sample and then do the actual! These designs were very LARGE.
Today I turned on the machine to do some baby burp cloths with some sayings while I sewed up some infant fleece hats that I cut up the other morning. I became aggravated because the bobbin thread refused to snatch the embroidery thread. So I basically told the machine you want to play games, fine and I shut it off. I know I have to call Aaron to do a house call to do a yearly check-up on the machine. Lately I’ve been using it alot so it needs attention. Now that the Quilt/Sew Expo is over he will be available.
So now I am almost finished with all my fleece items. I cut up all my left overs to make infant size hats and ear bands. Now I sit in front of the television listening and occasionally look up watching House as I measure and make the top of the hats. Tomorrow is another day.
