Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Did some embroidery for Halloween costumes for Agnes who will be a princess and Oscar who will be a knight.
The crown is Embroidery Library. I made some changes. Instead of all embroidery I used a gold metallic fabric as an applique and just added the decorative designs. I moved the outline stitches to the end of the design and added gold fabric on the back to cover the stabilizer and bobbin stitches. I am making a gold circle to sew the crown to. The design calls for elastic.
The crest for the Knight is a combo of the Plaque from Adorable You Software and the lion from Embroidery Library. At first I just added the lion that the program put entirely within the crest. I then changed it and saved the crest separately and added the lion so sit overlapped a bit. I thought I liked the look better.
Will go to Oak Park next week to sew the full costumes.
