Embroidery Contest 2006

Entry # 8

Embroidery Contest 2006 image 1

This participant has used several designs from the Dog Breeds section to make a birthday gift to a friend.

"I was so excited with the results of these stitchouts that I had to share them! A very dear friend has each one of these dogs. When I found the dog breeds in photo stitch on your site I knew right away I had to do these for his birthday. I used the chow, cocker, long haired chihuahau and bulldog. I did have to change the colors on two of them so they would match his dogs in color. I was totally thrilled with the results. I used the Janome Memory Craft 300E to stitch these out. As far as placement, I just put a piece of silk under the frame and put a template of each of the designs down to see how I liked them. I did put a piece of fusible woven cotton on the back of the silk for stability and used tear away stabilizer under that. I confess that I did not use anything on the top of my work as I felt the finish on the silk was strong enough. As a finish for the photo I decided on the burgundy and gold matting (which I did myself since it costs a small fortune to have it done commercially). Please give your designer a big "thumbs up" for me for creating the wonderful designs for me to create this well loved birthday gift."
