Here is the coat I'm making (click the picture to enlarge).
Yesterday I traced off the embroidery motif from the pattern sheet. I traced it onto clear water soluble stabilizer with a extra fine point Sharpie.
Here is the image on the stabilizer. Ottobre instructs you to pin the stabilizer on the wrong side of the fabric, stitch the lines with a straight stitch, then flip the garment over to the right side and follow the straight stitch lines with a satin/zig zag stitch to produce the embroidery. The nature of my fabric didn't allow me to pin, so I used some temporary spray adhesive to attach my stabilizer.
Here is part of the embroidery done with the satin stitch. You can also see where the ouline is for me to follow. Please excuse the lint. My fabric is bonded faux leather with a fluffy shearling on the other side (very messy!).
I will try to work some more on the jacket tomorrow, however I'm on my Auntie "M" babysitting duty now and with 6 kids in the house, it's rather wild! So far so good ~ no replay of last time yet (and there better not be!). Only smiles, laughter, and a lot of fun!
