Fantastic Majestic cutwork embroidery on the leather bag!

Posted by Lena Kantis
When we did sew all the samples for the HUSQVARNA VIKING®  DESIGNER EPIC™, I think most of my colleagues here in the Huskvarna, got very excited when they saw the bag. All of us want to create a bag of our own, in our own favorite colors. We need to go and shop some nice leather.
The orange bag is made in a heavy leather, and it is smelling a lot like a horse stable. (in a good way). 

Thanks to the increased needle piecing power it is easy to sew in the leather as well as embroidering.

Embroidery on the leather using the Designer Majestic Hoop.

I have a wish to sew a dress in leather, but I keep postponing that as I want to loose a little more weight before I get started with that. Maybe I should set a date and go for it? What do you think?

Last week I did start with sewing two new dresses. One is grey and the other one is off white using the 
same pattern for both of them. The dress pattern is a download from Burda patterns. The grey dress has got embroidered roses in red, from the Mega Flowers "Flora" collection #113. I love those roses! There are more design collections that could be nice as well such as: Roses, embroidery collection#17, or embroidery collection Flowers and Frames 2 # 119.

For the front of the dress I combined two roses and resized them in the new Premier+. Yes, there is a wonderful skirt with rosew embroideries there too, shown in the samples. I want to sew that too!

I was not sure where to place my embroideries, so I printed the templates and pinned it on the front pieces to see where they should be placed.

Here is the dress so far. I am now sewing the lining and I have created a small bias binding for the neckline with the Mini Piping Foot. That will be a nice detail.

Hope to sew a little again tonight, to start putting the lining inside the dress. Carina showed how she does add the lining by using the sewing machine, I will try. Kerstin did it in another way, but remember, there is not right and wrong in sewing, only different options! 

Happy Sewing!

When sewing on leather, why does my bobbin thread break? I am using a needle for leather.

I pre-ordered the new Epic and paid in full. I am very excited about it and counting the days until it arrives but no one seems to know when the new machines will ship to customers. Can you tell me when the machine will arrive?

I have preordered the Designer Epic. Will the tote bag pattern be available, including the cut work embroidery when I receive this "can't hardly wait to receive my new machine"?
