Behind the Seams


I grew up with a closet full of dresses that my grandmother made for me. My creative fires were sparked when my grandmother let me borrow her beloved HUSQVARNA VIKING® sewing machine. She taught me the basics and I started creating designs from her fabric scraps.

Before my grandmother passed away, she gave me her sewing machine and the opal earrings that she had worn every day for as long as I can remember. Such precious memories. How it made me smile when I saw the HUSQVARNA VIKING® OPAL™ sewing machine in the store! I'm thrilled to be able to teach my daughters how to sew on it.

To quote Sophie herself: "Sewing makes a house a home", and Sophie's bedroom really is the perfect example. See, for instance, how that bedside quilt adds character to the room? Using the built-in sewing fonts of the HUSQVARNA VIKING® OPAL™ machine, Sophie created her own personalized label for the quilt. Isn't it beautiful?

Sophie's Note

Can you believe it? Since I got my hands on the new OPAL™ sewing machine, I've created all the projects that you see on this page! Not only were they fun to make, they really made my house a home!

Sophie's Note

This Black & White Bow shirt quickly became one of my favorite garments. Perhaps that's why I love sewing so much – you can have your clothes just the way you like them!

Sophie's Note

I've made quite a few quilts through the years, and this one is my new favorite. I think it adds a lot of character to the room.

Sophie's Note

This chic tote bag is perfect for almost any occasion. I've brought it along to the beach as well as the office. It's a perfect companion, and the fact that I made it myself makes it even more special!

Sophie's Note

Having made a nice Tote Bag for myself, of course I also wanted to personalize it with my own label. Especially since the OPAL™ sewing machine made everything so easy!

Sophie's Note

If sewing makes a house a home, then a label makes a quilt your own! So I made one, and thanks to the OPAL™ sewing machine, it was actually quite easy!

Sophie's Note

I remember making this dress for my oldest daughter. It was really heartwarming to see her dancing around in it – she was so happy!

Sophie's Note

I just love how sewing can make other pastimes more fun as well! Such as when we sew these matching aprons – with them, we enjoy baking even more!

Sophie's Note

I remember sewing this tablecloth when I was on my maternity leave. No wonder it always reminds me of how much I love my children. I'm glad we spend so much time together in the kitchen.

Sophie's Note

There's nothing I love more than seeing my children play around in clothes that I've made. This polka dot dress is my latest creation. I can't believe how easy and fun it was to make!

Sophie's Note

I made this Scotty Dog Pillow for my kids, but it makes us all smile. And he's pretty convenient – he stays on the sofa most of the time!

Multi-color Quilt


When Sophie created this beautiful bedspread quilt, piecing was done easily using the SEWING ADVISOR® feature. Sophie simply selected the material and the sewing technique, and the SEWING ADVISOR® automatically determined all the settings. In addition, the large sewing area provided plenty of space for the stippling.

Patchwork Tablecloth


Sophie simply touched Woven Medium and Seam in the exclusive SEWING ADVISOR® to start piecing her large patchwork tablecloth. At the end of each seam she would touch the Automatic Thread Cutter and the thread ends were drawn to the backside of the fabric. As she approached the final assembly, Sophie was happy she had the 8" (200mm) large sewing area that fit her tablecloth.

Personalized Quilt Label


When Sophie created a label for her multi-colored quilt, the built-in sewing fonts truly came in handy – not to mention the monochrome touchscreen making programming even easer! While sewing the quote, the OPAL™ 670 sewing machine alerted Sophie that she was about to run out of thread, but since there's always enough thread on the bobbin to finish the present stitch, she was able to sew the first row of lettering before winding a new bobbin. Another great built-in assistance feature!


Striped Tote with a Bow


Being a mother of two with a busy schedule means you always have a lot to carry, so Sophie made herself a beautiful tote bag. Using the built-in Sewing Fonts, Sophie personalized a label and – in addition – she added some extra 7mm wide decorative stitches for the perfect finish!


Tote Bag Label


When Sophie created a label for her Tote Bag, the built-in sewing fonts of course came in handy. In addition, seeing the text appear in real size on the Monochrome touch screen before sewing made programming as easy as could be. Sophie also made sure to save her stitch program in one of the OPAL™ 670 sewing machine's many memories. And towards the end, when the thread was about to run out, Sophie was saved by the Bobbin Thread Sensor. To think – sewing a quote could be that easy!


Black & White Bow Shirt


So much fabric, so little time! Sophie´s grateful for the exclusive SEWING ADVISOR® feature. It sets the OPAL™ machine automatically to ensure the best results – even in stretch materials, such as the one Sophie used here. What a time-saver!

"Like Mother, Like Daughter" Aprons


Baking together is fun for Sophie and the kids, but creating matching aprons takes the fun to a whole new level! Choosing stitches for the aprons was easy as Sophie could see the 7mm decorative stitches in real size on the Monochrome Screen before sewing them. And, of course, Sophie also loves the convenience of the SEWING ADVISOR® feature when assembling her projects!


Explore the project

Scotty Dog Pillow


Sophie thought it would make her kids smile to have a playful Scotty Dog pillow for the living room couch. While piecing the pillow, Sophie frequently used the Automatic Thread Cutter. She then went on to enhance the whimsical pillow with beautiful 7mm decorative stitches. And with all the built-in assistance, everything became so easy it almost felt like magic!


Black & White Polka Dot Dress


When Sophie's daughter saw this dress in a magazine, she begged mom to make it! The exclusive SEWING ADVISOR® feature especially saved time and effort as this dress is made of stretch material. Sophie simply selected the material and sewing technique, and the SEWING ADVISOR® instantly set the sewing settings for her.


Explore the project

Red & White Polka Dot Dress


Sophie could not make one daughter a dress without making the other daughter one too! Luckily, mastering the art of great buttonholes was easy using the Sensor One-Step Buttonhole Foot. Sophie simply selected Buttonhole from the SEWING ADVISOR® feature and followed the instructions on the Graphic Display – and voilà: there she had perfectly balanced buttonholes!
