Prince*,you might want to try two different techniques-one is called the French knot and the other is the chain stitch. Those would probably work perfectly with that design. You could also look around for something similar to the halo in the form of an iron-on transfer to acheive the look if it doesn't work well off-hand.

Here's a link to step-by-step instructions: http://www.sublimestitching.com/tyt.html

Just scroll down to where you see the techniques on the left. They also have transfers available if you need one.


If you guys want some interesting staining/coloring tips-try using tea. Leave on according to what hue you like best. Usually,the longer it stays on,the darker the hue will be. Has beautiful,worn,vintage-like effects.

Alejandro*,that sounds quite Dries Van Noten-esque!

Thanks Scott!, I so want to wear it, but im waiting for the moment... its starting to get cold in here, and I spend a lot of time doing scarves, because they are just a simple stripe, no busy patternmaking, and they always look nice.

I was starting to think about making skinny scarves out of olive-acid green silk, and add faux garnet and peridot beads at the end, some sort of degrade technique, because I was thinking of a five inches wide scarve, so, because its made of silk, it will be lightweight, and its going to go flying if I dont put something heavy on the ends... but that was just an idea... Im going crazy with colours this season

Prince, Im so interested in that idea of a tux with the noir chat applique, I find it very Cabaret and I that...

I actually had an idea that come to me right after posting. I was thinking of using olive drab fabrics from an old army jacket or sweater,maybe even socks(which I have tons of)and embroider deer and bare trees that could remind one of Goldfrapp's Felt Mountain and a little bit folkloric fairy tails.

same for you Prince*. I hope you have fun and just lose yourself stitching nonstop-its fun and such a great escapism.

The reason I left a while ago is cause I ran across the street to Jezebel's which is the closest vintage store I have around, and I got the faux beading, and I saw this gorgeous slim and very long vintage clutch with gold lock and peach silk lining...only for five dollars... I think Ill go back in a while and get it

I your idea Scott, by the way, do you handsew or you have a machine??

I do everything by hand. I do! I was never comfortable in front of a machine at all. I grew up around all this crafty stuff(mostly handwork) so it comes naturally for me.

That is great to know, Im scared to death of sewing machines, especially the industrial ones that I have to use... I sew by hand also, which I think its more preciated than a 15 minute labour in a machine...

I've always hated machines...

I've found a nice cheap jacket for me to practice on before I get stuck into a real tuxedo...:

It's so huge this URL that I made it smaller

There's just something about machines that intimidate me-kind of complicated in a way especially if you're not too familiar.

Prince*,simple is definitely the best canvas for experimenting on. I'm using an old pillowcase to concoct my scarf creation on right now

I was thinking about doing a coat thing myself. Not really for embroidery but I was wanting to cut out seams and reconstruct this black coat that was my fathers--its extremely baggy and shapeless. The shoulder area and the side seams. Not sure if that requires a machine but I might try it by hand even if it does take a while. Anyway,I thought about attaching tea stained lace to the cuffs and maybe at the shoulder to give it sort of an Edwardian-buried beneath the soil-feel. I want the shape to kind of flare out beneath the hip. Its this volume thing I adore-fitted at top a little fuller(still narrow,of course)at the bottom. Now that I think,I might add some straight stitching along the back and that the cuff to give a little outlining and some extra "oomph".
