Sewing and/or embroidery
« on: June 06, 2021, 11:09:06 am »
Is anyone else here into sewing/embroidery? I've sewn a few historical garments for re-enactment and just got into embroidery, here are my most recent achievements:

Edit for context- first picture are tekunpe, a sort of hand-warmer used by the Ainu, and the second is something I started by tracing a picture from my computer onto fabric :')

I end up sewing a lot, but its usually some caveman level stitching with an awl.

It’s not something I’m into myself but I like the end result of other people’s work. Yours looks good, keep sharing 👍

I've done some embroidery for fun. It's quite nice and always cool when you reach the end result

No, that is what an awl is mostly used for.  But I've put a denim sewing machine needle in mine and I use nylon thread to fix stuff like, shoes that are falling apart, modifying stuff like holsters, back packs, adding staps to things, and just touching up my clothes, as needed, fixing pockets, etc.  I used it to "embroider" my phone number into my dogs collar. 

I used to hand sew a bunch, and when whatever I was working on got too tough to push the needle through, I'd chuck it in some vice grips.  So I'd be pushing this through with vice grips, opening them and re-closing them every new stitch.  The awl is a fairly recent upgrade for me lol

So I'm not the only one that enjoys embroidering...? :D

I've been using pliers for sewing through leather, and just whenever it's too hard to get the needle through fabric. Sewing is an underrated skill
