How to sew an emblem

By spotogspindel | November 28, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I changed the school name to PAN 🙂


I freestyled the machine-embroidery. Basically using a zig-zag stitch of various width with the feed-dogs running at a button-hole-pace. I guess the freestyle is moving it along along a pre-drawn pattern with one hand on the width-button, gradually shifting as I sew along.


From a distance I think it will look convincing enough. Maybe a silly thing to spend time on, but interesting to explore the technique. And you know: it´s all in the details! 😀
