nydiak I'm pretty sure tonight's pizza night. I have never sewn with leather but this has to happen. asap. I am in love with exlibris by #alisonglass 4d
  •   hayleysews I tried taping the foot, I tried changing the tension to every possible setting, I tried using a walking foot, I used a leather needle and big stitch length. And my seams still looked crappy. If you master it I want to know HOW!! I know it's possible, I just can't seem to figure it out at allllll 4d
  •   gildedthread @oneshabbychickhawaii does the Teflon foot work significantly better than the walking foot? That's what I've used so far but can't seem to get my tension right 4d
  •   alisonharle Looks beautiful 4d
  •   oneshabbychickhawaii @gildedthread I'm not sure. I usually just use my Teflon zipper foot do you mean for your top stitching? Or just in general? I haven't really had any trouble. 4d
  •   gr8manythings I use a regular foot, size 18 shmetz leather needles, and #46 nylon bonded thread. My secret recipe. #shmetzistheshmetz 4d
  •   nydiak @gr8manythings thanks for sharing your tip! I appreciate it. 4d
  •   iamkateyz Is one of those for my upcoming birthday? 4d
  •   nydiak @iamkateyz haha yes the invisible one. It's amazing ;) 4d

nydiak I spent like 4 hours wasting time... followed by impulsively cutting a porthole out of some amazing double gauze, to make a state embroidery into a pillow, thinking I'm totally a genius... Only to be pissed I cut a hole into amazing double gauze and I think it looks stupit. That's right stupit with a t. I can't wait to see what I f*up next. Lol. #someideasarebad #atleastitried 5d
  •   entropyalwayswinsblog You know stupit and stupendous are soooo close in spelling and in execution. It's not that bad and you have to be bold to move forward, no? 5d
  •   nydiak @entropyalwayswinsblog awe you so sweet and encouraging. I actually found another fabric for the circle... So it won't go to waste. Most of my favorite things come from solving a mistake. Thanks for your sweetness. 5d
  •   sewruthie @nydiak I just got the patterns today!! Thank you so much! And I'm so sorry that they were returned to you, it doesn't make any sense! 5d
  •   nydiak @sewruthie yay! I'm happy they arrived save and sound! 5d
  •   modernbasics Love! 5d
  •   sewmama123 Oh just give it a good lick and you'll be smiling in no time!!! Bwahahaha!!! 5d
  •   fairlymerry Someone once told me 'it's not a mistake, it's a delightful dilemma' that always stuck with me as a way to solve my own stupits 5d
  •   nydiak @fairlymerry it's a great way to look at it 5d

nydiak I'm pretty sure I have an Ivy League dog on my hands... Well at least she always has something to entertain herself with. 2w
  •   nydiak @greeneyesmcgee me either! She's the first. Lol 2w
  •   jmzblond My red husky does this. I've yet to catch him on camera ... Probably due to my inability to stop laughing long enough 2w
  •   nydiak @jmzblond I was lucky enough to have my phone in my hand at the time. :) it's so entertaining to me too. 2w
  •   bijoulovely My dog does this too! 2w
  •   pippinsequim We pause the TV when our dog does this! It's quality entertainment. I think my favorite is when he goes "oh, I know!!!" and drops his tail to turn and snatch it on his other side. 2w
  •   elmcreekquilts Haha 2w
  •   matobsgirl Game changing activity! Too funny 2w
  •   gabrien Your dog looks so much like mine!!!! Cutey 4d

nydiak This was the first medallion I stitched up when I was testing the pattern.... Unfortunately I had to remove the feather stitch from the design because I wasn't satisfied with the coverage. My pre-sale for these is still open... you can see the updated design earlier in my feed. They are $10 including shipping and will ship out by May 5th. Leave paypal if you want one or 200 :). #nydiakehnle #embroidery 2w

nydiak Have you guys thought about teacher gifts yet? I can't believe I forgot about this project... Over a year ago, I had my daughter stitch these pencils that are part of my #alisonglass crafts embroidery pattern. I then created a cute patchwork school themed zipper pouch. I think its a cute way of letting your kids share in the gift making. #teachergifts #embroidery #zipperpouch #sewing 2w

nydiak I have so many projects in the works and It's such a bummer not to be able to share in the moment... So I decided to find some pretties from the past. I love this detail photograph I shot for the #alisonglassapplique book. #LuckySpool #Thread #Embroidery #Perlecotton #weeksdyeworks 2w
