Finally made a Luna season 2+ patch, which was done as a commission. The The Latin says ‘Serve the Masses, Protect Dreams’. i really love how this came out at such a small size. This is only 3” in diameter so that it works on uniforms and other cool stuff.
Patch commission request for Fallout Equestria. Reference design is here. This took a half dozen attempts and iterations to make it look good, it was significantly harder than I expected, but I really like the design.
This is a test of the emergency Colgate system. This is only a test.
Making messenger bags for BronyCon and finally settled on this bag style after testing more than a dozen different designs for strength, waterproofedness (is that a word?) durability, and all that good stuff. They have to be able to protect all that bronycon swag along with your phone and drink (so it has a phone pocket and elastic bottle holder).
They aren’t as expensive as I expected to make (I was expecting a cost of around $30 each to make, and this is around $20ish), so they should be inexpensive if you want one for your BronyCon Swag. I won’t know actual final cost until I am done sewing them all, but they will probably go for between $20 and $30. If there’s a character (or cutie mark) you really want, please send me a note and I will try to make it for you and stick your name on it so you can pick it up at Bronycon booth 508 first thing when the con doors open.
The first one I made was for Texel of Egophiliac stream fame as Colgate was his favorite character last time I had a chance to visit Ego’s streams. Colgate was also one of the very first designs I made, so it was fitting to put her on the first bag I made (:
Angel Bunny Just Don’t care. Design by Sweet Cream and done with permission.
I am working on a big update to the MLP Eye Set that you can get from Ecrater or Etsy for $35. I am updating a bunch of existing designs to make them better (more durable, more show accurate, support additional fabric types) and adding more than a hundred sizes. I am also adding a few more characters.
The update should be out within a week. As usual, anyone who already has the set will get the update for free. Either re-download it from Etsy or I send an email with the updated set if you got it though Ecrater. Happy embroidering!
For anyone in the neighborhood, I will have a table with Sweet Cream at Mighty Con Comic Convention at the Dupage fairgrounds on Saturday. I won’t have my machine, but I will have lots of other stuff. Come say hi!
It’s no fun when your embroidery machine misbehaves. I need to put it in time out until it learns to grow up.
Was asked to make some TF2 patches for some ponies that cosplay as TF2 characters. Who am I to say no? If you would like one you can get one here.
I am the prettiest princess! Based on this.
I was asked to make the back of some patches match the front in colors, when the back is usually white. I found a place that sold prewound bobbins in red, so I ordered a ton so I could get a discount. (By the way, ‘a ton’ in this instance means a few thousand bobbins in different colors)
Bobbin thread doesn’t show though a patch in general, but a lot of light colors will take on a slight hue of the bobbin color if the bobbin color isn’t white; most noticeable in very bright sunlight, so making say, Rarity with red bobbin thread wouldn’t work but Pinkie is great!
So I made a Pile of of Pinkie Patches for Trotcon & BronyCon.
