Halloween ScanNCut & Embroidery Project

Halloween is a fantastic time to customise something unique for yourself, your kids or your loved ones. We have decorated a basic black witches hat, plain t-shirt and tote bag with a Trick or Treat embroidery and ScanNCut design that you can download for free! Plus, we have also used the Brother Persona PRS100 to add some extra embroidery designs from Urban Threads and John Deer’s Ultimate Stash.

Customising with our free-arm embroidery machines

The free-arm embroidery machines, including the PRS100, PR670e and the PR1050X are ideal for projects like this where you need to embroider hard to reach or small areas.

We have also used the Echidna Hooping stations to get the perfect placement for our embroidery. These hooping stations can be used for all hooping projects large or small.

Standard Embroidery Machine Hooping Tricks

If you have a standard embroidery machine a great trick for embroidering those hard to reach areas is to hoop up a piece of stabiliser (Black or White cutaway) to your embroidery hoop.

Now use some double sided tape to stick to the back of your project and onto the stabiliser to keep it in place.

halloween-embroidery-machine-4

Place some Echidna Supersolv Topping on top and embroider a baste stitch around the embroidery hoop, which will secure your bottom stabiliser to your garment. You can now embroider your designs with ease.

ScanNCut Design

You can either plug in the ScanNCut file directly into your ScanNCut machine or download the ScanNCut CanvasWorkspace file to alter the design online.

We have flipped this ScanNCut file for use with the Flex Fabric Transfers and used a Teflon Applique Mat to place over the design while ironing it onto the front of our shirt.

However, there are many more ways you can decorate your projects with the ScanNCut accessories available online, which is why the ScanNCut CanvasWorkspace is ideal for everyone!

Echidna Christmas Costume Party

We all love a good costume party and for the staff here at Echidna Sewing it was a chance to unleash some of our creative goodness. The theme of the night was Retro 50’s so the ideas for costumes ran wild. Different plans for sewing, embroidering and crafting all came to mind, especially with the incredible Brother machines sitting right at our doorstep. In the end there was a good mixture of outfits, which were all well thought about and planned to perfection.

Gary and Cindy, the owners of Echinda Sewing, converted their backyard into a 50’s diner with a bar, popcorn machine, jukebox and disco lights. As soon as we walked through the door we were transported back to the 50’s in epic style.

So without further ado, I bring you the photos of the night, including what we wore and how we created it (if it was handmade).
