Trying to work out how to recreate a fine silk edging as in the photos attached.
I dare to ask, because of the wide background in all the crafts that are exhibited here, but above all the imagination and problem solving that seems to go with it.
My best thought so far is, because of the lock-stitch that appears down the centre, it might have been made on an early form of ‘overlocker’(UK) or ‘serger’(USA).
If any sewers on the forum think that this is so, and better still tell me how it might be done/programmed into such a machine, please let me know.
As I shall be needing this at the rate of about a yard per fan, the ability to produce it myself, on demand, would be the way I would prefer to go.
If I have to invest in an electronic/programmable embroidery machine, so be it, as there will be other output that will be relevant to what I’m trying to achieve.
I’m assuming I would process it on a piece of material, which would then be removed, like a soluble web.
