First off welcome DebJohn. It is my understanding that instructions only come with the purchase of the set. Having said that, I'd hoop tear away stabilizer, use a light batting and any non-woven material. stitch out, remove tear away stabilizer, clip on key ring and glue or stitch together, then trim close to the stitching.Shastasmom:
DebJohn, I think SiCK decided not to make the instructions available unless you buy the set, in the hopes that you would then buy the set. I think you'll find that all in the hoop designs have been test stitched out, as that is the only way that pics of them can be made available, unlike regular designs.annelies5:
Hi I checked. The instructions are available with the set. I am sure you either glue them together or use a sewing machine to stitch them together. Instructions are available for all ITH projects, Should you buy an ITH set without instructions, just contact Designsbysick, and I am sure they will see to it that you get instructions. I know I include instructions for all my ITH projects.DebJohn:
How do we make these? I have not found any instructions yet.DebJohn:
I don't know. The design page doesn't even mention if instructions are included. As a consumer, that wouldn't make sense to me. If I'm not confident I understand how to complete the project, I wouldn't buy. There have been things I've purchased in the past (other vendors) that the instructions were too confusing, or didn't have instructions, or additional supplies needed are no longer available for purchase.... Those projects are still buried in the UFO box and it makes me wary of buying things I can't figure out on my own. But plenty of other designs are in the POTW with sufficient information that we can buy and feel confident it will be within our ability to complete. Maybe SiCK just thought everyone already knew how to make these key chains and didn't think instructions were necessary. I'm still very new to machine embroidery techniques, 6 months, and have so much to learn before I can reliably guess at construction methods.DebJohn:
Hi ShastasMom, thanks for the ideas. My best guess was glue or maybe edge stitching the fob after folding it over. Looks like the test stitcher chose felt. Not so sure how well glue would work on felt. I really wish instructions were accessible before we decide to buy. Some of the instructions are in the 'articles' section, but many are not. Then I have to use a search engine to try to find someone else's instructions on a different vendor. website. Good that I find them, maybe not so good that I often end up buying that other vendor's design instead. But we spend so much time on the hourly hunts to get SiCK's designs. Then we hit a brick wall on how to use them. :( I'm really glad there is a forum here to see if someone else has made the project, and can advise on how to do this and get good results.RenGa:
The instruction is easy to understand, you need not worry. The final step of the ithkeychain is, that you glue the two ends together and let it dry.Leave a comment about this set on our forums
