haw - I made a Christmas present to myself, apparently?? xD

I've wanted to make myself a Forsaken jacket for ages, so now that I finally have an embroidery machine, I decided to make it my first project!

I've been torn on whether or not to place this in my Etsy shop?? I thought of just making a Horde and Alliance hoodie, but a friend had a good point - there are official products out there for faction jackets and for class jackets, but none for the specific races within WoW.

So I suppose I'll do it this way to gauge interest - if you're interested in your own custom hoodie for your favorite WoW race (yes, ANY race - human, dwarf, Forsaken, orc, etc.) please send me a note!

That's a really awesome idea :D How would you do the other races all special-like?

Would prolly just change the arm color for simplicity, lul. 'Less somebody had a special idea (which wasn't overly complicated) for their jacket.

Ohhh, I thought the arm break was a nod to the forsaken arms without flesh and stuff on them. Maybe different colours and like, ornamentation around the cuffs, like the rivets?

Haha, that actually was the original idea! Except I had originally intended to add shoe-lace like stitches, but don't that idea because it ended up looking odd. So I ended up thinking it looks generic-but-interesting enough that it could apply to any of them.

But different ornamentation is a good idea!

Thats a very cool idea and well done, I'm sure there will be alot of interest if you advertise in the right places.
Out of curiousity, what software did you use to digitize your image? and what kind of emb machien do you have.

Thanks a bunch! My machine is a a Brother PE500 (possibly the cheapest embroidery machine out there, loool) and I digitized it using Brother's embroidery program, PE Design.

oh nice! I have a Brother SE-400, it was a present from me to me about a year-ish ago lol
I havnt been able to find a software that is easy enough for me to use without screwing up too much though hehe, I have tried Embird but it was waaaaay too advanced for me. I have used SEU for anything else, its simple but there are lots of flaws when I do it, can't tell if its the software, the machine or me hehe, probly the last one :P
I may have to try and find the Brother PE Design program and give it a shot :D

Hmmm, unfortunately I think Embird and PE Design are about the same level of complexity/confusion. But it's always worth a try! :D
