I'm trying to make one for my son. I don't understand! I have an embroidery machine but I can't figure out how to do it. Please explain. I'm so excited about making this. How many hours do you have in this? What is the glass used for.

We use ourselves software to turn a photo into a dst file,and then you can make it with your machine.I’m trying to sale the service and finished embroidery in Wish or ebay.But for American embroidery machine user, You need lots of threads in different colors.Maybe 40-90 colors every photo. So tell me what type of thread you had or easy to buy.and Email me your son's photo , I will turn the photo into dst.It's free rightnow ,but if you need Chinese thread which is 1$ per 3000yards ,I can help you to buy it in China.

Maybe you can share where you got the easel from. Or if you made it yourself, then a little sketch?

ThomasK19 (author)Hanchey632016-02-13

The glass works as half-transparent mirror. It's set in the angle of 45 deg between pad and the embroidery. When you look down through the glass you see the reflection of the pad as well as at the right position the embroidery below. So you're able to make exact stitches.

Painters have used that technique since (I guess) 16/17th century.

Note. It must not be exactly 45 degrees. But the angle between glass and embroidery and the one between glass and pad must be the same.

Bingo! you are right!My English is poor in writing,Thanks for your explanation.
