    I've always wanted something different in a jacket, so I had and image and an idea and passed it on to my sister. She does embroidery work on the side and this is the result. I think it's cool:

    she might, it was a little tough to do this design as her machine had a hard time with the lines. so far is this is the most elaborate design she has done. thanks for the compliment.

    that is a great idea, a couple of jobs would cover the cost of the correct sewing machine.
    a coat matching the pinstriping on your car would be a very nice item.

    I think she may have just found a new source of side income if she wants. She could make some bitchin' club jackets.

    Nice job! I bought my wife an Embroidery machine and know it will take more than a few jackets to pay for the machine. I spent enough money on hers to buy a rebuilt Flathead. So far she has only done one job for me! :( These things require real effort to make something nice, especially when it's "custom" just like cars.....
  11. the jacket's nice ....but your sister now she's very nice

    You should re-post this in the upcoming Friday Art Show thread.
    Yes, this really is art. Fine art I might add.

    thats really kool, she should take orders!
  19. I'm with you, Mark. I'd gladly throw down for some new monkey togs from this lady.
    Tug on Mr. Zenor's coat tails about it and let's get on it before she gets too busy.

    JLOUIE- Your sis has talent. Nice work. Tell her I said so.

    I think it's cool, too.

    I think it's extra cool that the two of you did it yourselves.

    And it's extra super cool that your sister seems like a good sport with a nice smile.

    She did a great job on the jacket, May have her do one for me.

    How about a couple of shots of your sister wearing the jacket with some heels!!!:) Thought you could keep your sister under wraps!!

    Keep posting her work, I sure she could prolly fund your ride with the kick backs from all the HAMB work she will be doing.
    Good luck and remember the "posts", if ya know what I mean.:)
