Today, my husband and I celebrated 25 years together! How about that!
A while ago, he bought me a free motion embroidery foot. I tested this out on an ATC (artist trading card) measuring 2.5 x 3.5 cm and the ATC travelled all the way to Australia. Meanwhile a second ATC was deliberately left somewhere to be found. To remind you what my ATC looked like, here it is:
Hopefully you can already see an improvement in my free motion embroidery with my feather:
Silly me, I hadn’t realised my sewing machine already had a free motion embroidery foot – I’d never used it before, nor had a need to (oh, and i’ve just found an overlocker!). I’ve been spending ages trying to work out what S1 and S2 were – which was so I could do overlocking in the first place. But now, success. Finally solved the problem.
So to commemorate this amazing bit of progress, I thought I’d share with you my first machine embroidered feather and hope you like it. At least you will be able to spot my progress when I share with you more elaborate designs. But as the saying goes, you have to start somewhere!
