When I first started doing freehand machine embroidery on water-soluble fabric I made a lot of mistakes. In this post I chat about one mistake in particular. The mistake relates to drawing on water soluble fabric, a troublesome issue for many.

Thank you for all who read their way down to the end of my last post - it was much longer than first anticipated! I hope you've enjoyed visiting the blogs I nominated (apologies in advance for the Google-suggested translation for a certain sentence in Ingrid's post - I have suggested an alternative to Mr Google, but he's ignored me so far!). Right, where were we...free machining, I think! In class we have been continuing to practice our free machining skills, now using free motion stitching…

This embroidery is created by collaging hand dyed or printed fabrics and papers to form a background, then the pink flowers and other flowers and leaf details are then stitched into the background using my Juki sewing machine and appliquéd fabrics. The embroidery measures 15cm by 15cm and the outside of the off white mount measures 25cm x 25cmPostage is first class, I try and post out the day

Free motion embroidery, free motion sewing, or raw edge applique allows you to turn one your favourite pictures or sketches in a piece of fabric art. This technique provides you with full control over the picture - by dropping the feed dogs on your machine you guide your picture through your sewing machine to create the look you want. For your background fabric, choose something firmly woven such as calico, cotton or even linen.
