A little bit of sewing...
Hi everyone - hope you're all having a great weekend. Weather not too bad here today.
I have been experimenting with free motion embroidery on my machine. I have already done one, but it was as part of a DT make - so watch this space next week!
I stamped the poppy image onto some cotton material that I had already backed with some stabilizer, then off I went onto my machine.
I find it very therapeutic doing this.
I cut the heart shape from the white cotton & some red for the backing using my dies & GC. Sewed it all up - remembering to leave a gap to put the wadding in, then finished off with a little hand sewing to close the gap.
I might use it as a pin cushion or I might just have it as a bit of home decor.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.
