Free Hand Machine Embroidery

6 Apr

Once again it was off to the jubilant heights of Half Penny Home HQ in Creeting St Mary for some crafting. This time it was for Free Hand Machine Embroidery with 4 other ladies.

This is now my favourite favourite new craft!

I had so many – to many, ideas whizzing around for my makes, so much so I found it hard to produce a piece that was cohesive.

Nicola had a wealth of materials we could use; fabrics, paper, ribbon, yarns you name it.

We started with getting a feel for the machine and technique.
Swiggles and Swirls, holding the hop and control.

Then it was on to appliqué practice or technique practice for our main project.

I decided on a birdie. I’ve tried to add texture with the ribbon feather wings and yarn branch.

And my final piece well of course that had to be …

I added a few hand sewn touches when I got back home… You can just see the little beads on the table cloth, then the extra flower which has ribbon and tulle behind it for texture and the chain stitch flower on the teapot.

I found it so enjoyable I didn’t want to stop playing but feared reaching that point of overdoing something and spoiling it.

I can’t wait to get my machine back and give this ago again.
It’s a craft that has so many applications when you put your mind and creativity to it. Thanks once again Nicola for those handy tips and the confidence to try something new.
