Yesterday I finally did something crafty. Maybe my craft room has been clean long enough. Although I did pretty good at putting everything away after I was done.
I pulled out the sewing machine
I've been wanting to try free motion embroidery for a long time and I finally decided to do it. Free motion embroidery is kind of like drawing with your sewing machine. First to get a feel for it I just moved the hoop around and scribbled on the fabric. Then I cut out some felt pieces and outlined them on the machine to make an acorn.
Next I drew a a pumpkin shape. As an experiment I shaded it with markers. The reason the colors are running is because I also decided to see what it would do if I sprayed it with water and then I tried spraying it with alcohol. Now I know what it does. It makes a mess
Oh and to answer the question why did I do it? Well...
I've also been wanting to try making some fabric postcards and I thought I could turn this into one. I still need some practice but I think this could be fun. Now I just need to come up with some designs to do.
