Free Motion Embroidery
Beforehand, I decided to make a little example to show her. Now, I am not an expert on free-hand work as previously noted but I do enjoy it. I suppose I just don't find that I need to do it that often so I am still in 'wobbly picture' mode. I would like to think that I could get away with calling in 'naive'!!!
As I was embroidering a single layer and I still had fresh in my mind my machine eating up a thin jersey recently I decided to use a stabilizer. However I didn't have stabilizing material so I decided to use grease proof paper. This worked very well with regards to keeping the fabric lovely and taut for doodling on but removing it did snag a few stitches.
