Last year I made a gift for my daughter’s teacher, who was my son’s teacher, who happens to also be my husband’s aunty. Anyway, she’s special and I wanted to do something special. I’ve always wanted to try “drawing” with my sewing machine. It was a small space and I thought it would be faster than doing an appliqué. I really hate preparing my fabric for appliqué. It’s a Kukui leaf and nuts, which has special meaning to her and her class.
Until tonight, I had no idea there was such a thing as “free-motion embroidery.” I’ve been wanting to do more with it since this first project and now I’m really inspired! If only I had the time to go with it.
