Free motion embroidery

Hi! 

Just wanted to make a quick post to show you what I have been working on today!!!

It has been a long time I had wanted to try to make a little brooch using the free embroidery technique. Every time I see a picture of one, I try to guess how it has been made, what type of support one is supposed to use etc.
Needless to say, the fabrication secrets stay, well, secret this way! 

Anyway, today I thought I would try to create one even though I had no idea really of how to make it! I threaded my sewing machine, got my darning foot on and whoosh! I started to sew 🙂

 And here is the result, it is a bit wonky and full of imperfections, but still extra small and cute 🙂

The real difficult part for me is to get a nice back when I addd the tiny brooch bit. 

 

Then, I tried to make another one, a pliable portrait. It ended up being too big for a brooch, so I turned into a framed artwork instead.

It might not stay in this frame as I really like when I can see more of the orange fabric. Maybe mounted on a square canvas might really be cute. 

 

Wishing you all a good night (or day)

🙂

  1. the portrait looks so pretty and i guess is great to be on a frame for admiration.. I’ve done free motion stitching before.. but with not much of a success.. what you’ve created is just so beautiful.. 😉

    1. Thank you 🙂
      Free motion is a bit difficult to handle in the beginning, But it s like everything I guess, the more you try, the better you become 🙂 I am still learning to use this technique and I love it as it allows for so much freedom 🙂
