February! October 21, 2010

Filed under: October 2010,Sewing,Swaps — The Threaded Nest @ 8:21 am

I finally got to try my hand at a little raw edge applique comforstitching style (tutorial HERE)!

and I looooovve her!

Too bad she’s not for me =0(

But she is going to a really good home…

to my secret Scrappy { Hoops } Swap partner!

Looks like she’ll be put into a lovely bright red hoop 😀

This “February” embroidery pattern is from Sarah Jane Studios and can be purchased (HERE).

My only words of caution…

you MUST use a fusible stabilizer on the back of the linen

BEFORE you begin your free motion drawing with the sewing machine!!!

Happy stitching,

    Colette that is so cute…I don’t think my sewing machine is even capable of doing such things (at least not with me driving!) Well done.
