One of the most engaging projects you can do with an embroidery machine looks little like embroidery at all, in fact it's applique! Here I have digitized various circles for this table runner to have the look of hand work with a small blanket stitch around the circumference of each applique.
Here is an upclose of the stitching.. all done on the embroidery machine. Pretty nifty huh?? I really wanted it to have the feel of hand stiching and am quite happy with how it came out.
If you would like to see more of my embroidery work feel free to stop by my online storefront FRESH THREAD . You can also catch me in Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine on a pretty regular basis and download the current free deisgns I produce for them.
Do you have embroidery machine?.. do you want one?.. what is holding you back?
