|I made this for a friend's little girl (who would be grown up now!) and when I look at it now I think 'how did I do that?' The little dress lifted up and there were little undies and a tummy underneath and her hat was all puffy and 3 dimensional, and her plaits were made out of wool.|
During the making of the last apron with the Koala and Cockatoo, and the trouble I had doing the applique stitch around curves and corners etc, I had an urge to 'drop the feed dogs' and have a go at free motion machine embroidery...I didn't know anything about it or even know what it was called until a couple of weeks ago and when I tried it I couldn't work out exactly how to do it, or if I needed a special foot for it or none at all etc etc etc.
Yay, now I could play!!! And OH what fun it is....like drawing with a sewing machine!
