I bought a free motion foot recently and had a go at writing using my sewing machine
I was pretty chuffed with my little trial run however tonight when I put the foot on again I wanted to neaten it up and use thinner material but I was having loads of trouble, thread coming up through the material lots of missed stitches etc.
I have given up for this evening because if I had continued I may just have tried to throw the machine out the window! ever have sewing sessions like that?
Well seeing as we had a new addition to the family I thought I had better add to the wall art, what do you think?
All you need is wooden or papier mache letters
glue with a varnish added in, you can buy this already mixed.
some thin paper.
Apparently some people rip the paper and others cut it up. I never knew there was different ways of doing it so I have always just ripped the paper up and I quite like the result
If you decopatch as well do you cut or tear? which end result do you prefer?
In other news I am still knee deep in sewing up my sons quilt, I had started but I am now having to unpick quite a few stitches. I am now taking bets to whether the quilt will be completed by christmas 😉
