A few weeks ago my niece Lucy asked if she could borrow my machine to make some lace for her a project for college. She knew I had a free motion embroidery foot for my new machine. Little did she know that I also had one for my 16 year old Janome, which had never been used. Well, not properly. I think I fastened it on once but never got any further than that!
So she set about moving the hoop around – she had some wash away film fitted to a regular embroidery hoop – and in no time at all made this!! She used embroidery thread and kept adding tiny scraps of fabric as she went. How clever!
I think it would benefit from a few days between a couple of heavy books, but I was amazing at how easy it was, and you don’t need a fancy machine to do it. Just one where you can drop the feed dogs and attached a free hand embroidery foot to.
And as usual Rory, like any other cat, likes to get in on the action.
Tempted to have a go? I am!
