Wasn't sure if this is the right place to put it as it was done by a sewing machine by moving it around!? I think you guys call it freehand or motion maybe?! Anyway let me know if I need to move it elsewhere!



on the back it says bumslap! And this one is a woman punching someone but I now realise like a year later that's really not obvious at all!



I also made a blanket with angry animals sewn onto it by machine (was for an exhibition not for a child, that would be odd!) which took absolutely forever to do which I'll post if I can find a photo of it!

found the photo of the blanket I made, now looking at it, its not actually that great but gfndgjndfd did it take what seemed like forever to do so feel like it deserves a 2nd airing
(was in an exhibition the first time around!)





It says 'One day our time will come & when it does we will be merciless' hence the angry cute faces  Grin & the wallpaper it was hung on says pretty much the same thing but screenprinted instead which also took....FOREVER!

I enjoy doing freeform sewing machine embroidery - this is inspirational! I started off with just simple star shapes but have yet to do anything this complicated...!
Did you draw it out on the material first or use paper for templates?  I will be in total awe if you tell me you just winged it!!

aw thanks! nnoo I couldn't of winged it, I drew the designs onto tracing paper which I pinned onto the fabric & then sewed away, theres probably a more accurate way of doing it but I did this a while ago basically at the start of me getting into sewing & making so it was all a bit bish bash bosh.....not that its not like that still  Grin
