I challenged myself to do freehand machine embroidery, since I'm doing the All Boards in a Year Craftalong, and went for recipe labels for the recipe binders I was making. I basically just turned the stitches down to very close to one another, grabbed some felt, and went for it.

Here's the first, on it's recipe binder:

And the second, on its own

I practiced with my initials.

I like the rustic look of the lettering, but if I did another set I would probably use some sort of stabilizer behind the felt.

The full recipe binder project is here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362166.0

I never thought to use my zig zag to make letters!!  Pretty good idea and I also like that rustic look!
