I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Here is my second free-motion embroidery made for the enchanting tapestrymlp:



While searching for ideas, I came across Stuart Craig's concept art and knew right away that I wanted to free-motion embroider the drawing. It has that sketchy look that I love, and I try to emulate that when I hand embroider things. But this image seemed like a good candidate for another go at free-motion embroidery, my second attempt, and I thought it could always be pitched if I screwed it up and then just hand embroider the thing. From having done it once before, I decided to order a darning foot for the sewing machine and save myself a lot of fidgety hassle. Man, that made a HUGE difference! And I didn't sew over my fingers. Yay. The finished piece fits into an 8x10 frame (I sent that, too. Who wants an unfinished project?) and stole that first picture from tapestrymlp.


That pic mine. can't you tell?

Lessons learned-

1. Breaking down and spending that whopping $9 on the darning foot made free-motion embroidery so much easier. Who would've thought?

2. Sewing shadows is hard.

HERE is what she sent me!  Kiss

Wow, what a masterpiece!

And now,on to the web to discover what is a darning foot. It seems like something I could use.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It's beautiful!
And free-motion machine embroidery looks so difficult to me.
Great job!

So, so awesome. I should really cough up the $9. Though I still won't be able to work magic like this. Wonderful work!
