Machine Embroidery Book and Doodles


Two pages I missed from Sketchbook 9. The page above is a shape challenge using the metal cutters and the one below I did for a sketchbook challenge called 'pathways' - except I didn't post it.


More C&G work, this time a machine embroidery book, experiments of different stitching techniques. I used to have a machine that did small embroidered motifs like the flowers on the front of this fabric book. I don't have that machine any more, as I broke it by sewing through lots of painted collaged papers which were very stiff and they weren't dry enough. I think the glue stuck to the needle which made it hard work for the machine and eventually it wore the motor out. I still sew collaged papers but I am more careful.





there are more pages which I will post another day

  2. What a unique book! It would be so fun to look through...I think experimenting with embroidery in mixed media would be so fun!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today! :)
