First I had to clean my machine though. If you participated in any of the felted sweater projects, I suggest you do the same! Mine filled up with lint very quickly with all those sweaters running through it!
Then I had to figure out how to get the foot on the machine using only a small (bad) drawing as my instruction. I figured it out eventually, after dismantling a few things!
Then I went nuts! Free motion sewing is so much fun! I will definitely have to think up some new projects so I can do this some more. I think I was probably going too fast, my stitches got a little big in some places and honestly I was scared I was going to sew myself a couple times. So next time slow and steady is the plan.
Here was my first attempt at some free motion embroidery. Looks a little childish, I think I need a little practice!
So that's what I've been up to. Not cleaning, doing laundry or putting away Christmas decorations. Just playing!
