I created a project for All Free Sewing this weekend. It’s national sewing month and when I was invited to share a project, I was pleased. All Free Sewing is one of my favourite sewing sites and a wonderful reference.
My project involves free motion machine applique. I’m not sure this is actually a technical term – but it’s what I call it when I lower my machine feed dogs, use the quilting or darning foot and applique my shapes to the background fabric.
I’ll come back soon with a proper step by step applique tutorial - once the project is published. But for now, check out the YouTube video which my daughter filmed while I sewed down a butterfly.
It’s our first YouTube video which is very exciting to my son. He watches Minecraft YouTube videos regularly so thinks that mum having something on YouTube is pretty cool.
