I spent some time this weekend checking out all the cool stitching patterns available on my sewing machine. I rarely use the special features on my machine but I wanted to see the possibilities for embellishments now that I am working on some smaller things like pouches and bags, so I found some interesting things!
I made a little stitch reference booklet so I would have something made with real thread.
It was also an exercise in overcoming perfectionism as I ended up with some “pages” that weren’t all the same size, a couple of times I stitched something I really didn’t like so I actually just crossed those out rather than starting the pages over again, and once I ran out of stabilizer some of the designs bunched up a bit, but overall it was a freeing experience … LOL
Here’s a video of my little booklet if you’re interested in how it turned out.
