Free Motion Embroidery Samples

The FME class took place over four weeks, with lessons being send out each week. Janet Clark our teacher lead of through a series of exercises to get the feel of working in free form. Above is a sample of one of our exercises.

As the lessons progress I found my control of the stitching and my skills started to improve.

The photos of the Tulips are from week 4 and the last lesson. We were instructed to print a photo onto cloth and then using the sewing machine add texture, and dimension to the photograph.

  1. The kaleidoscope photos were interesting, especially the tar pits. Your free form stitching and tulips are lovely, I think you did a wonderful job on them. Wish it were something I were doing!
