A variety of stitching

24th June 2013

I have had a brilliant afternoon being creative with fabrics/yarns I dyed last week.





                                           White muslin

                                               Bamboo/silk knitting yarn

This picture was made by laying the yarn on Bondaweb in wavy lines, then I used the wavy stitch on my machine to secure. I backed a piece of the linen with Bondaweb then cut out a circle which I ironed on the thread backing. I then used variegated thread to make satin stitch lines. I am happy with the result.

For the next piece I backed various fabrics from my dyeing with Bondaweb and cut out circles . I layered them on a piece of calico.

Then I just had a great time playing with stitches, satin stitch binds the edges in various widths and lengths. I then free machined the shapes some with double thread. I think it took about 2 hours to complete the stitching but it was a very enjoyable 2 hours!!

I have lots of dyed fabric and yarn left so who knows what I will create next-watch this space!!


  1. I love this and it's a great way to experiment with different patterns

  2. It was so enjoyable and was good practise in free machining.
