A few posts back I showed you the card that I made for my Mum for Mothers day, I have been playing around with machine embroidered cards for a year or two, they are fun to make and never fail to impress people so I thought I’d attempt to show you how it is done.
I have a machine embroidery foot for my sewing machine which is great because it allows you to move the fabric smoothly around and it is not gripped in place. Before I had the special foot I used to just take the foot off my machine and work without one. (if you do this remember to still put the foot down so that the machine works properly)
You just move the fabric backwards and forwards as you sew, some times it can be a bit wobbly but I think that adds to the design, also you can go over the stitches several times to make them really stand out. I use an air erasable marker pen to write the name before I embroider it on
