Yesterday, I practiced free motion scribble stitching around some scrappy fused flower patches. Stitching with black thread was scary, but now after stitching a dozen flowers, I think I'm getting the hang of it. I was prepared to do my practice stitching and throw away my samples, but I really like them. So next week, I'll make them up into little zippered pencil cases. Stay tuned. Want to try it yourself?

At long last I have a new tutorial for you! This is a favourite design of mine, and was originally featured as part of a tutorial for a tote bag that was featured in Love Sewing magazine some time ago. Today I'm just going to show you how to create the stylish lady and her fabulous three dimensional frock, then you can decide if you would like to place her on a tote bag or maybe frame her. You will need: Medium weight plain fabric for the embroidery base (approx. 10 x 12 inches). Small piece…
