What was your inspiration?
I'm happy to say my inspiration is Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching online Craftsy Course. I can't begin to tell you how many fabulous ideas and techniques I discovered from her class. Great teacher, fun personality. What a great class!
What are you most proud of?
I dropped the feed dogs on my sewing machine, and chnaged out my standard pressure foot for an open toe darning/quilting foot. I used a multi-color serger thread of bright pink, lime green, and cobalt blue for top thread and in the bobbin.
After taking Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching class, I had complete confidence to sew lines, circles, diamond shapes to quilt and decorate the exterior fabric for this winter white purse.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take Carol Ann Waugh's Stupdenous Stitching class and I'll bet your first night's sleep you'll be dreaming about lots of new stitches and techniques you want to try on your next project. Lots of fun.
