cotton, thread, embroidery thread, Janome MC 5200
What was your inspiration?
I started making x-mas bags some years ago. Because special c-mas cloth is quite expensive I am using simple ones and applique or in this case embroider. This year I started to explore the stiches of my Janome MC5200.
What are you most proud of?
That I can give gifts in a gift ;-) and reuse every scrap of material
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Its not necessary to have an embroidery machine (although the deer from urbanthreads is too cute) You could easily make an application or use your decorative stiches to make litte stars or so. Even with a straight stich and a special thread you can create beautiful things. Just start.
