Capture the Moment

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Stitching his eyebrow :) I have trouble stitching in a straight line. I'm also proud of coloring, especially since I've haven't picked up a pencil color since I was a kid. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I hate to say if I can do it, you can too... But it's true! I'm not a free motion person, but now that I've tried it, I'm eager to learn more free motion stitching.

What you will need

  • Sewing Machaine
  • Cotton Fabric
  • stabilizer
  • fuseable fleece
  • black thread and pencil colors
