Fun stitches

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The ability to use many of the decorative stitches that my sewing machine has and to create beautiful art fabric with it. I plan to turn the piece into a bag. You can make your stupendous stitching project into any useful item. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was in the market for a new sewing machine, upgrading from a mechanical Janome with just 7 stitches. I signed up for the class first to get ideas on how to use decorative sewing machine stitches since I was planning to get a computerized machine. I looked at many models with 30-60 stitches and ended up buying a Janome DC 5100 with 167 stitches. I got a good idea how what type of stitches I liked and decided to get a machine with more stitches so there were more possibilities. Doing a stitch bible was a good exercise, even if it took a while to finish. I got the Creative Feet Pearls and Piping foot and Sequins and Ribbon foot. I think they were very helpful in my project and fit on my Janome, no problem. I was able to find a great deal on eBay.
