I've decided to step outside of my quilting comfort zone by trying something new: Embroidery. I'm scared! I've never done it before. Are there any embroidery fans out there? Any tips you want to share with an anxious quilter?
I'm so use to making everything with my super fast 1,600-stitches-per-minute Pfaff Grand Quilter. Taking on a meticulously detailed embroidery project may bring my fast paced crafting to a halt! If it wasn't for this adorable sample pack of fabric called Little Apples (that happened to have embroidery as the main pattern), I wouldn't have taken the plunge into this new world of crafting...It's always the fabric that inspires me ;)
Despite my normally speedy crafting, I'm off to a slow start. :-} I've traced the embroidery design but for the past few days I've been hesitant on starting. Well, a little intimidated maybe. However, I plan to jump right into it tonight! Or maybe tomorrow tonight. We'll see. But once I start, I hope to get into the crafting zone.
On a completely different note, you might have noticed my fondness for skulls as shown in my fabric choice below. :) I don't know what it is...i just really like skulls. Anyway, I've started making a quilted tote bag out of this fabric and plan to eventually post the tutorial. It was hard to capture some of the photos for this bag and still make what I was doing understandable, so I'll probably end up making a little video to explain it better.
Anyways, wish me luck on my embroidery!
