To be honest with you I really just want to show off this great purse. It's for my Mother. She has known it's been coming for the last two years. Better late than never I always say. What do you know? It's done just in time for Mothers Day on Sunday. Happy Mom's Day. What are you getting your Mother or what do you want your kids to do for you?
You're thinking to yourself it's Friday, what does this purse have to do with you talking about sewing machines? It has everything to do with it. You sewing machine has a lot more stitches than the one that you all use, the straight stitch.
I bet your machine has stitches that you have never even used. I know mine does. The above purse has all kinds of decorative stitches going down the seams and on the top of the inside pockets. My friend used 30 weight thread and made the stitches wider to accommodate. Lets take a closer look at some of the yummy stitches that she used. Do you use words like yummy to describe non food items?
Look at how the stitch stands out against the cherry and lime fabric. Not sure that a 50 weight thread would have stood out as nicely.
Here are even more of the stitches. The red on red works because of the thread choice.
Here is a stitch chart that gives you the name and what the stitch is used for.
I encourage you to play with your decorative stitches and see what you might come up with. Why not get your walking foot out the next time you have a smaller quilts that needs quilting and play around. Just might come up with something fresh and creative.
Are you the adventurous type that likes to think out of the box? Then why not write a blog post about it. Remember it is all about sharing. Love to hear what you have to say good or bad.
Are you a fan of Qubee Quilts on Facebook? You will want to be on Monday, May 17th. Why you ask? It's something good I promise.
I will leave you with this. It was just to cute and I had to share.
Until next time,
