Now I am no Poppy Treffry....

but having seen her fabulous ideas I wanted to have a go at this free motion embroidery but there was a few problems...

a) I didn't know what I was supposed to be doing
b) I only have a very basic machine and cant lower the feed dogs on it
c) I didn't do much research into how its done
d) I am impatient and want to have a go now!

So here is my attempt at Free motion embroidery, please be kind its my first go at it!

What do you think, do you think Poppy Treffry should be worried?


  1. This is fabulous :) this is a brilliant first attempt.. and yes.... Poppy should be worried! ;) xxx

  2. Yes Poppy will be worried and I am worried too ... it is fantastic and quite spooky to see all my fabrics there! Love the idea well done you! H x

  3. Wow, that is fantastic - what a fab first attempt.
