I have been playing with free motion machine embroidery.
I have used traditional casket designs for the Cabinet of Curiosities class and made a 21st century panel of stumpwork.
I have already filled a notebook with the pros and cons of materials and techniques.
I stitched a jacket for Ruthie. Too stiff.
Here I had success using shades of green to mimic 17th century leaves. Some of this is stitched in place, some just placed unstitched.
We’ll see if it translates to a casket.
What do you think?
