"Don’t try to make life a mathematics problem
with yourself in the center
and everything coming out equal.
When you’re good, bad things can still happen.
And if you’re bad, you can still be lucky."
a little spot for hidden journaling, under fabric folds (closed view below)
9x12" watercolor paper, fabric, paper, thread
A little bit of everything, including a photograph of bicycles in Munich from our trip last summer, fabric from the kids clothing when they were little(r), an ATC, cardstock, an acrylic leaf print. Plus there's a lift up spot of white cotton for hidden journaling (thoughts on hidden journaling here).
I want to figure out how to "freestyle" stitch - I can see that you can't have the standard foot down, or the feed dog or whatever it's called because then the fabric feeds a certain way and there's friction. But if you have the foot thing up the machine sort of vibrates and so maybe there is an attachment that keeps the fabric flat but doesn't feed it? Anyone with knowledge in this area, chime in!
