Freehand machine embroidery

It might sound self contradicting, but there is a lot more manual work needed for this than it might seem. I don’t have a fancy sewing machine mine is a plain and hard working one that is more than enough for my needs. But that also means that when I want to make something other than bowls and bags its not an easy task.



Maybe it was my short trip to London that gave me a little preview of spring that inspired me or maybe it was just the thought of warmer and lighter days ahead… either way I suddenly got the urge to sew birds.


One bird turned into two, and three, and then fox saw the light of day followed by a bulldog and a dachshund.


I mounted them on scraps of leather, denim and linen before sewing small zippered purses. Hopefully I’ll be able to show you the rest later this week, but for now the two sparrows will have to do.

Very lovely. I have an old industrial sewing machine that I love. It doesn't do anything but straight stitches. My sister has a very expensive machine but we both sew equally well. So there you go. I LOVE YOUR LITTLE BIRDS. Best wishes, Linda
