One of my favourite craft bloggers, Jennie of A Little Vintage, makes classy plush dolls with a combination of mediums - sewing and painting. She inspired me with a tutorial on a freehand drawing/embroidery stitch while using a normal sewing machine.
So that was what I was practicing last night. The stitches are crazy and all over the place but I love it for that. It has an organic feel to it [not too perfect]. It even reminds me of the writing style of the Gumnut Babies [anyone remember May Gibbs and her Australian creations?].
Follow this link to see Jennie's [above mentioned] tutorial...
