This is my first piece of free motion sewing...I used a lot of zig zag!! Henrietta puckered terrbly due to the thousands of stitches, but it worked out well, because I padded her to hid the puckering...and she looks all th better for it i think!!
I LOVE chickens, have collections of many!! First time free motion sewing??? WOW!!!
I meant to ask... Is it all thread?.. or does it have some fabric in it?.. and did you draw it first on the fabric background? You did a wonderful job!!
She is entirely made up of stitch, both zig zag and straight. It was a great way to experiement with direction and control....The emphasis was on her, the background was just a quick after thought, as it shows! But this was never ment to be a piece of art!! The photo doesnt really do her justice as you can not really see her 3 d effect!
You are very good at machine drawing!
Henrietta is gorgeous. I love chickens, alot of people do. If this is your first attempt, wow. I have never tried...yet.
I love Henrietta. Your free motion work is terrific.
A super first piece! I love the subject of chickens, and especially like the almost triangular shape of Henrietta.
