A really fun textile technique for creating your own embroidery Art. I've used this process to make my own lace. FUN!
I used a freehand machine embroidery foot on the sewing machine, which just allows your draw patterns with your sewing machine, making your designs original and unique.
This was a quick experimental sample. I wanted to experiment with different machine stitches and how I could use them to create shapes and patterns. I found the straight stitch the most effective stitch because it was easier to navigate over the aqua-film.
One thing to remember when using this technique is to make sure you build up a base of stitches on the aqua-film so when the aqua-film dissolves in water, your stitches are strong and the pattern you created are still intact.
I like this first sample and I visualise it being used as fabric for the neckline of a dress.
So I'll continue with this technique and see what other patterns I can create.
