Simulating the look of hand embroidered crazy quilting is fast and easy with an embroidery machine! All the blocks in this set are stitched similar to paper piecing in the hoop using a stitch and flip method.
Last July, I digitized a set of continuous line baby animals and then used the same artwork to recreate the animals in appliqué and now I’ve finally finished stitching those appliqué versions!
Sometimes you just need a tote bag with a little more pizzaz than you can get by embellishing a premade one. Fortunately tote bags are easy to make with only basic sewing skillis and relatively fast with the added benefit that a flat piece of fabric is way easier to embroider than a tubular, ready made bag, especially when stitching on a domestic, flat bed machine.
