Groovy! Love this tutorial, thank you... I've always cut my small shapes out first, then free-motion stitched them, which can be difficult because the small pieces tend to shift and wrinkle in the process. I'll have to try it your way. Hope you're enjoying the springtime, & contemplating sharing your almond cookie recipe from the last post :) Hugs, rachel

Simple. Sweet. Charming!


Free-motion stitching doesn't look so intimidating when you break it down like that. Thanks!

Thank you for this tutorial. I've been wanting to try this and didn't know how. I didn't really search either, but here you go! Perfect. Now I need to find the presser foot. I love your art!

You have always stood out as a generous artist Rebecca; just one more reason to love the art, and the artist! Your Mama raised you right!

Wow: All these years I've cut the shape first. This is so much more inviting. I'm going straight upstairs to try. Thanks!

Rebecca, you always have the coolest stuff here! Thanks for sharing this. I really need to practice my free-motion stitching, so this will be a great project to try!


It would never have occurred to me to do it this way. I'm looking forward to trying it.
