The patterns are all stitched out, trimmed and joined into back to back pairs with edge stitching.
I seem to have a few of these type of patterns so I stitched them out in close proximity so I could compare them.
A few favorites!
These are delightful cross stitch patterns in the lovely gold colour. I don't cross stitch but I might.
Embroideries in the duller colour.
The alphabets and numbers could be used as they are or I imagine the length and width dials could be adjusted to alter their appearance.
There are many variations. The thinness or thickness of the threads would change the stitches. I haven't experimented with that but I will. I did some experimenting with changing the stitch length and then trying the length. The balance function will also distort the pattern. Stitches can be placed close to each other, on top of one another or even crossing over one another.
The possibilities are quite limitless.
This example uses a basic honeycomb stitch, #8 in my basic utility section of stitches. I can also swing the fabric as the pattern is stitching out and this makes very exciting options as the rhythm of the swing could be fast, slow or a herky jerky!. Some patterns open up and look pretty better than others. Again, lots of options.
For those who sigh for lack of patterns on their basic sewing machine, there is always the good old zig zag stitch. And then there are the various kinds of fabric that get in the stitches, causing them to be filled with threads or nap . Gauzes and velvets are just two that are very exciting to this chick.
Sew... what if a spring chick took her machine out on the dance floor and after a slow dance to warm up, threw off those heavy confining winter covers and salsa'd!!!
Happy stitching. Perhaps you'd like to go see what others have on their worktable this Wednesday. TNTN
