First UFO Finished
I love tea towels be them plain, patterned, terry or a souvenir variety. These 2 were given to me by a lovely lady who never finished them herself and she knows I love chooks. They had been sitting in a Hettie's Patch bag on the cupboard waiting for me to finish them off. What a great idea it was to join the UFO Challenge.
So this evening I sat and practiced my satin stitch with my machine. Only part of the applique that I didn't need to do was the chicken.
You can see as I went along, I became more steady and tidier with the satin stitch. Doing the applique with the machine is quicker and as I tend to treat these sort of towels, as hand towels and good for cleaning up a spillage..... the machine applique will last longer.
Well that is one UFO out the way..... wonder what will come next????
You're only limited by your imagination.
