How to draw with your sewing machine - lesson 1
Updated: Apr 29, 2018
Learn the basics of free motion machine embroidery so that you can draw with your sewing machine.
As mentioned in the last post you don't have to be fantastic at drawing to use the sewing machine as a drawing tool. In this tutorial you learn how to draw straight lines, curved lines and lettering as demonstrated by the daisyknots above. You will see that "daisy" has one line of sewing and"knots" has two lines of sewing. There is no right or wrong, it depends on whatever look you are going for. I tend to favour black sewing thread when drawing but again it is your preference. Check the post on how to setup your sewing machine for free motion embroidery before you start. Grab yourself a cup of tea as the video is 12 mins long.
