Puntadas y trucos
Recently I've done a little free motion machine embroidery, or thread sketching. From some of the comments I received it's clear that this seems all a bit fancy, mysterious and only for extreme sewists . It's not. So I've written this post to demystify the process of 'thread sketching', and hopefully some of you will be encouraged to give it a go.
