Yesterday, I practiced free motion scribble stitching around some scrappy fused flower patches. Stitching with black thread was scary, but now after stitching a dozen flowers, I think I'm getting the hang of it. I was prepared to do my practice stitching and throw away my samples, but I really like them. So next week, I'll make them up into little zippered pencil cases. Stay tuned. Want to try it yourself? Here's a link with some tips.
