This morning I wanted to try some different ways of sewing illustration, commonly called “free hand motion embroidery”.

I was surfing the web and found out that  many amazing ladies(mostly in the U.K.) uses “darning foot” on their wonderful machine drawings.

This picture is the result of all my effort after hours and hours of practices in my P.J.

You would be surprised how terrible I was at first but practice makes everything perfect! after several attempts I improved in such a short amount of time. (All happened for about  3 hours!)


When my 10 years old eldest daughter, Caylin saw my drawing, her comment was

“It’s messy. Did you do it on purpose?”

Is she cruel or optimistic?


As I sensed  I need more practice, I grabbed the fabrics that I really did not  care if it goes to trash. You don’t want to waist your linen on “messy doodling”.


Do you see it’s getting better? I believed so. 🙂


Then I tried to attach other scraps to add color. Without noticing, I was already enjoying this new darning foot thingy. haha


This is a darning foot that comes with sewing machine accessory when I purchased less than a year ago. F.Y.I. my sewing machine is Brother XR1355, my hubby got me at Costco.

I am not sure if I can draw a tiny scissor or bicycle with this new way-using a darning foot instead of using regular foot.

Either way, I am busy playing with my sewing machine all day.

Thank you for visiting me.


You can see more works on my Korean blog:
