It’s APRIL! Yay! I’m starting off circle month with some circle tools that I use and love.
First up is the circle embroidery attachment that I just got for my sewing machine. It’s genius, really. Like why-didn’t-I-invent-it-myself? genius. It screws into my machine and sews circles. Cool, huh? This is what it looks like on the machine. There’s a little pin that holds the center of the fabric in place. The fabric spins around the pin as it feed through the machine.
And here it is in action.
Are you as amazed as I am? This was the first time I’d played with it, and yes, I should have had some interfacing or stabilizer on the back. I straight stitched, added some decorative stitches, then with a little bit ‘o fusible webbing, added the brown linen. Well, how about if we add some blanket stitches around that baby?
Let me just say that my machine is not an embroidery machine. Even a regular machine can do this, as long as you have a similar attachment that fits your machine.
Ahhh – so much fun and so much success on my first try! I’m happy.
Feel free to sew along! Info on the button and flickr group are here.
