New toy

This year I told my husband exactly what I wanted for my birthday, an embellisher. I chose the Baby Lock and here she is all unpacked and ready to go...



For my first project, I completed the adding of fibers to a postcard. I am trying to work out a few new flower designs...


This postcard, I added the fringe border using the embellisher.

I moved on to creating a crazy quilt postcard, using various scraps of silk and some fussy cut roses.....
Before attaching the rose.....

After running through the embellisher. As you can see the Dupioni silk really snags when punched with the needles. The plan is to add some hand stitching and practice some SRE stitches.

And here is the back of the post card.

That is fun toy. You are doing really well at it too. I just got one, but just playing, not making anything special like you did.
