october lace atc

Well i can share my lace atc i made for pauline in the october swap on stitchin fingers as she has now received it  !   I made the lace by freemotion stitching on some water soluble stabiliser.  You really have to make sure you stitch over each shape making sure everything is connected or else when you dissolve the solvy it will also fall apart !! I wanted my lace to look like flowers and i was happy with my result. I layered the lace onto a piece of hand dyed fabric couching it in place and then embroidered in some of the centres.  I also added some stickles glitter which i just love and then just finished the edges with a satin stitch.  I am going to make some more of my own lace it was fun !!


  1. The lace is effective.good luck with the experiments. How have you been?

  2. Hi Michelle, I like your free machine embroidery, when i get settled I would like to have a go at this...

  3. Hi Michelle!!I just wanted to let you know that I have received your Postcard!!I love it!!!The angel is gorgeous too. I had one half done, but thought it didn't work out well. Now I think I'll do an Oz one or Adelaide...Will send soon. Judy XX
    Thanks for the encouraging comments.I've begun the next one- some sketches which may or may not become pages?

  4. Hi Michelle, great postcard. Love machine stitched lace. This one is really nice and I am sure you'll enjoy every minute of your next experiment with this technique.
