Following on from Crafts of Texture: Machine Embellishing – How to use your Embellisher, I would like to show you another way to use your embellisher...
Project 2: Decorating Denim
Cut a small square of denim and several differing size organza circles (these don't need to be exact, or even ironed... unless you are wanting a crisp finish).
Place one of the organza circles onto the denim and place under the needles of your embellisher ready to start work.
Slowly punch the organza circle into the denim base. You will notice that it shrinks the organza into a 3-D form, with a textured center... this is your flower head.
Once finished remove from the machine and decorate by hand. Here I have used simple embroidery stitches and seed beads.
And there you go... all finished!
Why not turn this into a panel for a pocket on a bag? Or fancy decoration to the hem of your jeans?
I hope this gives you some ideas...
