I had to use 3 pieces of heavy stabilizer in the front, back and top for this one. Because the top of the machine is shorter than the bottom, the material needed something extra to stay square.
|Another embroidery design from the Embroidery Library. I do love their designs. Don't blame them for the color choices here. I was just picking and choosing anything I liked.|
I serged two pieces of organza together and used binding to cover the edge. Only mistake was using Dritz binding. As it turns out, the inside of the Dritz binding is not uniform like the outside. I wanted to put the binding on by sewing a hidden stitch on the back edge by machine and turning it to the front to hand-sew that side. The inside raw edges of the Dritz were wildly off. There was no way to lay the binding on evenly without a straight edge. I ended up just folding and sewing which never turns out well for me. Now I remember why I make my own binding.
|Yet another design from Embroidery Library. One of the bird designs would have been too heavy in stitches for this fabric.|
