LACE Handkerchief

Just like the free motion flowers I did on a previous blog post earlier... you can make a simple handkerchief, or a mini-table topper with this technique.  For all the details, see my earlier post on lace flowers here.  I made this little handkerchief item to wear in a denim jacket pocket, and I still like wearing it today! It's a great technique/project to get familiar with stabilizers, and  a fun way to get comfortable with free motion if you're just starting (or even if you're not!).  I usually have it in my teaching notebook, so if you think of it, ask me to show it to you if you are in one of my free motion classes!

All it takes is tulle, sticky back stabilizer, and a top layer of aqua film.... one spool of a pretty variegated thread... one spool of white, and brown for the contrast edging.  
Be sure to wind a bobbin with the same thread as the top... 
add your favorite free motion foot, and a wooden embroidery hoop! 
Again, see the VIP details here just in case you missed that one!

...and because I like pretty pictures, I staged this shot in my dining room, because the northern light coming through it is so cool.  The cross was a Christmas gift I received from my most beautiful daughter-in-law, Monica. 

Happy Sunday! 
Soli deo Gloria!
