Practise Time.....

for Free Motion Machinery.  For those of you who know, Mum still in hospital.  So yesterday managed to grab a couple of hours to practise my free motion machinery, I decided to make a couple of covers for my Pinking shears( they cut little zig zags to stop material fraying) and my ordinary material scirrors.

I used 2 cotton napkins for the back, thick iron on vilene for the centre and the top pieces are curtain remnants, plus my machinery.  Wishing everyone a lovely Saturday before the storms hit us.


  1. Lovely results, Francesca!

    All the best for your mom!

  2. I love all the patterns you created with your sewing machine stitches. I'm sure it was a good way to release stress about having your mother in the hospital. I pray that she'll be better soon.

  3. I always hated practicing free motion and then not having anything useful to show for it. Good idea to make a scissors case.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  4. Sorry to hear mum is still in hospital. Hope things do not get you down too much. Keep your chin up.
    On a brighter note, love your sewing. I made covers for scissors last year but I think we just stuck them down. Don't remember any sewing.
    Take care - thinking of you both
