New Day New Technique

Image Bottom: The Frame and Stitching
Image Top: The Result - the work cut from the frame

I thought I would have a go at weaving and free machine embroidery with beading. As I didn't have a suitable frame I decided to improvise. It is amazing what you can do with a PG Tips box! No point in being a creative if you can't do Playschool!
So I made a frame, I did some yarn wrapping, I did a little free machine embroidery and hey, presto! Watch point: I didn't use any stabiliser on this so I had to take care not to catch the embroidery foot in the cross threads. This is the result1 Although I quite like the outcome it has limited possibilities; Maybe a greetings card.


  1. ive been wanting to play with weaving for a while too - just to find the time!

  2. Hi Abigail, thanks for your comment. It really doesn't take long, even when you have to make the frame. If you need any tips, just send me a msg on Hand Embroidery Network.
