Washing will preshrink the fabric, which is a necessary step. ß Begin your embroidery with a new needle and change it during the process if the point becomes dull. Skipped stitches are one indication of a dull needle. Some embroidery designs have more than 10,000 stitches. A dull needle can distort the design. ß Outfit your machine with an embroidery foot. Small Shoulder Purse with Flap by Susie Kincy (page 10): Susie used an embroidered motif from my Quilting with M’Liss collection to embellish the flap of her small shoulder purse.
I planned to use many gold buttons, then “reduced my variables” to one special button that continues the theme, shape, and colors of the purse. From the everyday ivory shirt variety to one-of-a-kind hand-painted works of art, buttons make fabulous embellishments. For added color and texture, tie them on with embroidery floss or narrow ribbon, or anchor them with beads.
