I’ve been experimenting with my new-to-me embroidery machine. Mostly thanks to @PrincessP, who created an awesome digital file for a Lettuce Craft patch. I started out with the tutorial from Urban Threads, and one of their designs for Crafty Merit Badges, specifically their Runs With Scissors patch. I used tear away stabilizer under the felt, then finished them on water soluble stabilizer, so they are completely freestanding.
After a little practice, I even managed to give them backing layers of felt, so you don’t see the embroidery.
Once I had a feel for patch making, I felt confident enough to try the LC patch. Since I only had dark felt when I started, I tried a few of what I’m calling my “Dark Mode” patches.
After I was able to pick up some more light felt, I did a few in white, as she designed them.
Then finally I tried out the world’s most adorable patch pattern, for a potion bottle. It might be the cutest thing I’ve made so far on my embroidery machine.
After finishing making some more patches yesterday, I tried my hand at coasters. This blue moon coaster is for my bedside table, to compliment the moon & constellation artwork in there.
