Project 2 took me right out of my comfort zone as I had to learn (or relearn) all the stitches and so this part of the course took me a long time. I did, however, enjoy all the exercises immensely and felt I was able to be creative in exploring ‘drawing with stitch’. I did find some of the instructions confusing as it was not always clear what was asked for so in the end I just tried to do ‘a bit of everything’ without worrying too much!
I particularly enjoyed working on the two samples, using my photos/drawings as a starting point. I very much look forward to trying out some techniques with a sewing machine as I only used hand-stitching for this project. I need to work out how I can use my machine without lowering the feed dogs – as I don’t think I can with my machine! I feel very inspired to go on to the next part of the course and look forward to further experimenting with stitch.
