Trapunto

Since DH is away for a week I got the time to sit and work on my Trapunto class which I am taking on Dollstreet with Sherry Goshan. I found it quite fiddly but got it done. I realised one needs to have a lot of control over the machine stitching. It has puckered a bit so I have got a frowning face LOL! I will try and do one with hand stitching and use a frame next time. I am sure stitching those tiny areas will be easier with hand and I will have more control over it to get a good shape.

  1. I think you did a great job! Was this done free-hand - I mean, without sketching on the design first? It's awesome!

  2. I can never get that much control out of my machine! Shashi did we meet at a doll club in London a couple of years ago? I make cloth dolls and I came about twice.

  3. Looks great to me, Shashi! I could never sew something like that with my machine.

  4. Hi Ana,
    We possibly might have met if you had come to the doll club. Why don't you come again. There is plenty going on now. Every meeting we are doing something different and learning too.

  8. Shashi, don't you think the puckers will go away when you finish the head and stuff it? Mine is puckered too, and I'm hoping the stuffing will stretch it enough to smooth it out.
