Jean Littlejohn and The Embellisher by Baby Lock

Whoa! Today's class with Jean Littlejohn was a mind blowing experience. I feel like I have been opened up -- something has been sparked and my mind is racing with ideas and projects! What an amazing experience. I am going to show you a sample of what we did in class, but it's not finished. I still need to do some machine sewing and beading. A lot of both, actually. But, here are photos:

This sample is made from felt, gold leafing, fibers, chiffon, and a bit of machine stitching. But, it is made on The Embellisher by Baby Lock. I think the projects on their website are fairly ugly, because this machine can do so much more! Really A-M-A-Z-I-N-G stuff! The class was described as follows:

"Students will create a patterned fabric combining bonding, layering, hand and/or machine stitching. Two new embellishing machines will be available for students' use. The enormous potential of this machine has yet to be explored."

I can't wait to do that exploring! I bought one of the embellishing machines today and eagerly await its arrival this weekend. I'll be sure to share my journey as well as the finished version of today's sample.
