Here is a rose I embroidered on a bag I'm making for a friend. I'm learning to embroider by hand-cranking my simple sewing machine, using the free-motion foot. I do not like the computerized method, and am enjoying the creativity allowed as I create my design from a simple line drawing. I hope you like how it turned out, I do!

I think your rose is great. If you, or anyone else, wants to pursue free machine embroidery with a regular sewing machine, a couple of web sites to get you started are listed below. Try used bookstores for older books on embroidery by machine that were put out before the computerized machines came out. Keep trying. Practice is everything.

Loret asked for more websites. Google "free machine embroidery" (FME) and you will find lots of hits with designs, tips etc. You can narrow the search by adding what you most need to the initial search "FME designs", "FME patterns", projects, tips, etc. Happy hunting leads to happy stitching! Have fun.
