No sewing machines were harmed in the making of this journal. In my continuing effort to break a needle my machine remains unfazed. Since this machine can embroider canvas and other thick fabrics, I thought I’d give it a go. Other than a few tension problems, it worked out pretty well. And I really like the textural quality of the embroidery. I was inspired by all of the great moleskine journals on Etsy and this needlepoint sketchbook kit, available at purl.
I may try some appliqué next. I think these journals embroidered with little animals would make nice gifts for new mothers. It’s nice to have a place to write down all of the precious things your baby does.
