My birthday was Christmas Eve and I got the Baby Lock Evolve Serger and the Baby Lock Embellisher. The sewing machine store made DH an offer he couldn’t refuse! Woohoo! I sort of suspected I was getting a serger when I "accidentally" discovered the big bag of Maxi-Lock thread. But the embellisher was a complete surprise. I wanted one – even casually mentioned it a few times but didn’t think he was paying attention. This was one of my best birthdays ever!
Here is my first attempt at playing around with the embellisher. I felted some fusible fibers, feathers and a couple little scraps of painted cheesecloth on to some painted lutradur. I tore that (by mistake) and felted the torn pieces onto a piece of Kunin felt. I never had so much fun not knowing what in the world I was doing! The photo doesn't show how sparkly it is.
