I still had some fabric scraps left over from the earlier strip patchwork bag I made, so decided to make another tote bag but this time to experiment by wadding the bag lightly & having a go with the free embroidery foot on my new Pfaff Expression 3.5. The highly recommended free embroidery capabilities of the Pfaff were the reason I chose it over the Husqvarna I was originally about to buy (that & the excellent offer at Sewing Machine World!!)
I randomly embroidered sections of the bag which I had assembled by the strip & quilt method & am pleased with the effect. If you look at the lining, you can see my attempts at free embroidery more clearly!
I know this is pretty amateurish, but the free motion on the Pfaff is amazing & I am looking forward to improving!
