Sewing with Nancy: Doodle Stitching
Join host Nancy Zieman as she teaches you to translate your pen and paper doodles onto fabric with your sewing machine to create small works of fiber art. The sewing is fast, and the end result - satisfying.
Lesson 1: Explore the sewing machine’s decorative stitches.
Nancy demonstrates three projects that feature artistic stitches. In Zigzag Doodles see how a bartack becomes an artistic design.
Lesson 2: Learn techniques to create collages and build confidence using free-motion stitching.
Nancy artfully assembles buttons, ribbons, and fabric to create two very different styles of collage. Begin experimenting with basic free-motion stitching techniques with the Daydream Stitching project and the Squiggle Monograms.
Lesson 3: Expand free-motion stitching skills, while exploring new artistic options.
See how Nancy translates a pen and paper doodle to fabric and thread with the Clip ‘n Stitch Doodle. Learn the tricks of the free-motion stitching while making the Popsicle Garden, a whimsical work of art.
