I tried out two new techniques on this week's 1 of 1, both of which put my sewing machines to work 😤
The first technique is called "applique" which I tried on the front of the shirt. This is most commonly used while quilting, to get one pattern of fabric on top of another. I used my embroidery machine to stitch down a patterned fabric, paused the machine, cut away all the excess fabric, then resumed the machine which stitched over the cut edges.
The second technique is a little more straightforward, its what I did on the back, where instead of screenprinting on the shirt, I screen printed on a piece of fabric, then sewed that fabric onto the shirt. It honestly just never really crossed my mind to do this, but it certainly opens up many new creative routes when it comes to clothing design
