I have been thinking about creating a stitched floral garden for a long time.It has taken me a while because I did not want to create with any glues or any special materials. Neither did I want to use a zigzag stitch or a quilting foot. Not everybody has those options. So I have been experimenting for a while with creating a layered, collaged fabric garden using only straight machine stitching.As my usual, I have used fabric scraps and remnants to create a fantasy fabric garden.The technique has to be possible with only a sewing machine, a domestic with a straight stitch, fabric scraps and thread. This time you can use stretch as well as woven fabrics.There are pattern pieces at the end of the tutorial but you could also create free hand shapes and use those.Once you try this technique I think that you will want to do it again and again. It comes together pretty quickly and can be used for a number of applications. As an art piece as is, to embellish a pillow or a vest or a jacket or a bag. A small floral garden can also be used as a bracelet.You can create in whatever size you like, though for the tutorial piece I suggest a specific size to become acquainted with the technique. Once you have mastered it, the sky is the limit.You don't need to buy any special tools for this, a regular domestic sewing machine will do the job. When I teach I don't know what machines or tools people will have and I want everyone to be able to use my techniques without having to spend any money to buy new machines or expensive tools. My tutorials are designed to be used with a standard domestic straight stitch machine. You can also reuse fabrics you have at home to recreate them into a beautiful piece of fabric.
