Using the embroidery stitches, from our sewing machine, we can "improvise" an embroidered screen, perfect to decorate our living room. We can also easily apply it in tablecloths, dresses or other household items.
For machine embroidery we can do it in two different ways. One is to use the programs of the machine itself, for which we do not need anything else. With this type of technique and the usual straight stitching we can make simple drawings or motifs.
The other technique is to prepare the sewing machine to use an embroidery frame.
To prepare the machine remove the presser foot and work with the lever down; The lever controlling the sprockets of the advance of the fabric under the needle must also be lowered. In this way the fabric will not advance mechanically, but we will be the ones who set the tone.
According to the sewing machines, the model of these varies the position of the lever. A wise decision is to consult the instructions.
The frame used in this type of craft is usually made of wood and circular, the same used to embroider by hand.
The inner earring should be lined, so the fabric will not slip. One tip is to use the smallest frame where the image fits that we like.
