Free-motion Stitched Mtn Goat on Hand Dyed Fabric
In keeping up with the Mountain Goat theme of the last several posts, here is a stitched image. This is a textile card face 4 1/2" X 6 1/2". It is difficult to see when free-motion stitching with the sewing machine on something so small but I find if I can be looking at a sketch while I am sewing my hands follow allow fairly well.
What is most important to do, is to simplify your image. Look for the least amount of lines that will convey what you want to say. I often ask myself, "Do I need this in the picture?"
