In my last post I mentioned the berries were made by couching over in yarn. This couching method is achieved by free-motion machine work, as simple as dropping the feed-teeth, using a free-motion or darning foot and sewing over a length of yarn.
I even took the foot off the machine trying to get a clear photo, but these were the best…sorry they are blurry, but you can get the idea. Threading a yarn through an opening or hole in a freemotion foot so that the needle will pierce the yarn and sew it to the face of the fabric.
Machine companies have come out with a new marketing package for these feet. Here is Vikings at a heafty price tag of $55.00. I saw the Bernina foot and they are always more expensive, but just know that there are alternative feet without the cost.
This is fast and really cool… give it a try.
