:: Freehand Machine Embroidery Styles ::

These designs are done with my regular sewing machine, the same one I use and the same way I use it as for the sewing of the seams and hems of the garments. These patterns are not drawn on the pieces first, but rather are completely free-hand. Any of these styles can be done on any garment. The quilted jackets showcase these patterns, and were the first items to do so.

There are several design families and any pattern may be done in any color thread. Styles can also be combined. Please see the photo examples and select the style you would like. Call or email me (see contact page) to discuss combinations and options.
