Last night I was doodling on my tablet thingy and a thought came to mind. Now, if you've been reading my blog long enough, you'll know I'm a fan of The Far Side and the one panel comic strip. I decided to turn my doodle into a one panel comic strip except to make it even more challenging, I decided to stitch the doodles - with my sewing machine!
It was already 11pm when the "brilliant idea" came and by the time I was done sewing the hens, it was midnight. I am not so good at free motion sewing that I was able to do it without any guidelines. I transferred the doodles to the fabric first.
Hubs and my girl said they couldn't tell that I had sewn the stitches. Why did I choose to use free motion? To give it a child-like look. The words were too small and I decided to hand stitch them. That took another half an hour. If you don't get the humour, it's alright. I do have an odd sense of humour. I guess this is another piece of art for my wall.
p.s. has anyone done free motion doodling? are you stitches nice and regular or not at all like mine?
