Tried my hand at making an altar cloth today. Took me about 30 min just to draw out the star after using a bowl to make the circle. Found a great tutorial on youtube except I didn’t have a compass so I had to use a ruler and a few older tricks. Freehand zigzag stitching the Circle was a challenge but not too bad. and the star was simple after that. With practice I know I’ll et better esp if I can find the circle attachment for my machine. Though think next time I’ll use a hoop to stretch
the fabrich better.
What a great idea! You could make altar cloths for all types of occasions. I could think of several excuses to design an altar cloth. Thank you for sharing! My husband, randomly, but out of the goodness of his heart bought me a pair of sewing scissors for Christmas. I needed a reason to use them! You’re the best
That looks great! What a great job
If I can perfect the circle stitching I might open a store on Etsy or eBay. But Right now I’m just trying to get better then what I can do is have it so I can use contrasting fabrics.
Looks great! You did a good job!
Wonderful job, I wish that I was able to use a sewing machine that well! I’m a very basic hand sewer really. I can make small pouches!
You did a really great job, I’m sure once you find the attachment that you need it will evolve into your perfect altar cloth.
there are a number ways to do the zigzag. the hardest aspect is keeping the fabric from binding
