Instead of using pen and paper, use your sewing machine and colorful thread as your tools for doodling. There’s no right or wrong way to Doodle Stitch. Rather, let the creative process be your guide. Nancy will show you how to create small, artistic projects without a rulebook.
►►► Key Points in this VIDEO Tutorial (Doodle Stitching Part 3 of 3) ◄◄◄
① Clip 'n Stitch Doodling: Small snippets of fabric fused to a background are the doodling tools used to create an artistic tree limb and bird nest.
② Popsicle Garden: Learn the tricks of the trade while stitching a whimsical work of art; circles and rectangular shapes are all that's needed, along with a little stitching time.
③ Doodle Outside the Lines: Much like coloring in a book, roughly stitch sketchy stitches on doubled sheer printed fabric to create subtle shades of color.
④ Nancy's Corner Segment 3 features Margaret Jankowski of The Sewing Machine Project.
→ Margaret shares how a mending program helps people maintain their clothing and their dignity when volunteers offer simple clothing and textile repair, teach some basic mending skills, and perhaps-most importantly-listen.
Public television's longest-running sewing and quilting program has been the source for innovative sewing, quilting and embroidery techniques and has inspired hobbyists nationwide since host Nancy Zieman transformed the television studio into her classroom in 1982.
The first Sewing With Nancy program aired on cable TV in 1982. Initially, the programs were videotaped in Nancy’s living room with a camera crew of one person and 13-hour taping days! In the early years, Nancy Zieman ran a one-woman show, developing the scripts, making the samples, and taping the programs.
Today, Nancy still writes the scripts, yet it’s a team effort to plan the programming, develop the samples, and write and illustrate the books.
