I have done several projects before where I used my youngest son's face for the design.
This time it was the turn of my eldest son to lend his picture to a project.
I've always wanted to try freehand machine embroidery but always put it off because I thought I didn't have the right machine for it.
Today I just gave it a go. This is the result.
I used a variegated thread on a fine polka dot fabric.
It is not perfect but it is a start....
