Free Hand Machine Embroidery Treat Box

Buddly Crafts Design Team Makes

Over at the Buddly Crafts Blog the theme this month is 'Handmade Sweet Packaging' and, as the sewing and felting contributor, I whipped up this little free motion embroidered treat box;

It's a perfect project for beginners as it's such a small scale design and if the first one goes wrong you can discard it without too much waste - However, don't forget that a few wobbles are all part of the appeal of raw edge appliqué and free motion embroidery!

The full tutorial can be found here and the wooden display top box is available for purchase in the Buddly Crafts shop.   

A visit to the Buddly Blog, will also reveal these lovely makes by my fellow DT members;
