❤️ Day 10: Painting With Bobbin Thread!

Have you tried super-heavyweight thread in your bobbin to create cool designs? It is great fun…I do recommend keeping a second bobbin case, permanently set a bit looser, for these projects. Hand-wind the thread … in this project, white Razzle Dazzle from Superior Threads … thread your needle with monofilament … and mark your design on the REVERSE side. You’ll basically be working upside down ;).

For this valentine, I sketched a tribute to our beloved motorcycle on the reverse side of the postcard, inserting hearts for wheels ;), then fused a piece of red fabric to the front (which had enough surface interest but not TOO much.) By following my sketch with the needle, the bobbin thread created a dramatic image 😁. Vrooooooom 💕!
