Drawing with a sewing machine

I found this tutorial by clutterpunk today, and may I just say, ladies and gentlemen, it is so cool. I got home at about one this morning and have been 'drawing' for about 2 hours now. It's not that hard, but it's taking me awhile to figure out. I'm also not super familiar with my (newish) sewing machine yet.

It's not that great, but it's a nice first go.

This is based off of a continuous line drawing that I did a few years ago while I was taking life drawing classes. Who knew that stuff would come in useful. The 'drawing' is made with off-white thread on chocolate brown canvas. I plan on turning it into a pillow, but I may add some more lines first. We'll see - I don't want to lose the image.


  1. Oh. My. Goodness. No, you are MY hero!! That's the type of thing I want to get doing. Sadly don't have any AWESOME continuous line drawings to, you know, just whip out and transfer onto fabric.

    I think I'll have to show this one off on my blog in a week or so, just to point out what people COULD be doing. But I won't without your permission.

  2. Came here via clutterpunk! That looks fantastic. Beautifully done!
