Big Bernie and some stitches


I made these while up in Greenville while my daughter was bathing, feeding and putting the baby down. I had nothing but a few scraps and her Big Bernie--hers is great but I love my  little Bernie. She does just fine---except she doesn't have that great foot that sews on buttons. Oh well--can't have everything. Or maybe I can---maybe I just don't have that foot---hummmmm...how many feet do we need???!! I found out that what I really need is a walking foot. Ok--that's the next purchase. I also went back and embellished with a black Pitt pen--which may or may not have been a good thing. It was pretty cute without the black too. 
It was a fun quick project-about 20-30 minutes each. Macaulay had to sew on the button for me---with that great button foot thingy.

CUTE! I like the way the black writing adds to the design.

Covering a button with masking tape to secure it would work well while sewing it down with a walking foot and the feed dogs down.

Great job Martha. You are getting better at that free motion with each project you create. I believe that sew on button foot is #18 and it is available for your Bernie. I have one for my Nina. Want one? I can send you one. You're on your own with the walking foot. That monster has a big price tag on it.
