I’m always looking for more ways to use the decorative stitches on my sewing machine. I sew on a BERNINA B 790 PLUS and it has over 1300 stitches! And most of them are so pretty! There’s always a few that are not as nice as the rest but most of them are just beautiful. I created this little work of art using some of the stitches that look like leaves, vines, and petals to grow my own stitch garden. After stitching the stems, I added decorative papers to make the ground and scattered a few buttons over the stem for flowers. I finished it by trimming it and placing it in a 5″ x 7″ wooden frame.

I used scraps from both my fabric and decorative paper stashes, a few random buttons from my button jar, and an unused frame I had laying around.  I hope this inspires you to use your decorative stitches more!

This is one my latest videos on my YouTube channel. I recently posted several new ones and more to come. If you have not done so, please subscribe so you’ll know when I post new ones!
