When I first bought my new sewing machine the woman who sold it to me told me about an invisible pen (aka mark-be-gone.) You draw on fabric with it then stitch over the lines and the ink disappears about 20 hours later. Out loud I said, “Oh that’s interesting” inside I was saying “There’s no way I’ll ever use one of those, I just want to stitch free hand”.
Then came Rita.
Yesterday I went back to the store and bought 3 mark-be-gones. Above is my first attempt at drawing Silent Rita using the invisible pen and free motion stitching.
I think this is going to work.
