Sample 1 - Zig Zag
- Dyed Satin
- Fine needlecord
- Canvas / Hessian
- T. Shirt
- Fine patterned cotton
- Small samples of patterned cotton
- Cord "type" fabric
Yes I believe this works, the zig zag stitch is much stronger than a running stitch and even where I have used white cotton it still keeps its strong pattern and texture.
Sample 2 - Zig Zag / Satin Stitch
Successful - I enjoyed sewing this sample and testing the satin stitch to the full. It sewed very well on this fabric.
Sample 3 - Zig Zag
I was able to stitch well on this canvas and the strong zig zag showed up well, unlike the running stitch sample - the organza strips were to add some colour and texture. Even without the embellishment I think this has been successful.
Sample 4 - Zig Zag
Successful - This works much better than the running stitch easier to control and with the addition of the cut and frayed ribbon which got caught up in the sewing and twisted into a cording effect is much easier to want to look into it a bit further.
