I'm A Dirty Rotten Cheater

When I was de-pitting my workroom over the weekend, I re-discovered the
user-guide for my sewing machine.
.
I had a quick flip through it last night.
.
Now I've always thought those decorative stitches on sewing machines were for people who did "real" sewing ... you know, people who can do smocking, blind hems and can follow dress patterns ... so I've never really taken much notice of them, until this caught my eye.
.

.
Hang on, does that mean my machine can make me look like I can do proper hand-sewing?
.
.
Then I got excited.
.
You see, I've always wanted the JB*JB applique flower bag to look more rustic and hand-sewn.
.

.
Ta-da!
.

.
Told you I was a dirty rotten cheater!

No way, you are not cheating! Just working your machine to its full advantages!!! :) The flower looks awesome- I wish my machien did that, but Im pretty sure it has one regular stick and maybe a "zig-zag" and thats about it haha!!

Now I know my machine won't do that! I think it can do just about everything else but that is the one thing I wish it could do! Just out of interest, what machine do you use?
