The other day I was cutting off my husband's jeans and turning them into shorts. When I was done, I looked at my machine and thought "hmmm, this may be the time to try sewing on a card." I had never done it before but had seen some cards with stitching on them and thought it was I should try. I must say I find it easier to sew on fabric than paper. I probably should have adjusted the tension and maybe used a different needle but it didn't come out too badly. I'll have to practice.
I followed the Freshly Made sketch.
The paper is from a Crate Paper stack that I sewed to kraft cardstock with black thread. One of the hardest things for me is tying my card design to a sentiment. What was I going to do with this? I decided on "What's the Word?" and printed it on my computer using a font similar to the letters for the "word". It's cut with a PTI word frame and then inked to give it a color more like the print paper.
I'm glad you stopped by for a visit. Have a great day and please come back again.
