I started working with the March Paper Pumpkin Kit "Sew You" right after I got it. I'm not into sewing (other than fixing ripped dog toys and sewing on an occasional button) so I had a hard time with this one. But after seeing some other ideas for the kit at the Creative Connection and the Stamp Share For Leaders event, I decided it was time to work on it again! Today I'll share 4 cards I made with actual sewing on them and tomorrow I'll share the rest.
Here is my sample, following the directions:
For this one, I did the stitches going straight across the letters using retired (so it didn't matter if I goofed up!) Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine:
Here's a close up of the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker I used over a star I punched from Pear Pizzazz (a close enough match to the twine) card stock:
On this card, I did the stitches as "X's":
For this card, I sponged the bubble with Bermuda Bay Ink and used Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine
Check back tomorrow to see more of these cards!
