The SBS 24 challenge this week was to do sewing on a card. Let's give a little background on my experience with sewing. My mom was a fabulous seamstress, she made our clothes, clothes for my dolls, did slip covers, etc... My two older sisters are pretty adept at sewing too! I can thread the bobbin and do a straight stitch. I did do some curtains from remnants when we first moved into our house.
Anyways, to my reason why I have an aversion to sewing. When my son was 2 (about 9 years ago), I tried to make him a telly tubby costume for Halloween. That fleece put me over the edge and the machine has been in the closet since then.
So, fast forward to today- I used faux stitching by paper piercing around the squares and then using a white gel pen. The stamps are from the new Stampin Up Spring and Summer catalog. Which goes live today- check my website later today to view catalog on line.
