I dragged out my sewing machine, set it up on the kitchen table plugged it it and decided to take a test run, hmmm it wasn’t working, the thread was getting caught and my stitch wasn’t right so…………..I tried to pull the thread from the bobbin case and took one ring off, the other followed so decided to scrap machine sewing and will be taking the machine in to have it checked over. That left me with two options, faux stitching (I suck at that) or hand stitching.
The sponsor for the challenge is Stamp Art by Katheryne and the image I chose was Alannah & Snowball. I’m trying to do at least one Christmas card a month so when November/December arrives I’m ahead of the game. I coloured the image with my spectrum noir markers, the patterned paper is a couple of years old and I stuck it to the pink cardstock then punched holes in it every 1/4 inch and hand stitched with green thread. The ribbon I used was already sewn.
