I'm Sewing! I'm Sewing!!!



So my Mom and Dad were here on Sunday afternoon for a little visit and to pick Emileigh up and take her home with them for a few days. And while she was here, my Momma gave me a little tutorial on how to use her old sewing machine. It's the heaviest darn thing and I believe it's at least 30 years old....correct me if I'm wrong, Mom. I knew how to sew on it, but not how to make a bobbin, so....no bobbin, no sewing. And I've been DYING to sew on my cards!!

Well, after I had my tutorial from the 'Sewing Master', I went right to work and made this card with the new Edwin!! I used Red Riding Hood and Kiwi Kiss from the new SU In Colour line and accented with Not Quite Navy. The patterned papers I used are from the My Mind's Eye line called Star Bright....very appropriate! I sewed a zigzag stitch around the two main layers, added a diecut star, a punched glitter star, some buttons and the Verve Visual sentiment and pop dotted good ol' Eddie!! You like???



THANKS Mom, for the sewing session!! I'll be sewing a lot more now....on CARDS....not clothes, silly!!!
