Embroidery Cake

Good morning

Here's another card that we made at the Cards and Sewing workshop on Monday. This one included showing the ladies the different technique of doing one round of stitching and then doing another round over the same stitches. I love this technique as the messier the better in my opinion!

The fabric is from a retired collection from Stampin' Up!, and the sentiment is from Lift Me Up.

Machine Embroidery - Bird Card

Good morning,

I've been having a play recently combining my two passions for card making and sewing. I was approached by a fellow local crafter Emma Jennings, who runs Material Girl Horbury (website) at the possibilities of running a joint class. I jumped at the opportunity and started to think that simple projects we could do. 

This card is quite a leap for me. I like to copy, CASE (copy and share everything!) and use templates. I'm get stuck when I have to come up with my own designs and I use Pinterest ALL the time! I don't have the time or energy to play around with my stamps, I just want to create cute projects that someone else has had the creativity to produce.   This card was made with scissors, no template and I just went freestyle and cut out something that vaguely looked like a bird. The fabric is a retired fabric from Stampin' Up! from a few years ago that I still had in my stash. I double stitched around the bird twice, using my fabulous Janome TXL607.  I like the effect it gives and it doesn't have to look too perfect.
