The temporary picture is a card I made for my mom that is still sitting on my desk....YIKES!!! Joe bought me a mini sewing machine for mother's day and we finally took it out of the box in late July and found a "home" for it. He had it all threaded and ready to go for me. So when I sat down to make this card, my intentions were to use that sewing machine and start stitching on a lot of my cards. I used the practise material and it worked like a charm. Then I sewed up one side of paper and halfway down the other and it knotted up. So very carefully I pulled slowly, cut the knot, rethreaded the machine and it refused to work from that point on. It was like it knew I was inexperienced and just refused to go on. lol.
Luckily I have some "stitching image" stamps and was able to use those. lol. I found this card on splitcoaststampers here. I changed things up a little, but just loved this idea.
stamps: Unity Stuck on You, Hemlines by Paper Salon
designer paper: October Afternoon, PTI poppy, SU kraft
I used brads, buttons, and twine.
This was a lot of fun, even though the machine broke. A friend of mine suggested I buy a used machine from a local guy who does sewing machine repairs. I called him and told him what happened and he laughed, he said his refurbished are guarenteed for 3 years. So when we get ready to go down and get one, that's where we plan to buy one. lol.
