Sewing on Paper

Hello! I “sew” enjoy going through your entries for the latest challenge, “In Stitches”, as they pop into my inbox. Your takes on sewing on a layout are fabulous! I thought I would stop by today with links to a couple of sewing on paper tutorials to inspire those of you who haven’t played along yet.

I found both of these tutorials via Pinterest and have added them to the Scrapbook Circle board Crafty Tips, Tricks and Tutorials. First up, a tutorial for using your handwriting as a template for embroidery (like I did in my sample layout last week):

The tips that Leigh-Ann from the Freckled Nest offers are really great. You’ll have the confidence to sew your next title once you’ve perused her lovely photos and easy-to-follow how-to.  Next up, how to get even, professional looking stitches:

I won’t give it away, but this idea from New House Project is so simple, it just kills me that I didn’t think of it first.

I hope you’re inspired to give sewing on your next layout a go! Don’t forget to link up your layout to the challenge post by Wednesday, November 2nd for a chance to win the Hallow’s Eve kit.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stitching!
