Now anyone who knows me knows that I am not at all talented in anything sewing related. My husband is in charge of sewing buttons back on and anything more challenging than that goes straight to a dress-maker for repairs. I will not buy pants if the hems are too long and the idea of having to use a sewing machine is enough to make me break out in a rash.
I thought of doing faux stitches like I have done on a previous card, but the idea of actual stitching really appealed to me. So you can imagine how excited I was to discover a neat little stitching tool called the We R Memory Keepers - Sew Easy Stitch Piercer that you just run across your cardboard and it makes perfectly spaced little holes you can then just run your needle and thread through. You can buy different heads for different stitches, but I thought I would try the easiest one first. I am so happy with how it turned out - such a nice embellishment for a male card.
Now the rest of the DT team did a far more professional job of stitching than I did - so to see how they do it, and to add your own entry - visit us at Ruby's Rainbow - Stitching Challenge.
