Get that Sewing Machine Out!

Oh my goodness, how I love to sew. I have sewn for about 30 years. Now I don't have time to do much of anything anymore but I have always loved the look of sewing on layouts, cards, and tags. Well, my wonderful machine is in my beautiful sewing cabinet that my mother gave me but I never get it out to use it: until this week! Now I am totally addicted. I had so much fun making these three cards and sewing on them. The first card I did for design team work for both Triple the Sketch and Inspire Me Card Kits. The second card was also for Inspire Me Card Kits, and the last one I made just for fun using some new papers I got from Create My Keepsake. I mostly used machine sewing; however, on the second card, I did do some hand sewing on the butterfly. So fun! So, if you haven't gotten your sewing machine out lately, I highly recommend it! Have fun, and thanks for looking!

You have inspired me to get my machine out and dust it off! (so long as it is for cardmaking and not curtains or some such boring thing.)

Oh, I was going to add... I actually got my first sewing machine last August as a birthday present because I wanted to sew on my layouts and cards! :) haha.... I have NEVER used it for anything else. Kind of funny I don't use it to make anything out of fabric and stuff.... would have NO idea where to start :) lol

I love how you went from the straight stitch to the zig zag and back to the straight. Looks awesome.

All your cards look cute! But I just finished up a sewing project so I could put my sewing machine away. It's gonna be a couple of weeks for me before I pull it back out. :)

I would sew on my layouts more but I can't figure out how to change the bobbin (it has red thread in it! LOL!) and I can't locate my owner's manual! Sad huh? :)
