My First Creation with My New Sewing Machine


A Pattie's Creations, the newest challenge is Stitching - faux or real. I was thrilled as my Christmas present this year was a new sewing machine! I haven't sewed in almost 30 years so this new machine was a challenge. Part of my problem was that I attempted the fancy stiches before I tried to do a straight line - lol! My image is Dogwood Branch by Pattie and I colored it to match up with the tones of my paper using Tim Holtz ink and a sponge. I am sending this to a friend who needs a bit of cheer (send a prayer up for her if you think about it). Come join in the challenge so we can see your wonderful faux and real creations.

Hugz!

    What a lovely card that you have made here.

    I love the detail that you have used and that lovely flower bundle you have created is great.

    Thanks for the comment left on my blog as well, appreciated as always.

  2. Pretty card! I'm jealous of that stitching. My sis gave me a new sewing machine about 4 yrs. ago and I used it once. Ugh!
    Wish I could find time to master it. Guess I'm not much of a seamstress. Love your added heart and those pretty flowers.

  6. Nancy - I'd say you did a great job of stitching after 30 years of no sewing machine. I myself, gave my new machine to a neighbor, because it was just too technical for me. But, it was my very first sewing machine EVER!
    Anyway, I love the tones you have stamped and the papers you have chosen!

  7. Very pretty. You did great with the stitching. I just seem to make a mess when I sew on my cards, for the most part. Love the papers and the burlap heart.

  10. It's beautiful! I love the burlap heart and the way you stitched it on there. I can't even do straight lines on my sewing machine, so I just let it look like I meant to do that.
