So, I am not a blogger that will be only showing things that will turn out. My crafting life is full of disasters...most of the time I learn from them. Some disasters have made me realize that some crafts just aren't for me (cross-stitching and knitting!) and have led me to look for other avenues for my creativity.
As you saw for my first blog I started sewing in paper, and surprise the straight stitch turned out awesome!!! I really want to be able to zig zag on paper too. So I got my sewing machine out again, and tried it in my test paper. Well I don't know what I am doing wrong (and still apparently am) but my zig zag stitches were coming up upside down. Still haven't figured that out....so I just figured I would just sew on the wrong side and that worked fine. First time through was going great....and then my bobbin ran out of thread! So I had all these giant holes. Oh well. Picked them out and figured I would still push forward.
Got all the way around the card, and right on the most viewable corner ended up with a birds nest! Gahhhhh!!! So I think well, now it will just be shabby chic! Added the finishing touches and voila!!!
You might not think it looks too bad, and I didn't think so either.....until....
Yep I sewed it together!!! Bahahahahahahaha!!!
So yeah. This didn't pan out. Lol I still don't know what I am doing wrong with the zig zag stitch, but I will keep trying!!!! Lol
